The Role

Benchmark - Business Development Executive

Based: Ashton-under-Lyne

Salary: up to £30,000, depending on experience

Hello and thank you for your interest in our role!

As a Business Development Executive, you'll be the face (and voice) of the business. You'll quite literally go the extra mile to proactively identify and secure new business opportunities, networking with existing and prospective customers out in the field to show them just what Benchmark can offer. You'll also stay ahead of the curve on market trends and competitor activity, using this information alongside customer spend patterns to grow sales and drive targets for your team - all whilst providing the fantastic service our customers know and love.

As a Business Development Executive you'll spend the majority of your time out in the field visiting customers to understand and support their needs. Your role will support all 5 Benchmark Branches, in and around the Greater Manchester area, this includes Ashton, Bolton, Bredbury, Irlam and Mossley.

Working for Benchmark, no two days are the same. You will have the opportunity to support and advise customers on our extensive building products and service range - no matter how big or small their project is! You will take pride in being an important part of the Benchmark mission to be 'The Most Trusted Merchant in Town'

We've been in the industry since 1996 so we can proudly say we know a thing or two about providing our customers with the tools and materials they need to complete their building projects. The Benchmark team are a family, we value, respect and occasionally have the odd joke at the expense of each other - but what family doesn't? All this makes us who we are - a close knit team on a mission. But we couldn't give our customers a service they can trust without our people, and this is where you step in.

So, what are we looking for?

  • Experience of working in an inbound sales role, with a curious and proactive approach
  • Motivation to secure and increase sales orders
  • A genuine enthusiasm for dealing with customers, and a 'customer 1st' attitude
  • The ability to build strong relationships internally and externally
  • A positive team player
  • The ability to organise and manage workload well

What will we offer you?

As part of Saint-Gobain Group, here at Gibbs & Dandy we offer:

  • A competitive salary
  • A discretionary bonus scheme
  • Opportunities for career progression and development
  • 31 days' holiday (including bank holidays), plus the option to buy or sell additional days
  • A defined contribution pension scheme
  • Great discounts across high street chains, online stores and holiday agents
  • Saint-Gobain Life Assurance Scheme
  • Access to a leading health and wellbeing portal

Sound like the job for you? Apply today to join us on our journey to be the most trusted merchant in town!

I look forward to your application

Thank you,

Leigh Hill

Operation & Sales Director
