Work With Us

Sales and Marketing Position

 

We are looking for a focused, enthusiastic and organised individual to join us at Paxton Chocolate, an independent chocolate business based in Kemp Town, Brighton.  While a degree in Sales/Marketing is not required it would be preferable, however we would look at applicants from other disciplines and backgrounds if they feel their interests and skills are translatable.

 

You will be working closely with the director/head chocolatier, promoting and selling our beautiful range of chocolates & chocolate drinks, starting 3 days a week (approximately 24 hours/week), and building up to a full time position from September as we get into the Christmas sales season. The role will involve sales calls and following up leads as well as leading generation and marketing mail outs, including all the necessary administration and information logging. The role will also include being heavily involved in trade shows and pop up shops and therefore any successful candidate will need the flexibility to work evenings and weekends when required. We are always open to new ways of selling the products so we would actively encourage any successful candidate to pitch their ideas.

 

Ideally applicants will have an interest in chocolate and the food industry. As this is a training position no formal experience is required. Essentially we are looking for someone who is passionate about what they do and can grow with us. We would be looking for the successful candidate to start ASAP, but understand that their dissertation, exams etc. may limit the number of hours they can work initially until they graduate.

 

 Pay £7.50 p/h plus performance related bonuses.
