Ever since Andreas Stihl invented the first portable chainsaw over 90 years ago, the STIHL name has stood for revolutionary technology and a passion for making people’s lives easier when working in nature.
Do you want to be a part of the continuing STIHL story? We are currently recruiting for an exciting field-based role to support delivery of the Dealership Development Programme to our dealer network throughout East Anglia and parts of the South East.
Are you innovative and practical with an eye for presentation? Do you thrive on providing excellent service? If the answer is yes then you could join our talented team of Merchandisers who use their skills to excite our customers and get our products in front of our customers, in the best locations.
Every member of the Dealership Development Team is an integral part of everything STIHL delivers, and you will be no exception.
Reporting to the Dealership Development Project Manager, your role will involve:

- Assisting with training dealership staff in the demonstration and effective sale of products and associated accessories
