CAREERS AT BELLROY
Sales Manager - Asia

IN A NUTSHELL

Bellroy is a fast-growing brand, with warehouses, stockists and distributors located all over the world. We put our heart, soul and countless design hours into helping the world carry better and we work equally as hard to build long-term relationships with our partners based on integrity and respect. Launched with a range of six wallets and a small customer base 12+ years ago, we’ve expanded our line significantly and our wholesale business is growing quickly. We’re searching for a Sales Manager to help us nurture and grow our wholesale accounts and manage current distributors in Asia. Could it be you?


YOU COULD BE THE ONE, IF…

Have 5-10 years' sales experience working for a brand (ideally lifestyle or fashion) wholesaling its line through international distributors and key retailers across Asia. You have some design geek to go with your sales charm. Often the brilliance of our products needs some explanation, which is fine because you're comfortable doing so in a compelling, well-informed and genuine manner.

You know Asia - you might have lived there, worked there, or at least spent a decent amount of time there. You're aware of cultural differences and can adjust your communication style to build relationships and make sales. You’re motivated by a challenge, and by delivering exceptional results for a young brand doing awesome things. At Bellroy, we focus on long-term quality relationships with the right businesses (and people), to ensure our common goals are met. If you're looking for a sales management job that's a bit different, you've found it.

Bring us your sales and account management experience, knowledge of the Asia region, grit and organisation skills. In return, we’ll offer a world-class team to learn from, an award-winning culture to be a part of and the support you need to flourish.

我們的使命

啟發更好的攜帶方式。
善用商業力量。
令世界,以及我們的團隊更加繁榮。

Our Spaces

'Bellroy' is a fusion of our two homes – Bells Beach and Fitzroy. Bells Beach brings a relaxed, outdoor vibe to balance Fitzroy's creative, urban style. The city and the sea; inspiration and adventure. Together they provide a perfect balance.

Bells Beach

Our beach HQ sits behind giant sandstone cliffs that overlook one of Australia’s best-known surfing coastlines. It’s where our Product Designers experiment in the Maker Lab, and our Sales team consume awesome amounts of espresso and Skype bandwidth. Things are more tranquil here than our Fitzroy neighbours and we like the focus that can create. There’s a cafe right next door if you need a quick bite and our 11am surf check always provides the perfect chance to reset the mind with some salt air.

Fitzroy

Our Fitzroy space is immersed in the middle of Melbourne’s creative hub. It’s where our Creative, Marketing, Engineering and Operations teams develop campaigns and ensure each Bellroy is sent safely across the world. Walk out the door and you’ll find streets bursting with energy (and the best ramen joint this side of Tokyo). There’s also an olympic-size pool just around the corner for those in need of a lunchtime refresh.

Remotely

Outside of our two main headquarters we have a team that works remotely - from Western Australia to parts of Asia, the USA and Europe. Being global is at the heart of Bellroy, it keeps us connected, and makes sure we see life from many different perspectives. If you have an internet connection and the flexibility to become part of a team you don’t see everyday, you might consider joining our growing global network.
