Commercial Sales Manager

Ref: 53648

In today’s tough financial climate, every pound matters. That’s why we’re setting up an exciting new Commercial Operations Service to deliver our corporate priorities and high quality services for the local area. Intrigued? If you’re a Commercial Sales Manager who believes in giving back to communities, join us here in Lewisham – one of London’s leading authorities.

As the Commercial Sales Manager, you’ll have the vital task of promoting our new Commercial Operations Service. Maximising income through direct sales, you’ll focus on selling waste and resource management to a range of commercial and industrial organisations while taking a proactive approach to business compliance.

Once you have interested parties, you’ll negotiate waste collection and disposal agreements, aiming to boost our market share. You’ll also oversee compliance, ensuring all commercial waste is properly stored, handled, collected and disposed of correctly. That means working closely with the Enforcement Team and using enforcement powers to bring organisations in line with legislation. Extensive, up-to-date knowledge of this area of the law is crucial, so you must be an experienced professional. 

To make the grade, you’ll need to be an innovative and enterprising team leader, who’s always looking for ways to improve our service. With excellent communication skills, you can negotiate, influence partners and motivate your team. Now, you’re keen to put your talents to the test in a brand new function and a borough that never stands still.
