Do you have experience of successfully selling an operational service, for example commercial cleaning, facilities or decontamination? If you’re hungry for a new challenge, here’s an exciting opportunity to grow sales of Grundon’s specialised services (think tank cleaning, site decontamination, decommissioning, spillages, emergency response clearances and more). As Business Development Executive, reporting in to our South Oxfordshire head office but predominantly field-based and covering mainly the Home Counties and London, you will join us on a permanent full-time contract and earn a competitive salary and sales commission, plus a host of great benefits, including:

– Company car
– Discretionary company bonuses
– Pension scheme (you contribute 5% of pay, Grundon matches this) with life insurance cover
– 30 days’ annual leave (inclusive of 8 bank holidays), which will increase with service, plus the option to buy up to 5 extra days’ holiday

 The Business Development Executive role

The Industrial Services arm of our hazardous-waste area of the business provides varied services to Grundon customers across our operating area and it is growing! As Business Development Executive, you will work closely with our Industrial Services Manager to build and develop a customer base with varied requirements – from industrial preventative maintenance needs to reactive emergencies in various industries, from food manufacturing to pharma research.

You will retain existing business; however the emphasis will be to establish new customers, undertaking site visits and thoroughly assessing jobs. Building relationships with other Grundon sales teams to generate leads is also important.

What we are looking for in our Business Development Executive

– A proactive and collaborative sales professional with a proven track record of negotiating and closing deals, ideally in the specialised cleaning/decontamination/industrial services industry.

– A degree of waste knowledge, as compliance with health, safety and environmental regulations is essential.

– Good computer skills, including social media.

– Full UK driving licence.

Working hours: 37.5 per week – 8.30am-5pm, Mon-Fri, although flexibility will be required

Grow with Grundon

Grundon is a long-established and award-winning waste management, environmental and quarrying company that develops and invests in the people that work for us.
