Cembre are an industry leading manufacturer of electrical compression connectors and installation tooling. We’re looking for a Sales Support Graduate who will join our expanding UK division and progress to become a future top performer in our external sales team.

We are one of the largest European specialists in this field and we’re committed to quality and innovation. These commitments mean that we are the trusted supplier for global electrical, rail and utilities companies. Our brand is synonymous with excellence and we have ambitious growth plans for the future.

Main Purpose of the Role

In this commercial role, your primary responsibility will be to provide support to customers on the very popular thermal printing machine, MARKINGenius. You will be the internal support contact for customers, advising them on particular products, tools and installation processes.

You will be provided with extensive training on the product and will eventually visit customers in their businesses to see the machinery in action.

On a typical day, you will work with the internal commercial team to advise and support customers. This is not a telesales role; you will be providing support to customers, through telephone and email, who have purchased the MARKINGenius machinery. Other day-to-day tasks are likely to include:

  • Preparing quotations for customers
  • Advising customers on selecting the correct product (connector) and the tools required to install that product
  • Using the SAP computer system

If you progress from this role into an external commercial role, you will provide support to customers through site visits, consultative meetings and product demonstrations.

The Individual

We are looking for bright, self-aware, proactive graduates to join our team.

To be successful in this role, you will be:

  • Inquisitive
  • Resilient
  • Willing to learn
  • Personable
  • Proactive
  • Commercially aware
  • Have strong IT skills

Academically, we are looking for graduates with a 2:1 or higher from any degree discipline, having achieved CCC or equivalent at A-level.

Whilst experience is not essential, customer service experience would be advantageous. We are looking for personable individuals who know how to deal with customers and handle customer problems effectively.

Salary & Benefits

We know how hard graduates work and what a substantial contribution they make to businesses and because of this, we offer the people who join us a very attractive package:

  • A starting salary of £20,000 - £25,000 (depending on experience)
  • 22 days annual leave (plus Bank Holidays)
  • Invitation to a competitive pension scheme
  • Progression into the Business Development function or other areas of the business

Training Opportunities & Progression

A training programme will be in place when you join to ensure you gain a full understanding of the systems and processes we use. You will receive full product training and shadow members of your team to help you gather the best ways of approaching the role and its key responsibilities.

Your resilience and willingness will be rewarded with excellent opportunities to progress at Cembre. If successful in this role, you could progress into the Business Development function, or even into a Sales Engineer role.

Cembre have strong staff retention rates and are passionate about growing and developing people within their business.
