Job Description

Due to continued expansion of its global Sales and Aftersales network, Radical Sportscars is seeking an experienced Sales Operations Manager to join the UK-based Group Sales team.

Working as part of a close-knit team you will be responsible for assisting and expanding Radical’s current Sales and Aftersales markets, as well as identifying new areas for growth.

The successful applicant will be helping dealer partners meet their annual targets through the creation and regular review of tailored business and Marketing plans, structuring local pricing and specification around changing regional competition and emerging business opportunities. The Operations Manager identifies regional and global trends, reporting back to the Global Sales Director to help shape Radical’s business strategy, whilst managing the resources of dealer partners to maximise sales of cars and parts, technical resources and grid entries in Radical’s international racing championships.
