Sales Excellence Specialist
North Island, NZ
Permanent Full Time

Our Sales function has recently gone through a huge transition, pivoting on how we communicate and engage with our customers, and working to become a more agile and insights-focused function.


Are you passionate about creating performing and customer-centric sales teams? Does coaching others to reach their full potential excite you? Then we want to talk to you! We’re looking for people who enjoy coaching and bringing out the best in their teams. As our Sales Excellence Specialist, you will work with our Sales Executives across the Manuwatu/Whanganui through to Wellington regions to support and coach them in best understanding our customers' sales needs, and how to cater to them.


We have a vision for the future. It’s an exciting one! And we need talented people to bring it to life. Here at Lion, we want to make doing business with us, as easy as possible. To do this, we take the time to get to know our customers, building genuine relationships that become trusted partnerships.


Ideally, we’re looking for people with the following:

  • Customer and consumer obsessed, you’ll be driven to build effective and strong customer partnerships
  • Sales experience – ideally FMCG but not limited to
  • Ability to clearly demonstrate your leadership/coaching experience – this could look like coaching a sports team through to a team lead position within the corporate world
  • Accountability. You keep your promises and deliver on your commitments
  • A full, clean drivers licence, as well as the ability to work in Aotearoa on a perm basis


At Lion, we choose to be a leader in driving inclusion, diversity and gender parity. We have an ambitious goal to reach at least 40% representation of both men and women in all teams in all areas of the business. Are you hesitating to apply because you don’t think you meet all of the criteria?


If you believe you are aligned with our values at Lion, we’d encourage you to still click on that apply button so we can explore your unique skill set and the value you could add to one of our teams.

Flexibility at Lion 
When it comes to flexibility, we understand that one size doesn’t fit all. Our flexible working program, LionFlex enables us to work in ways that support our lifestyle to help us balance our career with the other important things in life.
