We will offer hands-on training, flexible, remote home working (you will need to attend our Bradford (West Yorkshire) head office from time to time) and the opportunity to build a fantastic career with the largest logistics recruitment agency in the UK.


Key responsibilities:

  • Researching and identifying new prospects
  • Outbound B2B prospecting.
  • Generating new business appointments for the NSM
  • Building a strong sales pipeline

Preferred skills:

  • A passion for sales and enthusiasm to learn and develop these skills.
  • Ability to prioritise in a fast-paced environment whilst maintaining high standards.
  • A motivated self-starter,
  • Highly organised and a quick learner
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills.
  • Excellent interpersonal skills with the ability to build lasting relationships with prospective customers and internal stakeholders.
  • Keen eye for detail
  • IT literate.
