Branch Sales Managers are an essential part of the Travis Perkins branch team, working closely with the Branch Manager to develop a sales strategy which focuses on proactive development of existing customers, lapsed customers and how to attract new ones in order to maximise profitable sales. You will engage the branch colleagues in the execution of the plan in order to grow and bring additional sales value into the business whilst delivering our Doing What Matters strategy for both colleagues and customers at a local level through amazing operational effectiveness.  

What will I be doing?
No one day is the same as the next in TP branch life, but here are a few pointers:
  • Our success is built on strong relationships with our customers so it’s essential that you can engage and inspire the branch colleagues to support in executing the sales strategy and support the team being professional, friendly and enthusiastic, ensuring they know the part they need to play.
  • Understanding our local competition is key, this will enable you to harness opportunities and develop strong sales propositions which meet customer needs in order for us to be competitive in the local market. 
  • Build and maintain effective working relationships with customers to ensure ongoing profitability.
  • Liaise with suppliers to create local commercial plans which seek to create profitable sales
  • Safety is at the forefront of everything we do, your aim will be to ensure that all our colleagues and customers leave the Branch safely, by adhering to all stay safe policies and procedures.
  • You will be a key-holder, often opening or closing the branch
  • You will support the Assistant Branch Manager and Branch Manager in managing some  aspects of a Branch and business.
