A leading nationwide supplier of sports nutrition products and health & fitness supplements is presently looking to increase its sales team in West Yorkshire.

The Position:

The successful candidate will be tasked with increasing market share and brand recognition through:

- Meeting and exceeding new business sales targets (approximately 40 sales calls a day)
- Lead generation for external representatives
- Forging strong relationships with existing customers
- Following up on customer enquiries in an organised manner
- Using Salesforce CRM to improve the efficiency of sales workflows
- Working closely with other departments in the business
- Occasional client visits in conjunction with field sales teams

The Candidate:

Applicants will be expected to demonstrate:

- A minimum of two years' business to business sales experience
- Strong negotiation and closing skills
- A dynamic, outgoing, enquiring and resourceful personality
- (Ideally) experience of working with Salesforce CRM
- The ability to empathise with customers and focus upon THEIR needs

Specific sports nutrition knowledge is by no means a prerequisite as product training will be provided but an interest in the health & fitness industry would clearly be a distinct advantage

The Company:

A leading sports nutrition business with exclusive distribution rights to some of the world's best known supplement brands, our client trades successfully through gym groups, wholesale channels and its own established retail presence. Committed to delivering outstanding customer service, excellent product advice and an extensive range of innovative products to its loyal and supportive customers, the company's ongoing expansion provides the perfect platform for individuals' continued personal development and career progression.
