Our client is looking for a rainmaker in the Chicago and Vancouver markets! Lots of room for upward growth and pathways to management within this large, well respected organization. The basic job description is below, although I'm not a fan of "canned job descriptions." Basically, if you know of someone that excels in sales in the suspended access arena, let me know and I will go into more detail with them regarding the phenomenal commission plan and other appealing factors. If they have worked the Chicago or Vancouver markets and would like to relocate back there, that will be taken care of for them. However, they absolutely must have solid suspended access/swing stage sales experience in those markets
