Business Development and Sales Manager
Based in London with travel in the UK required
NewGen Bikes was born from a desire to bring a fresh look to electric bikes. We believe that e-bikes shouldn’t be boring and that only strong design, quality and style can drive the change of consumer behaviour and the shift to electric transportation.
Supporting such a step change in consumer behaviour is certainly not easy but with a team full of ambition and talent we have risen to the challenge. As our community grows we are beginning to make a name for ourselves as a young British lifestyle brand with high quality bikes and customer service.
We are accelerating our expansion in the UK and are looking for our Sales and Business Development Manager to help lead the charge.

Map out the UK market, identify the right combination of retailers and sales representatives for our products, bring them over the line and support them on an ongoing basis
Make sure the product presentation, customer pricing, service, delivery and after sale across our sales partners is consistent and aligned with our brand across the country
Make our retailers feel part of the NewGen community! We are not just looking for resellers; we see our sales partners are an extension of our brand. Your role will be to turn them into real long term promoters for our brand and make them feel as a key part of the community
What we are looking for:
A self-starter looking to make an impact and who shares our ambition to transform the way people travel for good
Passion for quality consumer products and lifestyle brands, the outdoors and/or the bike culture
Being a natural when it comes to getting out there, bringing people on board through friendly and effective storytelling and getting deals over the line
