We are looking for an ambitious Inside Sales Representative to join our Laboratory Chemicals sales team in the UK.
As Inside Sales Representative, you will use your scientific knowledge and relationship building skills to sell our Laboratory Chemical products portfolio to our customers across the UK and to gain market share. You will initiate and build strong customer relationships over the phone and will also have the opportunity to meet with some of your key customers in person, driving sales over time.
This role reports to the Regional Sales Manager and involves selling the chemical brands from a general perspective and a project-specific approach, and works closely with field-based Chemical Specialists to support our customers.
You will be office-based at our Inchinnan site in Paisley, although some home office working may be possible.

It is expected that 75% of the role will be spent interfacing with customers, with 25% planning, training and reporting.
This role is ideal for a Chemistry (or Life Sciences) graduate with some sales or customer-facing experience, who wants to pursue a sales career at a global company. Our organization is developing and we guarantee an interesting and challenging position, in an international environment. We will provide full product and sales training to develop your selling skills and ensure your success in the role.
