Every Sales person has a vision.
Making the ultimate deal.
Our client believes that vision has no limit, which is why they have continuously been successful as they expanded into Africa, the Caribbean, Central America, and now China.
Today, as part of their continued vision and expansion into China, our client is inviting talented, experienced, driven Managing Directors who know an excellent opportunity when they see it to join them in their expansion, particularly those who are not afraid of taking those first steps into new terrain.
As Regional Managing Director of our regional operation in China, you will be responsible for creating vision and opportunity. You will be tasked with growing a brand and ensuring its performance across 4 centres with a total headcount in the region of 500 individuals. You will take your online media, call centre or recruitment experience and directly lead a team of Sales Director/GM individuals who will be charged with ensuring their individual centres perform to the utmost standards, and will position our client as the leader in the online media market for their sector in China.
Our client understands that Managing Directors can come from all backgrounds, and are open to applications from driven, successful MD’s with strong track records with start ups, expansions, difficult or challenging environments - people who have established themselves over at least 5 years at Senior Executive level. For those coming from a call centre, media, or recruitment background, you may find yourselves at home in the environment already established by our client, bringing your previous success at achieving targets, cross functional experience with all departments & multiple offices, understanding of international markets and ability to think strategically in a new environment to the absolute fore as a leader in your own right. Your MBA, BA or BSc in Business Management will be in line with key qualifications that our client looks for in candidates of this calibre.
You will have worked closely with your management team in the past to operate at the highest level of business professionalism, with key attention to interaction with the client and treating internal and external relationships with the utmost respect. You will have experience of reporting at board level, and you will have a keen sense of direct, fact based communication.
Previous experience in improving the profitability of a company or business unit will be in keeping with your remit to grow and fully deliver in this key expansion for our client.
We welcome applications from candidates who have previous experience of the Asian market place. Also, if you speak Mandarin in line with other key competencies, this would act as an advantage in your new work environment; however possession of Mandarin is not essential.
Determination, drive, ambition and absolute tenacity however, are.
• Provide leadership and direction for regional business operations
• Maintain full P&L responsibility for the company, and achieve or surpass sales and financial targets.
• Develop a strategic plan to grow the business in collaboration with the senior management team
• Establish performance goals which are aggressive, real and tied to overall company strategy and goals.
• Monitor departmental performance against performance goals to ensure that progress is being made and corrective action, if necessary, is taken.
• Manage a team of Sales Directors/General Managers.
• Represent the company in establishing and continuously growing relationships with business partners, customers and vendors.
• Attract, develop, motivate and retain staff, deploy them in an effective manner, and ensure effective succession planning is in place.
Excellent performance based bonus, with basic and additional incentives, including accommodation allowance, health insurance ( global) and sponsored visit home during the year.
Overall, our client wishes to meet with individuals genuinely enthused about a move to China, who would embrace working and living in one of the world’s most progressive and exciting markets.
While you may feel you have reached a pinnacle in your career, our client can illustrate there are always new visions, new ventures, new boundaries to cross.
