Architectural Lighting Sales Specialist
From a lighting or high-end interior furnishings background, we’re seeking a real top-level grafter who can identify a clients problems and look for ways in which to solve them – rather than just ‘sell a product’.
Anyone can pick up a phone and pitch, but it’s a rare few who can connect with a customer and effectively communicate information in an articulate, approachable, friendly and persuasive manner.
This is an extraordinary attribute, and this is precisely what we are looking for.
We’d like to see 2 – 5 yrs experience from the afore-mentioned sales background of lighting or high-end furnishings, plus a real drive and a solid initiative for getting struck into something new. We’d use the word passion – but it’s often over-used and over-hyped. If that’s what you really have though, that’s exactly what we’d like to see.
The range of lighting products is of a beautiful, high end specification and distributed throughout a network of design houses and architectural lighting practices globally, for projects such as high end residential, boutique, galleries, restaurants and so on.
Your role in this would involve building solid relationships with and selling to lighting designers and interior designers in and around Central London, based out of the London showroom and working as part of a fairly intimate team.
You would of course be required to oversee current clients in addition to generating new business, with an achievable and realistic target arrangement as follows: –
Year 1 – 250k
Year 2 – 500k
Year 3 – 750k
Plus, a very healthy commission structure on target earnings.
The company seeking your talents are a European architectural and decorative lighting manufacturer who have been established for almost 60 years, considered to be design icons at an International level. Whilst the London team is relatively small, they employ over 750 people globally.
