Sales Executive Italy

Job Description

Social, an open personality, yet a hunter's instinct: that's exactly what we're looking for in you as Sales Executive Italy at Samskip. You and your car are inseparable, and you travel the length and breadth of Italy to close the best deals. You maintain relationships, expand your portfolio, and find the best logistical solutions for our clients. You're not afraid of meeting targets at Europe's largest transport company, because you see those targets as an invitation to excel.

A standard job? We don't have those at Samskip.
You work with a portfolio of around 4 million Euro in annual sales – and it's up to you to expand that portfolio as much as possible. Between making jokes with your funny and committed colleagues, you seek out potential clients and note them as leads in our CRM. You write quotations, explain them to clients and – needless to say – arrange their implementation as soon as the client accepts your proposal. Of course, you know better than anyone that maintaining relationships with our existing clients is just as important. That's why you always keep them up to date about new developments in Samskip's services. At Samskip, you're given a huge amount of freedom to arrange your workload as efficiently as possible. This means it's up to you where and when you reach your targets. Your role also involves:

  • working within the agreed budgets;
  • visiting clients;
  • maintaining balanced accounts for your activities;
  • resolving any complaints.

An international position based in Italy.
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 that happen, we need a lot of people. This means your work reaches much further than Italy alone, because your deals span the globe. 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. Perhaps you can add a few more supermarkets to our client portfolio?

Quality, everywhere and always.

You'll work in Cernusco-Sul-Naviglio, although you'll soon find you're on the road a lot and that you only spend around half your time in the office. Samskip has broad coverage across Italy, which means your workplace will be different every day. Our offices can be reached very easily from Milan and Bergamo because we're almost right next to the A51 and A58.

You'll join a small and personal team, where collaboration and sales pleasure are key. Together with the team, you will hunt for new business, and celebrate successes to the full. Your work involves a great deal of independence, although you support one another during implementation. In this way, 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 38.75-hour working week:

  • A salary appropriate to your experience and background.
  • A company car.
  • 22 days annual leave.
  • Ticket restaurant.
  • Limitless opportunities for self-development.

Actions speak louder than words.

Because you've already earned your spurs in the logistics sector, and have worked in sales for several years, you're the ideal candidate for this position. As you're an empathic negotiator, you can always close deals to the full satisfaction of both parties. Although helping your team is always your top priority, you're just as strong in individual work. So far so good? We'd love to hear from you if you also have:

  • a bachelor's degree in logistics or (commercial) business administration;
  • 1-3 years' experience in the role of account manager, or another sales-related position;
  • knowledge and experience of working in the logistics sector;
  • extensive knowledge of Microsoft Office;
  • the willingness to travel within Italy for your job;
  • an excellent command of written and spoken Italian and English.

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.
