SALES

Find out more from our colleagues in Sales about their careers at Saint-Gobain and what to expect from a role in this function.

I am part of the Technical Sales team which specifies plasterboard and plaster systems in large projects. I work with design teams, architects, main contractors and subcontractors to find solutions to meet their requirements in terms of fire, acoustics, thermal and structural performance. Because we are customer facing, it is important not only to capture customer feedback and market insight, but to also bring the businesses new products and systems to the market. A typical day involves meeting customers or working on specifications to detailing and assisting specifiers with technical queries.
