A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a Roadfreight & Senior Roadfreight Account Manager with experience of the Freight Forwarding industry (in particular land/road haulage) to join a world-class transport and logistics organisation on a full-time, permanent basis in the Northampton area.
This is a great chance to further develop your career with a well-established, privately owned business that provides complete logistics and supply chain solutions locally, nationally and internationally.
The role would suit an individual who has previous experience within the logistics sector, or has perhaps developed strong relationships within a Freight Forwarding environment as you will be responsible for coordinating and monitoring the operations for all road freight service activity.

It is essential therefore that you can demonstrate an ability to build positive, professional relationships to achieve profit growth through the effective management of new and existing customer accounts from initial sales through to delivery. You will be confident in developing a portfolio of customers by generating your own leads and sales appointments via telephone and e-mail, then managing and developing the account once they are trading with you. This will include the preparation of quotations for presentation to the customer, and managing all facets of the account for which you will be responsible.
Being the single point of contact for your customers, you will demonstrate professionalism, efficiency, a can-do attitude and have an enthusiastic and friendly manner as well as enjoy the buzz of the logistics sector, and developing a variety of client accounts.
Working hours are 9am-5.30pm. Salary is £20-30k, based on experience (rising to £40k in 3 years based on being on target)
