Thorne & Derrick have been asked to advertise the following exciting job opportunity for a High Voltage Sales Manager responsible for high voltage electric cable sales into the Electrical Utilities Sector.

Wanted : High Voltage Cable Sales Manager

  • Briefly

This is a fantastic career opportunity to work for Copper Cable Company (fully owned subsidiary of Tele-Fonika Kable based in Poland) who have been operating in the UK for over 25 years with an extensive customer base in the Electrical Industry. The company has several manufacturing sites in Poland, Serbia and Ukraine and is the third largest Electrical Cable manufacturer in Europe.

The ideal applicant must have excellent relationship and team building skills, be highly organised and must be able to work on their own initiative without any direct supervision. The successful candidate would be in charge of developing business with both new and existing high voltage customers.

The ideal candidate would have good contacts within the electrical industry and be able to conduct technical discussions with senior engineers within the major utility companies.

As much of the role will be tendering for major projects, the successful applicant will be adept at putting together presentable tender documentation, having already gathered the necessary information through liaison with key personnel in the technical and production departments

The applicant will also be expected to manage key accounts with a purchasing portfolio broader than high voltage cables alone, so preferably the candidate will also have a broad knowledge of cables in general.
