Commercial Director

Geotechnical Observations is looking to appoint someone to our Board of Directors who will be directly responsible for generating and delivering sales. This person will work alongside the other Directors including those responsible for Operations, Finance and Human Resources. It is likely, but not essential, that candidates will already be working on the Board of Directors within another company and are therefore familiar with the challenges and the rewards that a job of this kind brings. Geotechnical Observations is a well-managed, independent company with no debts and a strong balance sheet, which provides an ideal platform for growth.

The key attributes that will be required are:

•                     You must have a thorough understanding of geotechnical instrumentation and the value that monitoring can bring to construction projects, together with detailed knowledge the costs involved with delivering industry leading monitoring solutions.

•                     You must have a track record of building and maintaining an effective sales pipeline, writing winning bids and ‘nailing’ sales. In addition you will be able to demonstrate a passion for sales that aligns well with our mission and values.

•                     You must be capable of working with the other Directors to help shape the strategy and direction of the company and have a passion to capitalise on new revenue opportunities.   

This role will be demanding and challenging, but for the successful candidate your personal success will translate directly into the success of the company. The post will be based at our office in Weybridge, Surrey, working predominantly in the region around London, with frequent travel to potential client sites across the UK.

Note – Applicants must have full unrestricted rights to work in the UK.
