We’re enjoying unprecedented sales enquiries – come to help us! Join a successful company to support the sales of high quality, high value products and services for shipping / merchant vessels

Role Info:

Sales Support / Commercial Executive – Wind Power Tech for Ships
London – currently WFH/Wapping but moving within 6 months to Tower Hill area
£40,000 – £45,000
Plus Benefits Package

Who we are:

We are global leaders in Wind Assisted Ship Propulsion.

Our mission is to advance Rotor Sail technology, accelerating its adoption across the world’s merchant fleet and proving it can benefit the sustainable future of shipping.

Rotor Sails harness power from the wind to help propel ships, enhancing vessel efficiency by decreasing fuel consumption, reducing bunker costs and lessening vessel emissions.

By combining this renewable energy technology with innovative engineering and a deep practical understanding of the shipping industry, we have developed Rotor Sail systems that offer fuel-saving benefits to a range of vessel types and sizes, both as new-builds and as retrofits.

We’re a small but growing company, centred in London with a second office in Southampton and an operational team at our suppliers and at the shipyards in China.

Main Duties and Responsibilities:

+ Proactively manages the sales process and engagements to achieve sales goals
+ Reviews the sales funnel and enquiries, in terms of risks and opportunities, undertaking assessment and pre-qualification of the opportunities to enable the appropriate use of resources
+ Take ownership for sales proposals and RFI/RFP responses, drafting input as required and collating all input to produce high quality, coherent, consistent and complete documents
+ Prepare presentations and other materials for client/ prospect meetings
+ Take minutes of meetings and follow up on actions on behalf of the sales team, communicating with and gaining input from the engineering team and others as required
+ Assist with the preparation for trade shows, conferences and other marketing events, attending and participating in these as required.

About You:

You will be degree educated, either in a business or a technical discipline and have experience in the marine sector. Not only do you need to know one end of a vessel from the other but you also need to be able to bridge the communication divide between technical and non-technical audiences. Making sales happen is what motivates you and you will have had relevant B2B experience to support this. We’re not expecting you to do wall-to-wall cold calling (phew!) so this role requires you to have commercial and emotional intelligence to assess sales opportunities and navigate these successfully to conclusion. It goes without saying that you’ll be highly organised, an adept problem solver and highly results driven.

We can offer you:

+ A competitive salary
+ 25 days’ holiday
+ Solid benefits package
+ Great colleagues
+ An opportunity to thrive
