Field Sales Executive

Job Description

Steadfast and determined: these are the two words that people use to describe your sales mentality. As a field sales executive at Samskip, you always see the best logistical solutions and present these to your prospects and existing clients. You go further than reaching your targets: you surpass them to expand your portfolio across Norway.

A standard job? We don't have those at Samskip.
Regardless of whether you're dealing with existing clients or new prospects: you immediately see what we can offer companies, and you then quickly close successful deals. You're not afraid to question existing supply chains, because you have a better solution at hand. Handling the onboarding of new clients is straightforward for you, and you're able to take our business development in Norway to a higher level. Thanks to your knowledge of the transport industry, you can help Samskip convince clients to switch from road haulage to sustainable sea transport. In the largest multimodal network in Europe, that's a huge challenge. And as a field sales executive, you accept the challenge wholeheartedly.

Samskip also relies on you to:

  • generate new leads with potential clients;
  • lead negotiations and prepare the best deals;
  • maintain balanced accounts for your activities.

An international position based in the ports of Norway.

From Samskip's offices, you have an international impact on our operations and share in the success of one of Europe's largest transport companies. On land, at sea and by rail. Your expertise has an international impact at Samskip.

International? Certainly. We ship goods across the globe, and to make this happen, we need many people. This means your work reaches much further than Norway alone, and you can literally see your work come and go while you look out of the windows of our offices. As we like to say: “we have the best view in the country”. Sustainable and environmentally-friendly transport is very important to us as a company, and you regularly reap the benefits of this. That's because we deliver many of the products you see in your supermarket, with the lowest possible environmental impact.

Quality, everywhere and always.

You can work in Oslo, Ålesund or Stavanger. Because this job involves a lot of travelling, your base is subject to negotiation. We're happy to work with you to find the best solution, so you can work close to home. Samskip has broad coverage along the entire Norwegian coast, which means your workplace is different every day. One thing is certain: you see many ports from close by.

You're part of a sales team with four colleagues – and they’re all professionals, just like you. This job demands a high degree of independence. Because of this, you support one another in your work – you help bring one another's strong points to the fore, and achieve the best possible result together.

You can count on us.

In addition to a non-standard job, a job in which you see the entire country and an international working environment, we offer the following based on a 40-hour working week:

  • A salary appropriate to your knowledge and background.
  • A car allowance.
  • 5 weeks annual leave.
  • A pension scheme and personal insurance.
  • Limitless opportunities for self-development.

Actions speak louder than words.

Because you've already earned your spurs in the logistics sector and know the market inside out, you bring innovative ideas with you. You focus on results and solutions in your work, and you're a natural leader. You really enjoy teaching others about your work, and you also want to learn something new every day. ​ So far so good? We'd love to hear from you if you also have:

  • a degree in logistics or commercial business administration;
  • 3-5 years' experience in a similar role;
  • knowledge and experience of working in the logistics sector;
  • an excellent command of spoken and written Norwegian and English; and
  • you are willing to travel within Norway for your job.

We're looking for you.

We can't wait for you to start, and we'll get your office chair ready for you. What do you need to do? Ensure you apply for this full-time job as soon as possible via the button below.
