Closing Date:

Arkonik, the world’s leading Land Rover Defender specialists, are looking for an exceptional Sales Executive. 

The role is an exciting one which offers a brilliant opportunity for the right person.  On offer is a very competitive salary, uncapped commission potential but most importantly the chance to become a pivotal part of an exciting, versatile and dignified team.

At Arkonik, we pride ourselves in always doing our very best at what we do. We carefully strive for perfection every day, and so require the very best. We need someone who can effectively and consistently represent our Company, and product, at a level above and beyond the expectation of our Clientele. Someone who can accurately reflect the high quality of the vehicles that we sell, someone who can embrace and communicate our ethics and values.

Applicants will need to be quietly confident and able to understand and empathise with the needs of our clients; clients who are often thousands of miles away and who may, having waited upwards of 12 months to take delivery, never see their vehicle until the day it arrives with them. The applicant’s role includes guiding potential clients as well as aiding existing ones, undertaking direct sales over the phone, and most importantly thinking innovatively to find strategies that will support our steady growth.

We are looking for someone who can be as passionate about our fantastic product as we are. Any serious applicant will be able to clearly describe what value they can bring to our business.

This opportunity is a rare one in which the successful candidate will be given immediate responsibilities, freedom to try new ideas and a chance at becoming part of a very special business. The individual should have a strong ‘will to win’, and should not bring anything other than their very best to the table.
