Sales Coordinator job title

A great job title typically includes a general term, level of experience and any special requirements. The general term will optimise your job title to show up in a general search for jobs of the same nature. The level of experience will help you attract the most qualified applicants by outlining the amount of responsibility and prior knowledge required. And if your position is specialised, consider including the specialisation in the job title as well. But avoid using internal titles, abbreviations or acronyms to make sure people understand what your job posting is before clicking.

Examples of Sales Coordinator job titles

    Sales Coordinator
    Senior Sales Coordinator
    Outside Sales Coordinator
    Sales Coordinator (Part-Time)
    Sales and Marketing Coordinator

Sales Coordinator job summary

A great job description starts with a compelling summary of the position and its role within your company. Your summary should provide an overview of your company and expectations for the position. Outline the types of activities and responsibilities required for the job so job seekers can determine if they are qualified, or if the job is a good fit.

Example of a Sales Coordinator job summary

Our fitness apparel company is seeking an experienced Sales Coordinator who can organize sales and marketing activities, as well as develop an effective sales filing system. The Sales Coordinator will work directly with team management to ensure that all the administrative and support functions of the sales department are operating effectively, and that active client files are available to the sales group. If you enjoy working in a fast-paced, dynamic team environment and have prior sales experience, we want to hear from you.

Sales Coordinator responsibilities and duties

The responsibilities and duties section is the most important part of the job description. Here you should outline the functions this position will perform on a regular basis, how the job functions within the organisation and who the employee reports to.

Examples of Sales Coordinator responsibilities

    Utilize company resources to develop a filing system that keeps all active sales files available digitally and in hard copy form
    Take the lead on organizing the resources necessary to put together high quality sales presentations
    Ensure the inventory of custom sales presentation materials such as brochures and presentation folders is always up to date
    Act as the primary customer service contact for clients who have questions about their accounts or our products
    Work with other departments within the company to bring in additional help on creating sales presentations when needed

Sales Coordinator qualifications and skills

Next, outline the required and preferred skills for your position. This may include education, previous job experience, certifications and technical skills. You may also include soft skills and personality traits that you envision for a successful hire. While it may be tempting to include a long list of skills and requirements, including too many could dissuade qualified candidates from applying. Keep your list of qualifications concise, but provide enough detail with relevant keywords and terms.

Examples of Sales Coordinator skills

    Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration or related field required
    2+ years’ of sales experience
    Strong proficiency in Microsoft Excel, Word, and Access
