Trainee Sales Engineer

Air Control Industries is a world force in air movement technology.

For over fifty years Air Control Industries Ltd have been designing and manufacturing an extensive range of industrial fans; blowers; bespoke air knife systems; bottle and can drying systems; cable and wire drying equipment and personnel de-dusting units to many different industrial sectors globally. Our commitment to providing the highest quality product possible and putting the customer at the heart of all we do has meant we continue to be at the very forefront of air movement technology.

What you’ll be doing:

Joining an established and experienced sales team, you will be trained and developed in our extensive product portfolio to solve customers’ air movement requirements. Taking the time to shadow and learn from our team of experienced Sales Engineers as well as our Technical Design Team, including getting out on the road visiting clients, this practical experience will kick start your learning and enable you to start taking on real sales responsibilities with plenty of support.

No sales experience is necessary to apply for this role, as it’s more about building long-term customer relationships, which are key for our business. You’ll therefore need to enjoy communicating with others with your strong people skills and have good interpersonal skills.

We will help you learn to ask the right questions so you can assist with diagnosing customers’ requirements. You won’t be actually designing the solution – that is done by a separate team of specialist Design Team; however, you will be responsible for developing the technical specification with the customer and for managing each project on the customer side from project origination through to delivery. As you start to become more established, there will be opportunities to travel to visit customers in the UK and even overseas.

What you need in order to apply:

  • Educated to a minimum of ‘A’ Level or BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma ideally in Maths/Science/Engineering
  • Strong interest in Engineering, either through study or technical hobbies
  • Highly motivated and driven by results
  • Good work ethic and prepared to commit
  • Excellent organisational skills
  • Keen to learn and develop yourself
  • Confident communicator with team members and customers
  • Proficient in the use of all Microsoft Office applications i.e. Word, Excel, Teams
  • Willingness to travel from time to time
  • A full driving licence would be advantageous

In return for your talents we will offer you:

  • A real opportunity to join and contribute to an established and successful business
  • Full support and training to develop your learning
  • Competitive rate of pay
  • Opportunity to earn a discretionary sales related bonus after a qualifying period
  • 25 days holiday plus all statutory bank holidays
  • Salary sacrifice personal pension scheme
  • Life assurance scheme
  • Every Friday afternoon off as the business closes at 12.45 pm

While a strong academic record of achievement is important, we also look for individuals that can demonstrate that they have an entrepreneurial flair, the drive to succeed, a genuine interest in Engineering and a passion for sales – If that’s you, we would love to hear from you.
