Sales Engineer (Trainee) - Lasers - South UK - to £28K (£31K OTE)

A rare and exciting opportunity to start your sales career in the high-tech world of lasers. You'll enjoy the close support and company involvement that you can only get from working in a small organisation but with the backing of some much larger companies. You'll be guided and mentored by one of the most successful business developers in the industry who has a track record of inspiring success in enthusiastic employees. This company represents four major established manufacturers of laser products. These products include laser diodes, femtosecond fiber lasers, industrial lasers and wavelength meters costing from £10,000 to £150,000. They are used in a range of applications including metrology, spectroscopy, microscopy and optical data storage. Business has grown at such a rate that an extra sales person is required! You will be handling mostly established business and although some new business generation is required there will be NO cold calling. You will be handling quotes and making presentations typically at professor level - 98% of which will be within universities throughout the UK and Ireland. During the initial training period you are likely to spend most of your time in the office. As you gain experience you will make increasing numbers of field visits until you are spending around 3 days per week visiting customers and 2 days in the office planning your calls. This is a commercial position that requires a high level of technical understanding of lasers; consequently you need to be educated to degree level in a physics subject. You should also be extremely enthusiastic with a genuine desire to escape academia and develop your career in sales. You will certainly need the aptitude and character to be successful in sales but you do not need to have any previous sales experience - excellent training will be provided!
