Our clients are great – we wouldn’t work with them otherwise! So, it’s about time we started shouting about them.
We’ve already introduced you to one of our clients, Edmundson Electrical, but we want to make sure that you’re familiar with the rest of the businesses we recruit on behalf of.
Next up, we’re talking about UK Electric. Established in 1993, they describe themselves as being “a powerful mix of technical sales and distribution companies”. They have a huge portfolio of stock, and can supply a vast range of HVAC parts and components from a domestic heating or cooling appliance spare to a fully packaged commercial and industrial automation solution. However, there’s much more to be said than this!
If you’re an experienced salesperson or manager within heating/ventilation/plumbing /industrial parts, supplies or spares, then you’ll definitely want to take a look at the top 8 reasons you should be working for UK Electric.
It’s simple. People want to buy quality products and they want to receive quality service. UK Electric pride themselves on providing both. This is what their customers return for time and time again. With big names such as Honeywell, Baxi, Worcester, Siemens and GE in their inventory, it’s easy to see why. If you were to join them, you’d be involved in the sale of products that you would be genuinely proud to sell.
Yes, the market is niche, but that’s not a bad thing! Your experience and expertise will be put to good use; they’ll give you the opportunity to really show them what you can do. Not only this, but demand is high; despite the niche market, not many of their competitors sell such a broad range of products.
This is a big selling point for a lot of their employees. UK Electric work in line with their “highly decentralised management philosophy”. This means that every branch of their respective businesses is run differently to match the needs of the local clientele with no red tape from above. This also allows more autonomy and flexibility for their employees. If you were to secure or progress to a management role, you would be in full control of how your branch was run.
UK Electric has a strong reputation, thanks to the strong business relationships they build with their customers and the level of service they provide. Their specialism means that they are well known within the industry and a good reputation does wonders when it comes to making a sale! Working for UK Electric would mean that you’d have the power and support of a strong, reputable name behind you.
Lots of sales roles out there offer ‘bonus potential’, but this can be hard to achieve and supplements a comparably low salary. However, UK Electric (and their associated businesses) do things differently. On joining the group, you will be offered a competitive starting salary depending on your experience. On top of this, you will then receive a share of the company’s profits as an annual lump sum bonus. The harder you work, the more you earn!
The company continues to grow through acquisitions, as such, there is always scope for career development within the group. The company is as ambitious as you are and as the company grows, so does your bonus!
You won’t find yourself stuck in a rut with UK Electric. They value their employees and believe in recognising hard work. They will support your professional development and help you move forward on your career path.
UK Electric are part of the Newbury Investments group who boast a £550 million turnover. Other businesses in the group include Acutest, Decco, Deta, Norbain, Ryness, Stearn and UK Cables. Once you have your foot in the door, you have so many options available to you. Whether you choose to progress with one business or move throughout the group, you’ll never find yourself stuck in a rut!
These are just some of the reasons that make UK Electric a great place to work and the perfect place to develop your career.
