We are a part of MAKEEN Energy, a worldwide organisation that incorporates several companies and world-leading brands. MAKEEN Energy employs more than 3,000 people across 6 continents and operates in over 140 countries.

To drive and expand our growth, we are looking for a dynamic and independent colleague with a passion for sales and for travelling in several regions of the world.

Your role

You will need to travel for visiting customers. As our new Sales Representative, your primary responsibilities will be to maintain, build and develop relationships with customers and to drive new business opportunities. Our customers are primarily gas companies, industrial gas companies, contractors, builders and developers.

Furthermore, it will also be your responsibility to:

  • Develop strategies for increasing existing business, creating new business, re-establishing lapsed accounts and achieving predetermined targets.
  • Introduce, promote and sell a range of specialist products.
  • Arrange appointments, visit sites, make presentations, deal and resolve customer queries as well as negotiate the closing of profitable sales, in line with the company policy and business plans.
  • Collect insight into customers’ businesses, identify opportunities, clarify needs, uncover problems, capture benefits and design and present customised solutions that create value.
  • Attend trade fairs, when relevant, in line with the company policy.
  • Gather information on competitor products, pricing and offers, and update the company CRM accordingly.
  • Participate in internal sales meetings and make transparent progress and workflow reports to the management.

Your profile

You will be part of a highly experienced and knowledgeable sales team based in Wavre – Belgium. It will be a great advantage if you have a basic engineering knowledge. However, you will have a strong back-office team to support you on both technical and administrative aspects.

We are looking for an independent, competitive self-starter who takes full responsibility for their own sales budget. At the same time, our sales team is characterised by transparency, teamwork and knowledge sharing.

We also prefer that you:

  • Understand the meaning and live by the MAKEEN Energy values.
  • Have an impressive track record in delivering on sales, profit and margin targets and are confident working with KPI’s.
  • Have excellent communication skills (French, English), both in speech and writing, and can communicate at all levels of an organisation. (Spanish would be an advantage)
  • Have advanced skills in interpersonal relationship management, so you can lead and manage a conversation, listen and understand customers’ motivations, create emotional engagement and earn the trust of others.
  • Understand and demonstrate professional sales presentations and negotiation techniques.
  • Have the business mind to make commercial decisions in line with the Senior Management Team.
  • Understand the meaning of a perfect cooperation with our back-office staff– when to delegate technical and administrative tasks and when to ask for their advice and bring them on customer visits.
  • Are professional, reliable, disciplined and loyal to both the company and your colleagues.
  • Are an experienced user of Microsoft Word, Excel and Power Point and computer literate in general.
  • Hold a driving license.

As a person, you are persistent, result-oriented and have a strong “we can” attitude. You like challenges and recover rapidly from rejections. You are curious, creative and constructive and good at problem solving.

We offer

As our new Sales Representative, you get an exciting and challenging job in an informal but professional working environment, characterised by dedication to the job, a friendly atmosphere, close teamwork and a good sense of humour. Our culture is based on freedom with responsibility, giving our employees the opportunity to take responsibility for their own tasks within certain frames and under very flexible work conditions (possibility of remote working).
