Ideally the candidate will have experience of the Garden Centre industry and will have gained solid commercial skills working in a fast-paced field sales environment.
We want someone who is as equally driven by providing a good service as they are in driving sales. You'll be determined, with a proven sales performance track record and the ability to deliver results. Self-motivation is key and a desire to succeed is essential.
