Job Description

To set the scene, we are working with a highly innovative engineering firm to secure a Commercial Manager to deliver sustainable growth for one of their best performing business units. They seek someone with comparable experience from an engineering, enery or construction background.

Rather than tell you about a new job, we instead want to pose you some questions. If you like the way these questions make you feel about yourself and how they generate excitement for your future career, then perhaps we should talk…

Developing success in others

How excited do you get by helping others around you succeed?
What stories do you have to demonstrate your skills in this regard?
What have others gone on to do as a result of your efforts to enable them?
How do you accelerate their career development?
What's in it for you?

Growing business

How competent do you feel you are at developing new business?
Can you demonstrate your success in this regard?
If you were asked to predict your future performance how would you go about doing it?
What are your proudest achievements when it comes to growing business?
What is your methodology for growing business?


What does commerciality mean to you?
How does the contract process make you feel?
How do you feel about pitching for tenders?
If you like this side of business generation, why?
What makes you better than your competitors?
What wins do you reflect on with pride in this regard?

Food for thought? How do these questions make you feel about the value you add? What would others say about your abilities in this regard?

So many questions... Our client needs a curious person. A person driven to find out about their customers. Driven to win. Driven to take people with them on the winning journey.

Make no mistake, winning is often tough and soul-searching work, and this will no doubt be the case with this role. But therein lies the reward. The organisation has success hardwired into it's DNA. They want you to succeed, but you need to want it too.

If you have responded well to these questions, are working in commercial role within the engineering/enery/construction sector and keen to grab the next challenge by the horns, send your CV. We will then be keen to hear your responses to the questions posed above…
