Business Development Manager- European Road Freight

Negotiable Transport and Logistics Dublin West

Business Development Manager – European Road Freight

Due to an internal promotion, I am recruiting a sales and target driven Business Development Manager who will generate revenue for Road Freight through both new and existing customers across ROI.

My Dublin West client is a leading and well respected international Logistics business and this person will focus on the selling of European Road Transport to mainly the chemical, DIY and pharmaceutical industries.

Reporting to the Head of Sales, the Business Development Manager will focus on Irish customers who have road freight going into the UK and Europe or coming from the UK and Europe into Ireland. Domestic warehousing will also be a focus.

It is really important that this person has knowledge of road freight (not necessarily in sales) and can hit the ground running.

Once this person gets comfortable in their job, they will expect to be out on the road 80% of the time and the balance office or home based making calls and setting up appointments.

A Leinster based candidate would be ideal.

Salary is €60-€70k, Bonus, Company Car, 5% Pension Contribution and Discounted Health Insurance.

This is a great opportunity to join a world recognised logistics business.
