Will you be the new face of Eromesmarko in the UK ?
Vacancy: Sales Manager for Education Market
Eromesmarko is the leading and most innovative educational furnisher in the Netherlands with over 100 years of experience and more than 100 committed employees. Our values are reflected in all our designs and products, from a chair in a nursery to cabinet wall in a university with everything else in between for primary and secondary schools. Our focus is on sustainability, quality and innovation. We are proud of what we make and are constantly looking for ways to support and stimulate educational innovation. We do this with intelligent new insights and designs, by taking a different perspective and by doing things differently. Education is constantly evolving, so we consider it a challenge to offer the right concept for every educational vision.
For years, Eromesmarko has been successful with this approach in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany and now we also want to introduce our method to the UK market. Following positive experiences with pilot projects in the UK, we have recently opened a showroom in London, and in the coming years we want to gain a foothold in the Midlands and Southern Counties as well as the rest of the UK. We want to support and assist educational institutions to create flexible and modern furnishings that are a perfect match for the pupils and students of today and prepare them for the labour market of tomorrow.
Your Challenge and Role
To achieve our ambition, we are looking for a pioneer who will independently start building a solid network in England (Midlands area and Southern counties) expanding to the rest of the UK over time. You will be supported in this process from the Netherlands and you can also rely on the colleagues of our sister company, Nomique in Telford. As an Sales Manager for the Education Market, you are the face and the ambassador for Eromesmarko. Together with our interior architects, you will translate specific educational needs into an appropriate furnishing concept. You are responsible for building and expanding long-term relationships with dealers, educational institutions, (interior) architects, facility procurement agencies and educational consultants.
- Affinity with education and furnishing
- A motivated and driven professional with a commercial mindset
- Bachelor Degree level
- Minimum of 5 years relevant work experience
- Available Full-time
- Living in the Midlands or Southern counties
- Good communicator
We offer an attractive salary, complemented with excellent fringe benefits such as a company car and the opportunity to be part of a professional and evolving team. We also offer:
- A one-year contract with the prospect of permanent employment
- 28 days holiday and 13 additional ‘ADV’ days (reduction of working hours agreed upon in the collective labour agreement. A system in which you work more hours each week than stated in your contract. For example, you work 40 hours per week, while your contract states 38 hours. This means you accrue 2 ADV-hours per week. The extra hours worked can be taken as leave at another time).
- Training and work orientation period at our locations in Wijchen (Netherlands) and Frankfurt (Germany)
- Enthusiastic colleagues
- Team training and relevant courses and training programmes

We are part of the Fair Furniture Group; an innovative and sustainable group of Dutch manufacturers of school and office furniture. A family of like-minded brands and people.

Smart ideas come to life in our factories in Hoogeveen, Emmen, Wijchen and Breda (Netherlands). In the United Kingdom, we are represented by Nomique, with showrooms in Telford and London.
Based on our brand values (100% supportive, involved in education and a sustainable choice), we help education with transformation and innovation. We are looking for someone who can identify with these values and who thrives in an informal, no-nonsense corporate culture.
