Technical Slales Engineer

Date: Aug 14, 2019

Location: Wednesbury, WLL, GB

Company: MSC Industrial Supply

Built to Make You Better.
Serving customer and community starts with the very best people doing their very best work. That is precisely what we have here at MSC. If you are inspired to learn, expand your circle, take risks, and succeed as a team, you can build a better career at MSC.



Technical Sales Engineer, £38k - £40k base salary + generous commission + company car and benefits

The manufacturing world appears to be split into two, those who love MSC and those who haven’t tried us yet!  We exist to drive manufacturing excellence in the UK, and we do that by bringing different thinking to new problems.  As technology advances and skills and experience in the workplace struggle to keep pace, our customers come to rely on suppliers who can help bridge this gap.


MSC Industrial Supply, whilst part of a very successful large global organisation, is one of the UK’s best kept secrets within the industrial consumable distribution market.  We supply over 80,000 different industrial consumable products to the manufacturing sector and has unparalleled service capability.  This includes the best nationwide metalworking range and service offer there is.

We are enjoying consistent sales growth and have a clear strategy to continue to significantly increase business from existing and new customers.  Our challenge is to further build on MSCs brand awareness for range and service, so as we become the first-choice engineering solution and the UK’s preferred National distributor of industrial components.

To support this ambition, we are looking for a Technical Sales Engineer to cover the Midlands and to join us on our exciting journey and to directly contribute to the continued success of the organisation


You will have a proven track record in Engineering Sales together with

  • Metalworking Industry experience, in particular, Indexable Carbide & solid tools both in application and troubleshooting
  • CNC operational / programming experience
  • Engineering qualification



However, the right person will love the real challenge the role presents….and that is making difficult commercial judgements whilst bringing your exceptional engineering capability to customers:


  • Do you invest time to support the winning of one big potential customer, or do you spend your time building credibility with ten medium-sized customer opportunities?
  • Do you support the delivery of an existing customer cost-saving or spend more time influencing more customers to try and bring more revenue to MSC?


If these challenging questions make you curious to find out more, and you have an appetite to learn and be pushed to deliver in ways you haven’t thought of before then please come and speak to us….


Benefits play an important role in your choice of an employer, which is why MSC offers a generous package, including (amongst others):

Holiday entitlement of 25 days per year, plus public holidays, pension scheme – company matched up to 10% of annual salary, private medical insurance, life insurance – 6x annual salary, associate incentives and discounts, free parking, Cycle to Work scheme and discounted health cash plan.

We hold a “1 Star Best Companies” accreditation for engagement as well as a member of "The Institute of Customer Services"
