Job Role

Why be a Sales Manager at Muirhead?

First, you’ll need to understand what we do… We’ve been providing high quality and high-performance leather to customers for over 175 years.  We’re proud to be a long-standing manufacturer in the West of Scotland.  We work with many and varied customers and sectors including Mass Transit, Aviation, Upholstery Leather & Custom Projects.  We’ve worked on projects including the Royal Yacht Britannia and the Burj al-Arab; and worked with brands such as Ardee Coach Trim and Irish Rail. 

If professional development is high up your priority list, this is the place to be.  You’ll be given ownership of your market and will be supported to thrive, exceed expectations and deliver. 

So, what will you be doing?

You’ll be focusing on our Mass Transit sector which encompasses bus, coach and rail clients.  You’ll travel extensively, meeting with clients at their sites to gain a sound understanding of how we can support their success.  Day-to-day, you’ll spend time on the following:

  • Meeting and developing relationships with transport designers, seat makers, vehicle builders and operators
  • Managing existing accounts ensuring continuity of service, and working on new business development
  • Representing Muirhead at regional exhibitions
  • Updating and maintaining our CRM system
  • Working with internal stakeholders from areas such as QA, Technical, Sales Support, Management and Logistics to deliver projects on time and in full


Skills, Experience & Qualifications

Our Sales Managers work to build close relationships with our existing clients, and those who we’d love to work with; then maintain those over time to ensure that we are providing the best products and service for their programmes and projects.  You’ll be a brand ambassador, empowered and able to showcase everything that makes us proud to be Muirhead.  We’ll arm you with the technology, equipment and sector knowledge to achieve great things.  It’s a busy role, and every client or potential client must be looked after with care, so you’ll need to be a go-getter. 


Our people are at the heart of our business, so you’ll be rewarded well for what you do.  A generous fixed salary – we’re all about delivering quality, so commission isn’t our style.  You’ll also benefit from 32 days’ holiday entitlement, health insurance, life assurance, 5% employer pension contributions, discounted gym membership – and the list goes on.  We’ve also been awarded eight consecutive Gold awards by RoSPA – demonstrating our commitment to, and success in, promoting and ensuring health and safety on site. 

We can see great things ahead, and we want you to be part of that…  Get in touch to discuss.
