The international polymer markets provide excellent growth potential for our business. A new regionally focused sales and marketing approach and the ongoing expansion of our international manufacturing capacities leave us ideally positioned to capture further market share. That’s where you come in. Are you a key account professional who knows how to close successful deals in the chemical industry? Do you have drive and commitment? Are your sights set on realising your true potential? This is your chance: make your mark by shaping the commercial success of our polymers business in Northern Europe.
You will be responsible for the A to Z of sales development and the commercial success of our polymers sales in the region. The goal will be to position Sasol as a leading supplier of commodity polyethylene in the flexible packaging industry. Active relationship management will be an integral part of your role. Maintaining a keen presence, you will nurture and develop business relationships with key accounts and systematically establish new contacts with key customers. Identifying and embracing opportunities – this is the motto that you’ll consistently pursue. You’ll build the foundations for this by carrying out well-founded market and competition analysis, and through proactive exchanges with clients and colleagues. With strategic vision and tactical nouse, you’ll succeed in gaining new business that takes us forward sustainably. You’ll develop convincing value propositions, sales materials and campaigns, and actively support customers in succeeding with our products. Furthermore, after contracts have been signed you’ll always stay “on the ball” and ensure that customers are completely satisfied with our products and services. You’ll conclude price and volume agreements, compile demand forecasts and ensure that orders are processed reliably in close coordination with Supply Chain, Operations and Technical Services. And should there happen to be any problems, you’ll first find a quick solution for our customers and secondly, ensure that the cause is found and permanently rectified. You can be based at any of our Northern European offices, preferably in Hamburg.
