Dog Rocks looks to appoint Head of Sales
As part of its plans for continued growth, Dog Rocks is looking to appoint a Head of Sales in the UK. It is a new role within the company.

"We are looking for a Head of Sales now and will assign them largely existing UK accounts," said Dog Rocks CEO Carina Evans. "If all goes to plan we will be looking for territory heads – i.e. HOS USA and HOS UK and HOS Europe, probably in March 2016.

"Our leading product Dog Rocks has generated a good deal of sales but more importantly its our relationship with buyers that we really value.  We exist to aid the pet parenting journey, to bring to market innovative, unique and where possible natural products that help to fulfil the joy and responsibility that owning a pet brings. If we can do more work with existing accounts then we are onto a good thing.

'As we have grown we are nowadays asked for and presented with a number of products that fit our bill, (a recent example is the Torus Watering System). That said, however, we must as a first stage, capitiise on the products that are already in our stable and the accounts we already service. We want to pay back their faith in us by generating more income all round."

The successful candidate will concentrate on existing accounts and will farm relationships the company has already. They will also be expected to gather new business. 

"As we bring new products to market we value excellent customer care with frictionless delivery and we have a really empowered and engaged team," added Carina. "This feeds through to our customers and we want to engage further with that customer so that we can play an important part of the pet service and product industry. 

"We are proud of where we are but know we can improve and the various roles advertised on our website are all part of that journey.

"The values we hold dear should be demonstrated by the new Head of Sales. To name a few, we value honesty, integrity, creativity, energy, flexibility, problem solving and the desire to improve. These values are core to our business and the service we provide and so need to be core to any new member of our team."
