PlaceMakers is a fast-paced and highly regarded partner to the construction industry. Our people strive to deliver the very highest level of service to our customers every day. Internal promotions occur regularly and for that reason, we have created a new sales development pathway for enthusiastic and passionate individuals that are looking to launch their sales career with us and may not know where to start! 

The Role:
This is where it gets exciting!!! The first 12 months is where you’ll work through a structured programme fully supported by department managers to build your knowledge across all sales and operational areas. There will be so much variety as you’ll be engaging with both internal and external stakeholders while developing a good base knowledge of building products and the broader industry. This will provide you with exposure to day to day tasks and industry-specific requirements across the following key areas - 

  • Yard/Drive-Thru 
  • Dispatch
  • Inventory 
  • Showroom including Fasteners, Tools, Paint & Bathrooms
  • Trade Sales Support
  • Estimations
  • Field Sales

On completion of this initial programme, you’ll be assigned your own set of accounts to manage that will further support your growth and development in sales.

About You: 
Ideally, you will be degree qualified in a business or related discipline and have a burning desire to put your learnings into practice. There’s just something about the building industry that excites you and you’re eager to learn what’s involved and what you’re passionate about. You want to align yourself with a company that will heavily invest in you and your future career. In return, you’ll demonstrate an exceptional work ethic, plenty of enthusiasm, and energy with the desire to excel in everything you do.
