Sales Advocate // Spring 2018

COMPANY DESCRIPTION

4P Foods is a Benefit Corporation located in the Washington, DC-area. As a mission-driven company, our goal is one of duality:  First, we aim to help small farm families earn a living wage by giving them access to the growing demand for good, regional, ethically sourced, sustainably produced food.  Second, we focus our business model on increasing access for all people to the nutrient dense, healthy foods that our farmers are producing. 4P Foods strives every day to be part of the movement that is working hard to create a more equitable food system.

4P Foods believes in a future where nourishing, sustainable, and delicious food is not a privilege but a right. We help our customers to live their values by knowing that their food dollars are being spent to help support our farmers, our planet, and the communities we live in.

JOB DESCRIPTION

4P Foods has an immediate opening for a sales team member to help grow our expanding member base throughout the Washington, DC region. Because our farmers rely on us to be their advocates while they do what they do best – grow awesome food – our team members are committed to a future anchored by equitable food systems.

The primary focus of this position will be to generate new relationships with commercial businesses that are interested in their employees’ health and wellness. Lead generation will be an important aspect of this position in researching local market segments, finding and calling prospects, and scheduling appointments for the 4P Foods sales team. We are a small but growing team, so we are looking for someone who has a proactive attitude, creative energy, and an ability to present new ideas to the team.

Candidates must have experience in sales, ideally with a B2B sales position, with a familiarity with outbound calling, telemarketing and/or other outside sales phone-based efforts. Sales effort will be the majority focus of this position. As a 4P Foods sales advocate, you must be highly motivated with a strong work ethic and exceptional people skills. Because you are an advocate for our family farms, you should have a passion for combining honest sales, a love of great food, a soft spot for farmers, and an appreciation for corny food puns. Bottom line, you enjoy the fact that your work will help make your community a better place in the world.
