The role is UK centric currently in terms of market, and you will be an integral part of the ongoing development of their go-to-market strategy, identifying market opportunities, arranging meetings with technical specialists at target organisations with the purpose of winning contracts for the provision of rail components. You will contribute and deliver a growth plan, and work closely alongside the in-house engineering team to assist with product development, utilising market knowledge to grow existing accounts and bring new products to market.
