Technical Sales Representative – Paper & Textile

Are you a qualified polymer scientist or chemist looking to move into a role with more commercial exposure? Or possibly a technical sales professional who is looking to move into a new environment with better career prospects?

An international public company focused on polymer formulations for multiple market applications is currently looking to bring on a Regional Technical Sales Rep to increase their commercial impact within the binders business. This business unit provides tailored polymer solutions to the Paper & Board and Textiles industries.

If you are a very technically-focused polymer/ materials scientist who has strong commercial acumen then this position will be a great fit. The role will break down into three main components; management of a portfolio of client accounts within the EMEA region, developing the paper/textile application and providing technical support for customers. The most successful sales representatives will work closely with R&D and marketing to ensure customer feedback is being implemented in the product development cycle. They will also be able to simultaneously maintain and build client relationships whilst hunting out new business.

The position in question is a key addition to the EMEA commercial and application development team at a company offering unparalleled career enhancement opportunities. This role offers the opportunity to join a company where office doors are open, many different languages are spoken in the corridors and every employee has a voice. They wish to take on an energetic technical candidate who will use all opportunities to develop their knowledge and commercial acumen. As the company grows and the European organisation adapts there will be increasing opportunity for development into different areas including sales, R&D, marketing or even general management. Candidates who have experience of styrene and acrylic chemistry, especially water-based dispersions, will find themselves technically advanced in this environment as they strive to create more sustainable solutions for the industrial world.
