Hire a Distributor

 

Transporting a product from producer to consumer involves an effective supply chain. Before your favorite gadget, jacket, food, or television reaches the shelves of your local shop, there are a lot of moving pieces. Distributors are individuals whose job is to manage goods and products from manufacturers and suppliers to retail. They handle market research, negotiations, and relationships with different suppliers. In the retail space, businesses hire distributors to act as the direct point of contact of manufacturers or suppliers. They play a key role in the supply chain. 

Recruiters use job descriptions to inform candidates about a job vacancy’s details. Listing the relevant responsibilities, expectations, and candidate requirements will help job seekers determine if they are right for the role. More than a list, the job description can be used as a way to attract quality applicants. Writing key information about the hiring company will allow candidates to get a clear understanding of the business. What are the employee benefits for distributors? Are there learning or training opportunities available?

Be creative in writing the job description. Keep in mind that it does not have to be technical. Content that is easy to understand translates better. After all, we want to attract the best applicants. Once you have the job announcement ready, post it on the hiring company’s social media channels and recruitment websites. Look for retail-specific online groups where your ideal candidates might be looking for a job.

 

Distributor Responsibilities 

 

Distributors establish and maintain good business relationships with manufacturers and vendors. Distributors need to ensure that the interest of both parties are aligned and business goals are achieved. Distributors keep up to date with market research and trends to help in identifying potential suppliers and manufacturers. They source and negotiate deals on behalf of their company for the best deals and quality products. 

Aside from working with suppliers, distributors take charge of overseeing the delivery of products. To ensure quality, they conduct spot inspections and report damaged items to the supplier. Distributors also gather feedback and information from consumers. Finding out what products they prefer to purchase will help distributors recommend potential products for the business to sell. 

 

Distributor Skills and Qualifications

 

A high school diploma or GED with relevant work experience is required, and a bachelor’s degree in business or marketing is a definite advantage. Previous work experience in the same role is likewise helpful. 

Working as a distributor requires engaging with different manufacturers and vendors. The ideal candidate for a distributor is an excellent communicator with great interpersonal skills. Having a professional and outgoing disposition is also beneficial. Because distributors can manage several product lines and vendors, candidates must demonstrate good time management and multitasking skills. Having a keen eye for detail and perseverance in conducting market research is part of the job. Lastly, computer skills and data entry are necessary.
