Premium Racewear Sales Manager

We are United Autosports, the Leading Endurance Race Team in the UK and we looking for our next Team Member to join us in a new role for the business. We are proud to be the UK distributor for two premium racewear brands HRX and Schuberth. We have recently overhauled our processes and are looking for our next team member to join and take the lead for this very exciting opportunity to earn uncapped commission (paid annually) in one of the coolest industries on the planet. Motorsport.


The opportunity within this role is huge. The right person will be hungry, self motivated and driven to succeed. While it is a sales role, the opportunity to turn this into something bigger, something really significant in itself is absolutely there. But it is serious. It is complex and you are going to need to be an agile, conscientious plate spinner who understands how motorsport works. Selling racewear is one thing, selling premium racewear is another. Selling totally bespoke premium racewear is a completely different ball game. It is relentless. It is demanding. It is complex. But – the rewards are worth the effort. With uncapped commission opportunity offering products that are known and trusted as the sole UK distributor for these premium brands, the sky is the limit.
