Key activity will include:

  • Developing opportunities in UK, using your knowledge to identify issues and create solutions, to increase business growth and market presence in the water treatment industry

Working closely with other sales managers and assisting project managers / engineers in bid preparation, execution and hand over processes, you will collaborate to ensure regional growth strategies are achieved and, whether at customer meetings or conferences and trade shows, we’ll look to you to consistently promote SUEZ’s services and capabilities.
