Sea to Summit Northern Area Sales Manager

The Mountain Boot co Ltd, UK and Ireland distributors for Sea to Summit (STS) are seeking an Area Sales Manager for an exciting new role focused on STS!..... Territory – Northern England, North Wales, Scotland and Ireland.

Building on global and domestic momentum with the STS brand, we are seeking to appoint for this exciting new role, to provide additional resource and focus aimed at driving the next stages of our targets and opportunity.

Remit – Reporting to the Sales Director/ Brand manager You will be responsible for developing the STS business in the territory through a wide range of current independent accounts. Key goals will be to increase the breadth of representation within these existing retailers and crucially enhance visual merchandising standards. In addition to existing accounts, you will be focused on opening new doors in core and diverse sectors. Alongside the sell in and sell out duties described above, staff training, and support will be a key focus within the independent base and with multiple branches from the likes of Cotswold, Go, Tiso, Brigham’s etc. This will be in store, but from time to time, could be in a centralised venue.

Whilst the business operates a world class show room facility for the brand in Kendal, it is key to stress that this resource/investment is very focused on “feet on the ground in stores”.

It is proposed that this role could be optimised through carrying key point of sale and potentially key sell in packages of stock and as such a fully expensed company van will be provided.

The role will require a degree of weekly feedback and reporting, including photography of visual merchandising standards and results.
