The Role

You would be working with Sales Managers and Engineers to create quotes/estimates for materials, labour etc for the engineers/sales managers to take to clients, negotiating/challenging prices with suppliers. This is an office based role with some customer liaison when customers might call with repeat requests or certain parts. You would be supporting the sales managers with other aspects including dealing with enquiries and some of the more administrative work.

Experience working within a similar environment such as HVAC/building services or mechanical engineering would be ideal but anything related would be considered.
