Experience we are looking for
You possess a minimum of 5 years of active sales experience in international markets, where you have engaged with aspects of wood valorization, production from timber factories, woodworking encompassing furniture, doors, windows, and related domains. You have a foundational understanding of core and support processes within manufacturing enterprises, as well as project management. Your proficiency in the English language enables effective communication. Proficiency in other foreign languages (Estonian, Russian, etc) would also be considered an advantageous asset for this role.
As an individual, you are a collaborative team player. You are characterized by an internal drive to see initiatives through from initiation to fruition as agreed upon. Your robust analytical thinking, capacity to envision the bigger picture, and adeptness in adapting to dynamic environments are noteworthy attributes. A rational and composed approach in high-pressure situations (such as managing delivery timelines or resolving complaints) defines your demeanor, whether within the organization or externally. You inherently excel in cultivating and maintaining relationships.
