Job Description

Central London based with significant travel

base c£33k + commission / bonus and (rare) the prospect of equity in the business - so if the business does well, so could you! 

This new enterprise has been founded by a well known, highly successful City entrepreneur with strong military connections, and in essence will roll out a concept that over the last 26 years has resulted in the recovery of over £100m of stolen Art to the field of Guns (where this new hire will lead) and Watches. 

You will be involved in marketing a range of services to auction houses, gun dealers, pawn brokers, the insurance industry and the police: these are aimed at preventing stolen items being offered on the market; their recovery; the resolution of disputes and the prevention of fraud. 

Excellent commercial training will be provided.  The individual will need to provide his / her own car, and must have a clean license: travel will be widespread within the UK, and potentially abroad. 

Ideal applicants will be young former Officers of Adjutant / Ops Officer calibre (or RN / RAF equivalent): entrepreneurial; articulate; well organised; team players and highly personable.  You will take on some existing client relationships, but your main task will be to develop new ones.  A degree of resilience, patience and the ability to accept some rejection is therefore essential: however, the concept has been shown to work in the Art context, and thus already has proven credibility. 

An interest in or familiarity with shotguns is clearly useful, but certainly not critical. 

If your performance is on target you should certainly match your former military salary in Year 1, with long term earnings potential being significant. 

No particular target start date has been given, though 'sooner' rather than 'later'.  If interested please apply asp with CV in Word and short covering letter explaining your suitability to the role and earliest availability date to; deadline Fri 19 Jan.  Early application may be advantageous.
