Product Marketing Specialist - Surge Protection Products

Basic salary between £40,000 and £45,000 + bonus + car + benefits

Covering the UK

A rare opportunity has arisen working for a huge multinational engineering solutions organisation due to someone moving internally within the company. This position is a sales and support role as a surge protection specialist so needs someone with a good technical knowledge of that type of product. You're working for a manufacturer so get some great benefits including car, bonus, good pension scheme, BUPA, 28 days holiday + bank holidays and much more.

The Role:

  • A field and home based specialist sales and marketing role which is split into 2 parts. Part of your time will be dealing directly with customers and intermediaries including consultants, panel manufacturers and lightning conductor engineers. The other is acting as a product specialist to support the general sales team on large projects that include surge protection.
  • Mainly you'll be focused on earthing, lightning and electronic systems protection
  • Defining and implementing sales and marketing strategies in the UK
  • Introducing new products to market and phasing out obsolete ones
  • Covering the UK as this is a very niche sector
  • A lot of time will be spent delivering CPD seminars to consultants during the specification process.
  • This role could also be known as a technical sales specialist as there is definitely a sales focus in the position.

The Person:

  • You'll have experience working with surge or lightning protection products previously as this is a specialist role
  • Sales experience is needed as well as good presentation skills
  • Ideally you'd be based in the Midlands or south but we would consider strong candidates in the north too
  • A qualification in an electrical or electronic discipline is needed as you'll be designing surge protection solutions to client specifications
  • You need to be comfortable working from home, covering a UK patch but with some visits to the office in the Midlands.

The Package:

  • A basic salary between £40,000 and £45,000 is offered
  • There is a bonus of up to 25% of salary
  • Company car
  • BUPA
  • Health cash plan
  • Pension up to 10%
  • Excellent progression opportunities as you're working for a market leading manufacturer with a multinational presence
  • 28 days holiday + bank holidays
  • Other benefits

This is a great opportunity to join a world leading business in a key role. The position is available from August so please apply below and we will be in touch with shortlisted candidates within 48 hours.
