Job details:
How would we sum it up?
This is a broad role for a personable and logical graduate to provide an essential link between the customer, colleagues, suppliers and management. You will manage your own client projects, from picking up their initial enquiries, using consultancy skills to understand their needs, advising them on the product that is most suitable, and following up after the process is completed to ensure they get an excellent experience. By using your technical know-how and ability to really understand client needs, you will make a huge contribution to the success of an already thriving Sheffield-based business. This is not your typical Technical Sales role – think building relationships with customers and assisting with marketing, not cold calling!

What’s the business all about?
The business is Eurovalve UK, a provider of valves, actuation and control equipment to some of the UK and Europe’s leading manufacturers. Despite being small, the team have over 100 years’ experience in the industry and are regarded as experts in our field, having come across virtually every type of valve application that you can imagine! Despite recent expansion, the business retains its family-feel and tight-knit team – three members of the team recently completed a fundraising challenge for Bluebell Wood. Find out more at:

What are all the practical details?
Starting salary: £20,000 - £23,000pa plus company bonus structure and pension scheme
Location: Eurovalve (UK) Ltd, Unit 1D, Campbell Way Business Park, Campbell Way, Dinnington, Sheffield, S25 3SF
Start date: May/June 2019
Length of internship: Permanent, with six months’ probationary period

What else do you get as a RISE intern?
