Sales Manager


This is not just another Sales Manager role where you come in and manage an existing team of people who really don’t want input, where you need to work to an outdated sales model that some old guy in a terrible suit implemented 20 years ago. This is an opportunity to join a software company that is really going places. This is an opportunity to establish a completely new sales strategy, process and team. This is an opportunity to do it your way. We want someone who will bring in the best-in-class digital sales tools and help us smash our growth plans.


The Collect Group (TCG) provides software solutions for SMEs and Marketplace sellers (eg on eBay, Amazon, Etsy, N.O.T.H.S. etc) to help them process their orders more effectively. Our solutions help take the hassle out of sending parcels. We work with thousands of clients from our HQ in North Tyneside.
We have been trading for 10 years but our growth has really taken off over the last couple of years as the demand for parcels significantly increases. We believe that increase in demand is set to continue for many years to come so we are expanding our team to help us take advantage of that exciting market opportunity and deliver our exciting growth plans.

The Role

TCG is doing really well, but we want to take things to the next level. We want to establish a new sales function that will help us drive growth.
