In order to continue our growth strategy, Caledonian Optical are seeking to recruit an experienced Partnership Manager to cover Southeast England.
This is a business-to-business sales focussed role, ideally suited to a qualified Dispensing Optician or an established salesperson with extensive lens experience. The successful candidate will be responsible for managing sales of a broad portfolio of Digital Freeform lens products, providing services to independent opticians and other opportunities.
The main purpose of the role will be to create new opportunities and approach potential business customers with sole aim of winning new sales of products and services provided by Caledonian Optical. You will also maintain good relationships with existing customers to retain repeat business.
This is an exciting post that will be highly rewarded for a person who can work on their own initiative, developing and delivering sales plans to achieve targets for growth. Full support from the marketing team will be available to provide you with the sales tools required for success.
