  • Higher Access is the UKs leading specialist supplier of tracked access platforms - otherwise known as spider lifts – from 11m right up to 42m!

    We pride ourselves on our unrivalled customer service, and great people are at the heart of what we do. We work in many interesting industries, so no one day is the same as the next – football stadiums, constructions sites, theatres and media to name a few! A positive, can-do attitude and a willingness to go the extra mile are rewarded with training and development opportunities, and an excellent salary and benefits package.

    Join us and you’ll be part of an exciting, fast-paced and growing company.

    We currently have an opportunity for an Account Manager to join us to enhance the revenues of Higher Access products through both existing and new customers covering the South of England.

    Within the role you will be required to retain and develop the relationships with our key accounts and create new business opportunities. We are keen to increase customer awareness, numbers and the benefits of customers using Higher Access.

    The role requires a tenacious, strategic and proactive approach with a board knowledge of the construction or plant hire sectors. We would consider training and developing a suitable applicant looking to make this move in to a field role. Although predominantly an account management role, you will be required to develop new business by assisting with and delivering proposals and presentations to win preferred supplier status with targeted customers.

    Candidates for this role must be able to demonstrate relationship management and sales skills. You should have the ability to build long lasting, mutually beneficial relationships and a confident nature when presenting. We are looking for a candidate who is eager to develop their knowledge of the organisation along with its products so that you can confidently present practical solutions to nurture long lasting sustainable business relationships. The successful applicant will require a hunger and desire for personnel development aligned with the overall objectives and needs of the business. Intermediate level IT literacy is required along with the ability to manage your time effectively by setting clear objectives.
