About the company

Manx Tomkinson is a highly regarded brand of wool and synthetic carpets with styling to transform any living space. Based at the recently redesigned Headlam Tamworth, Manx Tomkinson is one of our heritage brands and leads through product excellence and colour.

Manx Tomkinson provides quality, choice and availability to Independent Retailers, Interior Designers & Contractors across the UK. This is all underpinned by an in-house distribution fleet, a dedicated product development team, and a progressive marketing and digital strategy.

About the Role

We are looking for an Area Sales Manager to take on the already well-established postcode areas.

You will inherit a significant customer base of Independent Retailers and contractors. Whilst we have a strong and enviable brand we need to keep evolving to remain leaders in the our field.  

Your role will be to identify new and existing customers’ potential and leveraging opportunities to grow sales with existing products. You will launch our new ranges into retailers and specifiers alike by creating and delivering a market leading presentation using our detailed sales decks.

Specifically, you’ll be responsible for

We’re looking for a sales professional who shares our passion for the floor covering sector; its products and trends. You’ll need to have the tenacity, enthusiasm and can-do attitude to take this amazing brand and build both excitement and commitment amongst existing and new customers.

Being out on the road means you’ll need to be self-reliant and self-motivated, but we’d like you to be a great team player too! We have a strong team ethos and encourage all colleagues to work together to provide the best experience for our customers.

In particular you'll bring:
