Project Researcher

The primary focus of the role is to assist the sales team by using online tools and making phone calls to investigate who is tendering for projects the business have quoted, with the goal of finding who the successful contractor is and passing this information on to an account manager to seek to secure an order for the works.

The concept behind this role is that it will also naturally lead to the candidate becoming an account manager, because with their own success they will discover new companies and projects of their own which could then be developed and managed as their own. So, it offers a good path of progression in the project sales team and one where the opportunity is there to make a mark, stand out and be rewarded for their success.
