SPM Instrument in Strängnäs, Sweden, develops, produces, markets, and sells advanced equipment for condition monitoring of industrial equipment. As one of the leading players in our field, we are represented in about sixty export markets worldwide. With a stronger product portfolio than ever and with customers in a wide range of industries, we are in an expansive phase. Together with our subsidiaries and distributors, we have a strong focus on intensified marketing and increased sales of our unique products.

Are you ready to take on responsibility for reaching our ambitious sales targets as a Global Area Sales Manager?

What you will be part of

We offer an inspiring and challenging position in a company with an innovative spirit and global success for a person with a genuine business interest who likes building and developing networks and relationships.

You can look forward to a stimulating and varied career with us, enabling you to develop your sales drive and interest in technology in an international context. You will be based out of our head office in Strängnäs (45 minutes by train from Stockholm); however, you will spend a significant part of your time in the field where you support and encourage our subsidiaries and distributors to be active and do the right things in their respective markets. When traveling to destinations in your markets, you will be taking part in customer visits with the local sales force, conducting product training, participating in trade shows, and evaluating distributors.

About the position

As Global Area Sales Manager, you will be joining our team of sales leaders and coordinators, working alongside our marketing, SPM Academy training and consulting services, and technical sales development resources.

You will use your business sense and analytical mindset to identify and pursue new opportunities to develop our business further. You will ensure that our business strategy is implemented, business plans executed, and targets met. Using your strong strategic and tactical sales management skills, you initiate, plan, and follow up the sales activities and marketing efforts required to achieve budget and sales goals. 

Your profile

To be successful in this role, you will need a good technical understanding – through your educational background or previous work experience – that will enable you to understand our business and use your insights actively to grow our markets.

We are looking for a team-oriented person with drive, enthusiasm, and a positive attitude towards working together in the company's best interests. You will plan your own time and activities, so good strategic planning skills are vital. You are used to international travel and are comfortable conversing both technically and commercially in English. Additional language skills are a bonus.

Are you our future workmate on the SPM export sales team? If you are a team player, open to working in markets outside Sweden, with an open mind to different cultures and different ways of working – sometimes entailing challenging situations – and you’re not afraid to take on a variety of tasks, including giving presentations, you might be the ideal candidate to develop and drive our sales network forward. An interest in sales, technology, electronics, or pedagogy can make you the perfect fit to join our team. We’re a merry team enjoying our work, all the while taking our mission seriously, and we all look forward to working with you!

Are you the one we are looking for?
