Job Description

Technical Sales Engineer /Sales and Business Development Engineer x2
This is a great opportunity for high calibre engineers to join an award winning and secure industry leader, and be involved in business development and sales activity to the aerospace, defence and associated markets.
You will be working hand-in-hand with the design engineers, spending time visiting and developing business relationships with key clients, providing them with technical and commercial solutions.
This will include:
* Identifying and developing new business and converting these into orders.
* Carrying out product selection and analysis using analysis software.
* Preparing technical and commercial proposals, budgets and competitor market information.
* Establish technical and commercial requirements and assist clients to develop specifications as required.
* Negotiating technical and commercial contracts.
As these are long-term sales cycles, they are unaffected by Covid-19 slowdown.
Whilst experienced technical sales engineers with relevant aerospace/defence industry experience would be seen as ideal, if you are a qualified and capable Mechanical Engineer (such as Design/applications/systems engineer or similar within a manufacturing environment) who is capable of understanding complex technical and commercial matters, possesses excellent people skills and has the drive and ability to develop business relationships, then this role is for you.
My client also seeks another more specialist Technical sales role where the ideal candidate would be an avionics type engineer or someone who understands aircraft instrumentation/systems, along with a degree (or similar) in Electronics/mechanical engineering and the above technical and commercial skills.
A clean, UK valid driving licence is essential.
Knowledge of vibration industry would be advantageous, as would experience within the aerospace/defence industry.
There will be some delay on application feedback given the current situation but initial interviews will be by phone/skype.
The role will be based from Slough offices (social distancing set-up), so you will need to be within an easy commute of Slough.
Please note that this is not a commission-based sales role.
Salary flexible (Dep on what level of experience and expertise you can bring to the table)+ Co car + co. performance bonus +laptop+ mobile+ v.good contributory pension scheme+25 days holidays+bank holidays and private healthcare +product training and development
