Due to continued growth we are looking recruit a Technical Sales Assistant, to be the first point of contact for new enquiries, and customers visiting our retail showroom or welding supplies trade counter.

We work on a huge range of projects, from small walk in repairs to sculpture and ornamental ironwork, sheet metal fabrication including aluminium and stainless steel, and everything in between, from our well-equipped modern workshop and showroom in Andover. We are a small, friendly family run team, and no 2 days are the same!

This is a highly customer facing role, involving a wide range of tasks and responsibilities, including dealing with new enquiries, preparing quotes and estimates, serving customers in our showroom and trade counter, sending invoices, dealing with purchase orders and so on.

The role will involve reading technical drawings/RFQs and advising customers where required. As such, whilst full training will be given, some level of engineering or fabrication background is required. For example, the post would suit a recent graduate with a degree or similar qualification in engineering or a similar field.

We are looking for an extremely well organised person with a positive attitude, a good customer facing manner, highly proficient IT skills and some level of background knowledge of the engineering and fabrication sector.

Essential Skills

  • A background in engineering/fabrication
  • Positive, friendly manner with customers
  • Highly organised with attention to detail
  • Excellent IT skills

Desirable Skills

  • Knowledge of sheet metal fabrication including laser and press brake work
  • Knowledge of welding supplies and equipment
  • Sales experience in the fabrication sector
  • Experience in producing CAD drawings for manufacture

The role is based at our workshop in Andover and is a full time position, 9:00am - 5:00pm Monday - Friday with 30 minutes for lunch. Immediate start. Salary £22,000-£26,000 commensurate with experience, with company pension. There is potential for overtime and extra weekend shifts if desired by arrangement. 28 days paid holiday including bank holidays.

We also offer a staff and family/friends discount, and use of workshop facilities free of charge for personal projects outside of normal business hours amongst other benefits.

To apply, please email your CV to and a covering letter outlining your specific suitability for the job.
