Are you an exceptional Sales Manager with experience of growing and leading a successful sales function? Have you been told you are an inspiring manager and have a proven track record of success?

We embrace easy to use technology and innovation. You’ll have a great bunch of colleagues to work with and a good work life balance.

We anticipate you will be spending one night a week away from home meeting prospective clients and coaching your team.
