You will ensure consistent, informative communication, with measures ranging from flyers to websites. You will keep the media informed of important news, set up networks, and establish trusting relationships with customers, business partners, and journalists. Working closely with management and various corporate departments, you will coordinate the work of service providers, such as agencies, authors, and printers.

Sales commercial

In Sales Commercial, you will be responsible for the success of a particular sales region. You will plan and coordinate the financial and commercial side of things, and ensure that sales and earnings targets are met. You will work in field sales or even lead a field sales team, and manage regional key accounts. Vital aspects will also include acquiring new customers, negotiating commercial contracts, developing a profitable price policy, and subsequently coordinating the necessary logistics processes. In addition, you will constantly monitor the market and competitors, and develop appropriate sales strategies. Establishing close links with relevant opinion leaders, media, and customers and showcasing our presence in your region — for example, at exhibitions or distributor fairs — will also be crucial to your performance. Not least, you will liaise with other divisions and departments on issues such as customer requirements analysis, sales support for new products, and the analysis of budget variances.

Sales industrial
