Estimator / Technical Sales Advisor

£22,000 - £26,000 per year

We are looking for an enthusiastic Technical Sales Advisor / Estimator to join our friendly, growing company. Our rural location, 5 miles from Lincoln, offers a pleasant working environment, with a nature park and golf course nearby. 

You will handle incoming sales enquiries, discussing technical requirements with the customer, advise on suitable product options and then produce detailed quotations. Successful sales will lead to project management of the order, liaising with the customer through to delivery/installation and aftercare. 

It’s rare to have two of the same days at DoorTechnik; we tend to manufacture the doors that others can’t. You will often need to research new materials and hardware, and liaise with the technical team to find solutions for our customers. Enquiries can vary from those that need a simple door with a straightforward verbal response, to longer projects where you can be involved with specifiers and architects from the very start.

Though this is a mainly office-based sales role, you will also travel to meet some customers on site. After training, some home working is possible.

You will need excellent sales and communication skills, both verbal and written. A high standard of written English is required, with good composition, grammar and spelling.

Whilst you will be part of a small team and working towards team goals and objectives, you will be responsible for your own customers and projects, so you must be able to work on your own initiative.

You will need to develop an extensive knowledge of our products, website and relevant legislation. Training is given, but you must enjoy learning and be a self-motivated continual learner.

IT competency is essential for this position, using MS Office. You will be trained in the use of our specialist software.

Previous sales or advisory experience in engineering, construction, or consumer electronics would be an advantage, though is not essential.
