Company: Kompan

Reports to: Regional Sales Manager

Based in: London

Contact name: Colin Perkins

Contact email: [email protected]


We are expanding our sales team!

KOMPAN are the UK market leader for outdoor play, sport and fitness solutions and are expanding our UK operations due to customer demand.   Above all, we are a great Company to work for, ensuring that we provide professional support and give personal recognition for achievements to all our employees at every level of the business. We have a huge range of great products, an innovation pipeline that continues to deliver new and exciting solutions to target new market sectors, a professional and committed back office team and best in class sales tools.  Together, these ensure that our sales team can spend more time with their customers and work together to  find the right, innovative solutions for our fast expanding range of clients.

We are seeking an ambitious and energetic individual, ideally with experience of selling outdoor play, sport and fitness solutions.  However, if you have the talent and vision, we are happy to consider and to develop sales people with experience of selling into the public sector and / or the construction industry who can use their experience and skills to engage with key decision makers in all markets in London with creative playground solutions. We are flexible as to your home location, but ideally you will live in the Greater London or immediately surrounding area and are currently or have recently covered London in some way, as the role would require you to spend 4 days a week working and meeting clients within London.

Selling into the outdoor play, sport and fitness market is a fantastic sales job; it’s both challenging (you need to be self-driven, have an eye for design, understand construction, be a great communicator, work as part of a team and not be afraid to get wet and cold occasionally) and rewarding (seeing the finished site with a happy customer and a happy community is the best feeling).

We are well established in London with an existing customer base, but the successful candidate will be expected to continue the recent growth through innovative and exciting playground solutions across the territory.

Main duties & responsibilities

  • Build a territory plan together with your Regional Sales Manager for your business within all available market sectors in London and execute the plan
  • Excellent market coverage through regular contact and face to face visits to identify & qualify opportunities and subsequently quote to agreed levels
  • Drive up your win rate by matching and exceeding customer expectations
  • Confidently present our creative/innovative solutions for clients
  • Feedback market information to KOMPAN so that we can use the data to help you and your customers achieve even more.

Skills and Attributes required – Simply the four “P’s”

  • PASSION to succeed, above all for the customer, but also for KOMPAN and you/your family
  • PROGRESS, a determination and wish to progress in a company who want to continuously improve both our employees and our products/ranges
  • PERFORMANCE orientated, with a sense of urgency and accountability for results
  • PEOPLE person who wants to work in a PEOPLE COMPANY and alongside back office teams committed to deliver the “best in class” solutions
  • Industry experience is preferable but not essential as we are renowned for our support and training
  • IT literate in CRM, Microsoft suite of tools such as MSWord and MSExcel 

The reward

Mainly that you would join a world class team in a company with world class products and work hard whilst having fun.
