Jun 26, 2024



Are you a business-to-business sales professional who has a proven ability to grow strong relationships with your customer base coupled with the ability to deal with a wide and varied technical product range which changes on a regular basis?

dormakaba is currently looking for a Trade Counters Sales Representative, based in Somerset, Dorset or (ideally) Avon, to look after our customers in the facilities, construction and maintenance sectors.




Trade Counters is a hugely successful part of dormakaba selling door products and hardware directly to the construction, facilities and architectural ironmongery industry. The role is to provide a “bridge” between the customer and the trade counters depot. Based from home with regular visits to the office in Bristol, you will visit existing and new customers on a regular basis. You could be discussing upcoming projects, identify opportunities and promoting new products which could be of interest to the client. This will involve keeping up to date with current trends in product usage, technical specs, changes in legislation which may affect the use of these products, and being able to communicate this to both customers and colleagues to ensure that we are always “on point” with everything we do.  

Your aim will be to become the “trusted supplier” to these businesses, with a solution to every eventuality.

This role needs a real “team player” and effective communicator. Someone who can keep the office in touch with what is going on in the industry whilst developing the market, promoting the brand, creating and employing an effective sales strategy which enables you to hit targets and assure the success of the Trade Counters operation.




To be considered we need you to demonstrate:

  • Previous experience in a business-to-business sales role promoting technical products ideally (but not necessarily) to the construction or facilities industries.

  • Examples of being able to develop and maintain long term, “consultative” sales relationships with your customers, with clear systematic and strategic thinking.

  • Effective self-management and prioritisation skills with the ability to organise and maintain your own diary, as well as utilising IT systems for sales orders and customer relations management.

  • Full UK, manual drivers licence with no more than three penalty point
