  • Working and liaising with colleagues, trading partners and customers throughout Europe, all with different contractual and specific equipment requirements.
  • Producing quotations and documentation

Although this is an office-based position in York, you must also be able to attend meetings with colleagues and customers when required in Europe.

The Directors of the business are approachable and highly expert in their field and although this is a global operation, everyone knows everyone personally and you do get the opportunity to meet your counterparts from all the different locations which enables you to work cohesively as a tight, friendly team all pulling towards the same common goal.
