Smith Anderson regularly invests in new technology and machinery, ensuring that their product range exceeds customer expectations and that they remain at the forefront of the European Packaging Industry.

The business is looking to appoint a Head of Sales who will be responsible for managing the UK Field and Internal Sales Teams, developing opportunities with new and existing customers and contributing to the Sales & Marketing strategy in order to support the Company’s strategic growth objectives. The Head of Sales will report directly to the Chief Executive and will play a key part in the Management Team.

We are looking for an inspiring robust leader with an excellent track record in sales growth and customer management who can motivate an existing team to continue success. A background and understanding of the food service or packaging industry is desirable but not essential.
