40 hours per week (part time and job shares considered)
This is a really exciting opportunity to further develop your skills as part of a pioneering worker co-operative. This position offers excellent employment benefits and a voice in the running of an ethical business.
The role is based at our warehouse in Bristol, but (where Covid restrictions allow) you will spend a significant portion of your time out visiting our customers around the country with occasional overnight stays. You will work closely with our Sales, Marketing and Transport departments and your main objective is to build and maintain loyal relationships with our fantastic customers across the South West and beyond.
This position is designed to focus on retaining and growing sales within our existing customer base rather than the more traditional target-driven “repping” styles.
The role requires a can-do attitude, the willingness and ability to learn, and great interpersonal skills both face to face and over the telephone. Sales experience is beneficial but not essential as full training is provided. The successful candidate will be well-organised, a good team player, show great attention to detail and have a clean driving licence.
Here at Essential, you’ll be joining a diverse, dynamic and positive bunch of people aiming to change the world for the better. We are a wholesaler, manufacturer and retailer specialising in ethically-produced, organic, fair trade and GMO-free food, sourced from all corners of the globe.
The starting wage is £11.20 per hour or £23 360 pro-rata per annum, increasing with length of service, plus benefits and worker discounts.
Deadline for applications is 12pm on Friday, 21st January. We may close the recruitment early if a sufficient number of applications are received before the deadline date.
