As a Key Account Sales Executive for Clarks you will be asked to create great relationships with our ‘Key Account’ businesses, plan assortments, forecast and market but most of all you will be a representative of the Clarks brand.
A Bit About the Role
Responsible for setting up each key account in an organized process and managing the business in a way that allows greater efficiency and effectiveness.
A Bit About You
The work you’ll do here will help determine company sales strategy. It’s serious stuff. That’s why we’re looking for at least five years spent in retail buying or in sales including experience in buying operations and in the footwear/fashion industry.
Just as important as your backstory, though, is your attitude. To keep pace, you’ll have to be agile in your thinking, a world class communicator, build great relationships, and understand retail math. You’ll also have great passion for your accounts. You’ll want to sell them great shoes because our product is better for them and the business.
Clarks, based in Somerset, England, we.ve been at the forefront of innovative shoemaking since its foundation in 1825, when brothers James and Cyrus Clark made a slipper from sheepskin off-cuts. At the time it was ground-breaking; a combination of invention and craftsmanship that’s remained at the heart of what the brand does now. In our archive of more than 22,000 pairs are shoes that have sparked revolutions and defined generations.
From the original Desert Boot (first designed by Nathan Clark and launched in 1950) to the iconic Wallabee, each design has an instantly recognisable signature—a unique combination of craftsmanship and innovation that make it unmistakably ours. We’re a global business operating retail, wholesale, franchise and online channels in over 100 markets worldwide supported by nearly 10,000 employees across the world.
Life with us
Over 46 million pairs of Clarks shoes are sold globally. That makes us a £1.5 billion business and a truly worldwide brand. We now have some 12,000 employees across 75 different countries – everywhere from Europe to the Americas. Despite being the world’s leading global casual footwear brand, we’re still majority owned by the Clark family and based in Street, Somerset – where the Clarks business began. Street is the nerve centre of our business, driving growth and the whole Clarks success story.
We’ve already told you about the degree of flexibility you’ll enjoy as a valued addition to our business – but that’s just the start. As well as development opportunities, pension and a competitive salary, you’ll also enjoy a variety of other benefits. These range from 25 days’ holiday (plus bank holidays) to discounted healthcare. And, as everyone loves new shoes, you’ll also get a very healthy discount on our products.
We love hearing from great people
