The Company

Our client is a multinational company who specialise in Water Treatment chemicals, pre-treatment and dosing equipment sales, supply, and servicing.

Their products and services are provided nationally with teams spread across the country.

Their customers are generally large Industrial/Commercial customers. e.g. Dairy, Food & Beverage, Healthcare & Pharmaceuticals, Wood Processing, Brewing & Distilling and all industry sectors that utilise steam and cooling water in their processes.

The Role

Tech Support & Admin: As the role title suggests, to start with you will largely be doing technical support and admin type work for the Water Treatment division of this company, who are an experienced and tight team.
You will become the first port of call when a customer calls the company office. For example we have an order X, Y, Z, can you price it? Or maybe, can you send us some product sheets? etc.

You will liaise with both labs, making sure lab results are received on time, and also with other product suppliers too.
Once you have got your feet under the desk and warmed up i.e. you understand the business and applications a bit more, you will be quickly moved into a more tech support focused role, so answering Water Treatment questions, or diverting that customer to the right person in your team.

On-going Training:
As part of your training you will spend some time in the field with the Water Treatment Technician and Sales Reps so that you understand the basics of water treatment and chemical applications and trial whether this could be your next role in the company.

The Fork in the Road:
After you have gained a reasonable amount of experience, say 2 to 3 years, the company already have in mind three possible internal progression pathways for you. With each of these you will have increasing responsibility, personal development, job satisfaction, and more dollars in your pocket to go with it.

Here are the three prongs of the fork, just to give you an idea of how your career could progress.
A) Procurement
B) Product, Logistics, & Pricing Coordination
C) Field Service Technician role leading into a combined Technician AND Sales role.

So there you go. If these sound like possible career pathways for you and you have the qualifications and experience below then do get in touch!
