Technical Sales Advisor


Clacton on Sea, Essex - Travelling is required

Job Description:

The job
A Technical Sales Adviser is required for the UK’s leading provider of weather protection structures.

What is it all about?
Able Canopies transform outside space across the UK making it useable for schools, retail sites and hospitality areas. Our high-quality structures enhance school life by providing teaching, dining and socialising areas. Protection from the worst of our British weather and the harmful rays of the sun mean our canopies work hard all year round. We take pride in the quality of our service, the materials that we use and the relationships that we have with our customers. Being able to maintain those connections and develop your own will be a key part of this role. Because you will see projects through from initial enquiry, to survey, to agreement of the final order you must have good communication skills – both face to face with customers and colleagues and in written form to help with the design and pricing of projects. This makes for a varied and interesting job - the chance to work with customers and colleagues to design, manufacture and install weather protection that adds value wherever it is installed.

About Able Canopies
Able Canopies was founded 15 years ago and has grown each year to its current position as the UK’s leading canopy provider. Over that time, we have installed thousands of structures, meaning we really know what we are doing. Our reputation for service and quality is well established and this means we have significant repeat business from schools and contractors who have worked with us for many years. Our founder, Mark Wood is still involved in the company and many of the staff have been with the team for many years – making them experts in their field. This makes for a supportive and successful atmosphere where new team members can establish themselves quickly and be successful. This is a small, friendly company that punches above its weight by using efficient systems, technology and smart thinking.

Need to know more?
The variety in the role, (one day you will be on site measuring and surveying, the next you could be filling in important tender documents) means that it is an interesting and rewarding position. You will have the chance to be creative, solve problems and gain success through working as part of a multi-skilled team. There is a high level of support, training and guidance that you will receive from both internal and external sources. If you have the right adaptable attitude and are keen to learn, then this is a great role for you. Ideally you will have some construction sector experience and knowledge of tender documentation, but it is not essential.

Where are we based?
We are based in Clacton on Sea, Essex in an office/warehouse location. As part of this role you will be travelling to surveys across the South East so you will need to be organised to ensure you have the right resources for each call, and you plan and manage your time efficiently. The team at our Head Office will provide support to help you achieve this.

This is a great opportunity
This is an important role in our company and is one that you can truly make your own. You will only be limited by your own ambition. Become a product expert and build your own networks and relationship and you will be part of the Able story for many years. Concerned that you don’t know much about canopies? Don’t be. We can teach you everything that you need to know. A willing attitude is much more important than anything else.

You will need to have a full driving licence. You will also need to gain a CSCS card to enable you to visit construction sites and a DBS check to allow you to carry out surveys at schools and colleges. We will support you with these.

How to Apply:

To apply for this exciting role send your CV and a covering letter to If you seem like a good fit, we will invite you to attend an interview and to show you round.

The role comes with a competitive salary, annual bonus, company vehicle and company pension. Plus, one of the friendliest working environments you will have ever experienced.
