Hey there! We're Australia's #1 online wholesale food marketplace. FoodByUs connects hundreds of suppliers to restaurants, cafes, caterers, hotels, bars and other foodservice businesses. We’re a one-stop shop that allows any hospitality business to order all the wholesale supplies they need. Our founders built and sold Menulog, and we’re looking to make FoodByUs as successful.
This role is designed to progress along a defined professional sales career path. It is a fantastic start not only in learning how to sell but also to earn industry-leading commissions along the way.
As a Sales Development Representative you will contact leads over the phone and explain the FoodByUs product – all with the goal of booking an in-person appointment for one of our experienced sales team to visit in person and complete the sale. We want venues to order all their food and beverages through FoodByUs and this journey starts with you.
Within 3 – 6 months you can progress to become a Business Development Executive.
As a Business Development Executive, you will do a blend of over-the-phone sales mixed with field-based selling to your very own accounts. From day one we will begin training you to be a Business Development Executive, and how quickly advance is up to you.
Ultimately there is potential to become a Business Development Manager, looking after our biggest and best accounts.
The most important thing to know about FoodByUs is that our operations and training are second to none. We are a fun-loving start up but we also know how to get results - that is why we're the market leader. You will be supported by a very strong training program within the sales team, as well as help from marketing and operations – so you’ll always have help and guidance.
This is an entry level position, experience within the food industry is not required - although it certainly can help.
There are just 2 things you need to succeed at FoodByUs beyond anything else: (1) you are independent and can own your own work, and (2) you are highly motivated and passionate about your work.
You’ll also need to learn quickly, be an excellent communicator and know how to build a quick relationship with people – especially over the phone.
To succeed in this role (and more importantly to enjoy it!) you'll need the following attributes:
The team here are experienced, motivated, friendly and hard-working and you will love working with such passionate people. We guarantee you’ll be pushed hard but will love it.
