Working as part of a national team, you will work closely with management in formulating and actioning sales plans and marketing activities. You will also attend relevant industry meetings, conferences, field days and seminars both locally and outside your region as required to both build networks, but also to stay engaged with industry. Applicants must be self-motivated and be able to work both independently, as well as part of a team. The role demands a confident and capable applicant, with excellent time management and communication skills and given the area to be covered by this position, time away from home base is a necessary and regular part of the role.

Ideally, applicants would hold relevant qualifications and/or experience in Agricultural Science / Agronomy and must have demonstrated understanding/experience in plant/soil nutrition. You will also have a strong demonstrated history in sales or have experience in a commercial role. Regardless, an understanding of broadacre, pasture and/or horticultural production systems will be critical.

A remuneration package will be negotiated based on experience and qualifications and there is genuine flexibility as to where the role can be based within the sales territory, dependent on experience and existing regional and relevant networks. Is this you or someone you know? If so, please submit your resume or call Nigel Crawley on 1300 380 701 for a confidential discussion
