ShowTex is a worldwide leader in inventing, manufacturing and installing innovative flame retardant fabrics, tracks and motion control systems for achieving the creative vision of theatre, event and entertainment professionals.
Imagine spending your working days in a company that breathes creativity. One that goes all out to bring to life the artistic ideas of event & entertainment professionals worldwide. A company that is part of an international group, but still feels like a family. Welcome to ShowTex France!
You know those drapes that define a theatre? Or the scenic fabrics that create a mood on stage? That's what we do. Event decoration, trade show displays, fabric reveal systems…? Yup, that too.
As a worldwide leader in inventing, producing and installing highly innovative, flame-retardant textiles and suspension systems, we gladly spend our days tackling the most creative challenges in set building, stage and stand design. You can find ShowTex offices in Europe, the Middle East, North America, South Africa, Asia and Australia, but your home base is located in Lyon.
Commercial drive? check! You'll seek and deal with client inquiries as a true expert, providing the highest levels of customer service, obviously.
Hands-on problem-solver? Double-check! We're talking handling sales and rental projects from start to finish. You're the trustworthy ShowTex face for your clients and a supportive and cheerful colleague for the team.
There's a bigger picture though: as an ambitious Sales & Project Manager and proficient networker, you'll obviously want to increase sales and rental volumes where possible, so start finding that market potential already!
Ah the thrill of managing a challenging sales or rental project from A to Z, you love it. On-site meetings, surveys and measurements, as well as creative problem-solving. You always find the best solution for your clients, nursing them with the right samples or marketing material and calculating feasible price estimates. Oh, and we’re never too cool to pick each other’s brain around here, so surely you will consult colleagues and other departments along the way.
No doubt communication is key: briefing your colleagues of production, transport and installation while discussing all details with your client. Even after the sale, because they will all be very keen to tell you their feedback. You would never miss a chance to optimise your and our way of working, right? Customer satisfaction for the win!
And again, you’re not in this by yourself. Together with your colleagues, you love developing strategies to approach changes and trends in the industry. We all want to grow our client portfolio after all.
TRAINING AND EXPERIENCE
As a young potential, with a first working experience, you could start with us as Junior Sales. But we also have the perfect place for you in our sales team if you worked in a similar position for at least three years. A degree in social or commercial sciences, theatre studies or textiles? That’s interesting!
Of course, we will love you even more if you can blow us away with your technical interest and ability to visualise objects or spaces. Add some computing skills and geometric insights for a perfect match!
PERSONALITY AND SKILLS
No doubt you speak Dutch, French and English fluently, how else will you pull of those communication and commercial skills, but are there any other languages you can surprise us with?
As a quality-oriented and resourceful person you are able to organise your work and priorities autonomously. That’s because it’s in your DNA to coordinate an entire project and to get the job done in, at times, a short deadline. Your optimism and hands-on mentality always stand strong, even in stressful situations!
You’re driven, as well as eager to learn and capable of accurate administrative work.
As our Sales & Project Manager, you become part of a dynamic and international workplace, representing innovative and high-quality products and services. The competitive compensation and interesting benefits package will surely underpin this.
The cherry on the pie? Without a doubt the creative industry we’re in and the amazing group of people you’ll soon call colleagues.
