with one comment

This is an excellent opportunity to join a brand leader in the automotive aftermarket parts distribution world in senior position.

I am delighted to be working with a very well-known manufacturer of automotive spares and components for the aftermarket. They have a very strong presence across Europe, a well-developed and highly visible corporate brand with a reputation for quality and service delivery, as well as well-established distribution and sales channels in the UK motor vehicle aftermarket.

They now require a senior Sales and Marketing professional for their Midlands-based business.

As a key member of the senior management team, you will be tasked with responsibility for all sales, marketing and commercial activity in this sales-driven organisation. The sales team is geographically spread across the UK, and leadership of this team is a key objective for this position. You will also be responsible for the development of key client relationships within the major motor and parts factors, buying groups and other major buyers of spares. The role also has a wide strategic element, together with a high level of analytical and reporting detail.

The ideal candidate will be a seasoned automotive business development specialist. You will have a highly developed and professional communication style, supported by sound commercial acumen and a high degree of sales and marketing knowledge. In addition, you will have demonstrable analytical skills, coupled with the ability to work in a multi-national organisation liaising at senior level.

  1. Hi Cathy,
    I am currently a British subject residing in the USA.
    Originally I worked for a British Accesories manufacturer,who transferred me to the US on a temporary basis where i started my own manufacturing company building truck accessories .
    I have been thinking about returning to the UK ,and this may be an opportunity .
    Also I have a deep experience of the US Aftermarket which may be a bonus.
