J547 - Forage Products Sales - South

We have a vacancy for a determined sales person to become a Forage Specialist covering Dorset, Hants, Sussex, Wilts - as a result of growth in demand from farmers. Our client is a forward looking employer with a successful range of branded products including forage seed, forage preservatives etc which are directed primarily, but not exclusively, at serving the needs of dairy farmers as they seek to reduce their costs of production.

This post involves the motivating and influencing of general sales teams at sales meetings and on a "one to one" basis in order to promote the forage range. This will be done by providing both commercial and technical support as well as managing own ledger farm accounts in the county.

The successful applicant will have previous experience of sales to ruminant farmers and an interest in joining the increasingly important "production from forage" market where the opportunities for career growth are significant. Previous experience of the forage market will be useful but is not essential.

The role can be either largely field based or largely office based according to the preference of the successful candidate. Farm visits will be an important part of the sales and support process but cost effective use of the telephone and internet will also be expected.

The rewards package is negotiable and will reflect the experience of the successful applicants.

The Next Step. Please call for more information about this exciting role. John Davies on 01885 485523 / 07980 859953. Alternatively please e-mail your enquiry or CV (in Word or RTF format please, not PDF) to

Please be assured that all contact is treated in complete confidence.
