The Company:

My client specialises in Research & Development Tax incentives, which are fully supported by the UK government. The service they offer is adding incredible value to the economy during these uncertain times by helping businesses unearth and access funding they were unaware they qualified for.

Research & Development can cover anything from a new Vegan product by your favourite food manufacturer to a new fertiliser that makes football pitches green and fresh all year round all the way to an independent bar building a new website or order-from-the-table apps!

After a few months hitting targets in the business you could have the chance to target a new niche sector that you have a background or interest in – meaning you could utilise that medical degree you worked hard for, the golfing background you’ve had from a young age or even an interest in manufacturing and farming.

This is a tough, hard-working B2B cold-calling sales role where resilience is going to be crucial, but the significant progression opportunities and huge earning potential beats every entry-level sales role in Manchester right now.

Over the last 20 years, my client has grown from a small consultancy firm to the largest independent financial consultancy firm in the UK. They also now operate in the international market with offices in 10 countries worldwide, including France, USA and Morocco. They compete directly with the big 4 and have achieved over 50% growth on last year. They're looking to continue to grow and want you to join the journey.

Joining in the state-of-the-art office headquartered in Central Manchester. With the training plan in place and progression routes you will find it hard to join a more rewarding trainee sales position.

Benefits/What You Get:

  • Basic salary of £22,000 with a fantastic progression plan. Most Entry-level sales roles in Manchester pay around £18,000 - £20,000, this beats that! During your first 12 months, your basic salary will gradually reach £29,000.
  • Average commission in year one is £37K+
  • Lucrative bonus/incentive schemes, including the opportunity to win iPads, Rolex’s etc.
  • Company holidays, to the likes of New York and throughout Europe
  • Regular socials and nights out in a welcoming, inclusive atmosphere
  • You'll go straight into their industry leading sales training programme before entering a buzzing sales floor where you’ll be surrounded by likeminded people who have been there and done it – willing to offer any help or support you may need

It's a unique opportunity for you to be a vital member of the team! You'll schedule business meetings with key decision makers within the Legal, Aerospace, Financial and Pharmaceutical spheres, to name a few. All of these markets are growing, and incredibly lucrative! Lucrative markets = BIG commission!
