Junior Trader Europe Division
Location: Europe (anywhere within)

 
Terra Exports is a fast-paced, entrepreneurial, and innovative multi-national import/export/trading company. We’ve been referred to several times as the fruit & vegetable industry disruptors!
 
To expand our commercial team in Europe, we are looking for a Junior Sales Trader.
 

  • In this position your sales activities are aimed at selling fruits within Europe.
  • Your customers will be retailers, wholesalers, and food service companies.
  • The fruits you will sell are sourced through your brokering, our own imports into the EU, and our EU grower relationships.
  • While you may work from home depending on your location, your ability to visit customers/suppliers/growers, attend expos, and visit our other Terra Exports divisions around the world is very important.
  • You must have at least 1 year experience in the fruit & vegetable industry, ideally in a sales support role.
  • Communication is key, and given that our headquarters are in the USA, we will need you to handle the English language quite well.
  • This is essentially a sales role, so if you don’t enjoy sales and negotiations, this position is not for you.
  • While this position reports to the director of EU sales and training will be provided, it is extremely important that you are self-motivated and do not require constant supervision or micro-managing.
  • While we are very technology-oriented and use Whatsapp a lot companywide, talking on the phone every single day with growers, suppliers, and customers is exceptionally important.
  • You must understand that in international trade the 9-to-5 mentality is merely an aspiration that rarely materializes. It’s important you are readily available when opportunity comes knocking.
  • A competitive base salary is offered, plus a commission based on sales goals.
  • Terra Exports is an established global fruit company (2017 Inc 5000 #923) and we are currently focused on replicating this success, this time in Europe. Get in early and make it high up the corporate ladder!
