Well-respected and successful northern Illinois grain company is seeking a Grain Originator to lead their origination efforts.
The successful candidate will be a skilled and aggressive grain originator who is not afraid to get out in the country, make phone calls, and use new grain marketing tools and contracts to help farmers market grain more profitably.
The primary responsibility in this position is to help the company expand by locking in to solid relationships with current customers and establishing quality new relationships and gaining business. You will be expected to be on the road 3-4 days per week calling on farmers except during harvest. During that time, you will be stationed at your "home base" grain elevator facility where you can also meet customers any time throughout the year as needed.
Grain origination experience, self-motivation and integrity are key attributes needed to succeed in this role. You must be able to pick the phone up and cold call anyone to ask for the business and have that competitive edge to continue to work hard to win the business.
Located in a highly productive region of northern Illinois, this opportunity will allow a lot of freedom where the sky is the limit to grow the business in a culture that is more familial than corporate and offers significant career growth opportunity. Good training will be provided and a solid customer base is ready to help you get started.
Compensation will be in the $60-80,000+ range depending on experience along with an excellent benefits package.
