In a nutshell, a day in the life of a sales estimator at Strongdor is to take qualified incoming leads, turn them into a technical estimate/quote and follow these through the sales process to an order, which is very rewarding. You will have the opportunity to look after key accounts and build relationships with some great customers and watch and track your sales growth.
We have a great team of estimators that will always help with product knowledge, systems and processes, and have an extremely supportive team environment. Winning the Red Rose Awards as medium business of the year for Lancashire is proof in the pudding that we're a great team that strive for growth and a great customer experience.
We're looking for someone that is "Hungry" for sales, growth and to continually have the passion to always to better. "Humility" is also a key feature that we are looking for - someone that has the Team success at the centre of what they do, but can also voice a concern if they feel change is needed. Also a "Smart" person - this is people smart - can you read the room and communicate with people depending on how they feel on a particular day.
You'll also realise how important and valued your role is in the big picture and how this helps the whole company.
