We have a vacancy for a Component Sales Engineer to cover both existing accounts and to seek out new opportunities in the U.K. and Ireland. The role involves supporting existing clients as well as seeking out new opportunities for our range of radio frequency (RF) & microwave components and systems. Our customer base is varied and includes the MoD, defence primes, research and development establishments, satcom, space and leading industrial, scientific & medical organisations.
Full training will be provided and previous sales experience is not essential but candidates must be able to demonstrate excellent written and verbal communication skills, be enthusiastic and self-motivated and driven to succeed in identifying new opportunities as well as developing existing business relationships. Along with commercial acumen the role also requires an amount of RF & microwave technical knowledge.
Competitive salary & benefits are negotiable depending on your experience and what you can bring to Link Microtek.
Candidates should be UK residents and ideally possess a HNC/HND/degree in a STEM subject or be able to demonstrate knowledge of electronic, RF or microwave applications typically in an aerospace, defence or telecoms organisation. Some experience of surface mount components, coaxial components and amplifiers would be ideal but we provide full product training so in depth knowledge across each of those categories is not essential. The position suits technicians or engineers who are looking to move into a customer facing role or those already with experience in technical sales.
Link Microtek is a distributor and manufacturer of RF & microwave components, test instruments and systems. Based in Basingstoke we have a multi-million pound turnover and employ around 40 staff. We have been providing market leading solutions to a variety of high technology customers in the UK and around the world for over 25 years. We're big enough to have the stability and benefits of a much larger organisation, small enough to be dynamic and reward outstanding performance.
