  • Ability to pick up new systems – we use a CRM system and a sales system
  • Strong interpersonal skills and the ability to establish rapport with customers
  • Willingness to travel internationally and domestically with some long periods away.
  • Language skills an advantage but not essential
  • At least 2 years previous experience as an account/sales manager
  • Proven track record in sales, ideally export but not essential
  • Experience in the equestrian industry would be an advantage
