Key Account Managers (North and South) – Automotive Aftermarket

leave a comment »

We are delighted to be retained by a very well known employer to recruit two new Key Account Managers.

Our client is a highly respected brand in the independent automotive aftermarket parts distribution sector. With sales in over 100 countries and their head office based inFrance, their product offering is broad. It includes clutches and braking systems, lighting and wiping systems, electric and electronic systems, and a whole range of complimentary service and replacement parts for the passenger car market.

Due to a recent restructure of their sales team they now need two Sales Managers to join their existing key accounts team to manage the regional members of the large parts Buying Groups.

The roles will operate from a home based location from which a territory either in the North or the South of the UK can be managed. The ideal geographic locations are the M3/M4 corridor in the South, and the Manchester / Leeds area in the North. However, this will be flexible for a candidate with the right background, experience and team fit.

The ideal candidate for either role must have a track record of sales gained within the automotive aftermarket. Key account management skills are highly desirable, and past experience of managing buying group or motor factor business will be ideal.

The base salaries on offer are substantial and backed up with a strong bonus scheme, as well as a company car and the normal additional benefits package. The expected OTE is in the £50k salary bracket.
