Inside Sales Administrator

Ark Consultants UK Ltd

Ark Consultants UK Ltd is a small but expanding business selling outdoor sports equipment based just north of Lancaster. We are in a beautiful rural setting; the sheep are very local, the kettle is always on, pets (and their owners) are always welcome for a visit.

We are looking to fill a full-time sales administrator role. The desired applicant will be someone comfortable interacting with the field sales team, as well as being happy building relationships with our trade customers at a distance over the phone. Systems in the company are all modern cloud-based so the ability to learn new computer programmes is important.

Having an interest in our product groups would be beneficial and likely make things a little easier to understand and process through. The business is expanding into Germany so language speaking skills would be a strong bonus.
