To ensure our first class service continues, we offer excellent career support and development for all our employees and believe this positive approach ultimately drives success through to our customers. Are you looking for a new challenge?

    Due to further successful growth, we are now looking to recruit a motivated and professional Area Sales Manager to join our regional team covering our established West of Scotland territory. In this challenging yet rewarding role, you will support our expansion by actively promoting the hire of trench shoring equipment and other Groundforce products and services to a portfolio of existing and new clients, in order to achieve budgeted levels of revenue.

    You will work closely with the internal sales, hire operations and customer support services in order to ensure the customers’ requirements are met to the highest standard. This is a client focused position and you will work in a professional manner whilst adhering to company policies and procedures at all times.

    We have exciting times ahead with attainable expansion plans and a clear vision of where we are heading, we are now seeking an individual with their own high expectations and ambitions who can come on our journey and help us make it all happen.

    What we’re looking for :


    • This position would suit a highly driven individual who has solid knowledge of the construction sector and who has experience in a sales environment. We are looking for someone who can identify opportunities, present information clearly, pitch solutions and close sales. You will have naturally excellent communication skills coupled with a customer oriented approach which are prerequisites.

    • Ideally our successful candidate will be located in the West of Scotland Area and will hold an Engineering qualification (Civil or other) and / or a business qualification to HNC / D level.

    • Experience within shoring, groundworks or construction would be advantageous for the role, though not essential. A proven track record in a technical solution sales role is essential however, as is a great attitude and desire to succeed.


    Groundforce has built a reputation as a first class market leader by developing six core business elements. Each division was formed to serve the construction industry by offering specialist solutions in shoring equipment, piling equipment, pipe stoppers, pressure testing, trenchless technology, temporary bridges and excavation training. A commitment to developing our vast product range means Groundforce’s customers can be certain of innovative products and a comprehensive service.
