Based in Sowerby Bridge, West Yorkshire, Abram Pulman & Sons Ltd (Est 1838) are a Steel Stockholder and Processor supplying steel products across the whole of the Yorkshire and Lancashire areas, where an exciting opportunity has arisen to join our busy sales office and become part of the successful Pulmans team.
We stock an impressive range of over 2000 tonnes of steel products all from one site, and with an array of state-of-the-art machinery we can offer a range of processes including sawing, HD plasma and oxy gas profile cutting, as well as having a machining department for customers who need extra work carried out on their material, and with our own dedicated transport fleet we have control over all our deliveries helping us maintain our strong customer service focus.
We are looking for a hard-working, self- motivated individual who must be able to mix easily with others and be prepared to integrate into our lively, hectic and often challenging working environment.
The role is an internal profile sales role which will include handling customers enquiries, by phone, e-mail or in person, confirming stock availability and processing lead times, liaising with other departments to ensure our customers’ requirements are exceeded, as well as resolving customer problems should they arise, but most importantly the role revolves around selling steel and contributing to the team effort of surpassing our monthly sales targets.
Working under your own initiative will be vital, because as well as helping identify the best way to help the team, being proactive to create opportunities to supply steel to our current and potential customers is an important part of the role.
The successful applicant will ideally already have good product knowledge with the ability to read and understand customer drawings. Some machining experience would be advantageous but not essential. Full training on our Profit stock system and sigma nest profiling system will be given.
