About us

At PMI we’ve chosen to do something incredible. We’re totally transforming our business and building our future on smoke-free products.

With huge change comes huge opportunity. So, wherever you join us, you’ll enjoy the freedom to dream up and deliver better, brighter solutions and the space to move your career forward in endlessly different directions.

If you want to make a life-changing impact on Customers, there’s nowhere better to develop your career.

Your day to day

You will be the ‘Front Line’, for our sales driven, Field Based Team. You’ll work directly with Key Account Partners (e.g., Eurogarages) and other similar Accounts to educate, inform and support them in the sale of our portfolio of products.

As a frontline Brand Advocate for PMI, you’ll have excellent product knowledge and a real understanding of our Consumers. Your role will be to drive sales through collaboration and relationship building, enabling trade partners, to maximise their profitability through the successful sales of our products.

Gaining insights and a detailed understanding of your territory, you’ll work closely with your Area Activation Manager to create a bespoke sales strategy, initiating ideas to create awareness and sell our Brands.

As part of a results focused team, you will support, inspire each other, and share strategies for success.

About you

This is a Sales role, with a deeper purpose. We’re looking for someone who can motivate and encourage Store Staff and others to share our vision for a ‘Smoke Free Future’, and actively engage, coach and support them to be part of that vision.

To be truly successful, you’ll need to be tenacious, resilient and determined. You’ll thrive on the satisfaction of not only achieving, but exceeding targets…with rewards! You’ll be comfortable with the agility of a demanding and evolving business.

You’ll have experience in a Sales, or target driven environment, have the ability, to utilise supporting data and, be dedicated to keeping the Customer at the heart of your decision making.

You’ll enjoy being creative about your approach, with an entrepreneurial attitude to help build awareness for the brand.

Partnering with Key Account Businesses, you’ll need the emotional intelligence to nurture genuine relationships through a business lens.

You’ll preferably have experience in operating with similar accounts and ideally you can communicate in different languages (but this is not a requirement).

You’ll have a clean and valid driving licence (and will have held one for at least 12 months) and you are willing to travel and cover a large territory or, be open to locating to the area.
