Field Sales Executive

Job Description

Bring your drive and multimodal vision to a key customer-facing role within our dynamic international logistics company

We seek an ambitious sales professional to help our leading logistics operation build new multimodal links between Poland and the rest of Europe

The transport industry is changing. To help us shape and respond to those changes we’re looking for an ambitious and creative Sales Executive who can become an outstanding brand ambassador in Poland and beyond. By deploying a complete range of customer-facing skills you will both explain and sell our multimodal transport solutions to a wide range of clients. In doing so you will make a significant contribution to the sustainable growth and profitability of our organisation.

An international and multimodal opportunity

Samskip is an international company that provides the latest and most sustainable logistics solutions worldwide. Right now, we are rapidly evolving exciting new multimodal transport models in response to the challenges and opportunities of Brexit, the Covid-19 pandemic and the ongoing need to find more sustainable transport solutions. In particular, we are building stronger links with the UK and offering our customers digital portals that keep them informed at all times. You’ll be at the heart of all this, working within a dynamic and expert team based at our vibrant Polish headquarters in the important hub city of Gdańsk.

Developing sales and relationships

Your core task in this high-profile role is to grow our business by introducing existing and potential customers to our innovative multimodal products. This requires you to be an effective networker who can develop and sustain customer relationships while handling the sales process from beginning to end. Within this context, your day-to-day activities include:

  • Discussing the feasibility of logistical solutions with the Operations Team;
  • Developing Sales plans and quotations;
  • Ensuring our CRM system is up-to-date, including complete reports of visits and leads;
  • Representing our organisation at international trade fairs and industry events.

You also perform market research and client analyses in order to provide trade teams with information for product optimisation.

Beyond Poland

Above all, this is an opportunity for you to have an international impact on our operations and share in the success of one of Europe's largest transport companies. We transport goods across the globe on land, at sea and by rail. It is important to Samskip as a company that we do this via the most sustainable and environmentally friendly methods available. This benefits everybody because we deliver many of the products you see in your supermarket.

A great place to work

At Samskip we aim to create a great working environment in which everyone works together while being challenged every day. We are also keen for you to develop yourself both personally and professionally. To that end, everyone can access the training and e-learning provided by our Samskip Academy. And we want Samskip to be a place where colleagues become friends. So when the pandemic is over you can be sure that we‘ll be organizing regular social events once again!

Other benefits include:

  • A competitive compensation package;
  • A company car, laptop and mobile phone;
  • 26 days of annual leave;
  • Medical Insurance.

Ideally, you have also gained knowledge of short sea transactions while working for a short sea operator or a logistics operator. And, of course, it is important that you enjoy travelling as well as the social side of your work. With all this you bring the following:
