Commercial Sales & Management Programme
‘Aspire’ is a two year, fast-paced, jam packed programme focused on finding bright sparks and developing them into future leaders of our business.
We’ll immerse you into every aspect of CEF life from day-to-day operations right through to manufacturing, all the while preparing you for a role in management.
Time spent away from home will be required (not to mention great fun!). You’ll travel throughout the UK, meeting new and exciting people and attending regular training courses.
Career progression is our primary objective and promoting from within is one of our core values. People development is high on our agenda and we’ll nurture your talent to bring out the very best in you.
Course content will include:
- Day to Day Operations
- Customer Service Excellence
- Commercial Business Training
- Product Knowledge Training
- Professional Sales Training
- Management Training
- Human Resources
- Anti-bribery and Company Ethics
- Electrical Contractor (Three Month Placement)
- IT and Marketing
With such a variety of content covered on the course, there’ll never be a dull day. We’ve structured the course so you’ll gain and develop the essential skills required to reach the top.
We’ll also give you the opportunity to participate in the EDA (Electrical Distributors Association) product knowledge modules. How great would that be to achieve a recognised City and Guilds qualification along the way? It’s just another perk to the job!
Let’s talk long term…
On successful completion of the programme, you’ll go on to your first sales management role as an Account Manager (celebratory dance - woohoo!).
This is just the beginning of a fast paced and rewarding career with CEF. From there you will then have the opportunity to progress to a Branch Manager role where you can expect to receive an average salary of... (drum roll please) £48K. Our top performers achieve in excess of a whopping £80K plus a company car to the value of £50K.
Now that’s something to strive for!
What do you need?
There’s no doubt about it, a career with CEF requires 100% commitment, dedication and hard work; bags of initiative and a real desire to succeed. But for the right bright spark, the rewards are there by the bucket full.
Does this sound like you?
You’ll also have the following minimum qualification: Bachelor of Honours Degree (any discipline), minimum 2.2 and a full UK driving license. Do you tick all these boxes? Yes? Well then you’re just what we’re looking for!
- Competitive salary
- Yearly bonus
- Fully expensed company car
- Tailored development plan
