Leviton Manufacturing Inc is the largest privately held provider of wiring devices, lighting control systems and network devices. Based in the US, it has more than 7,000 employees and operates in over 80 countries. There are several divisions, including Residential, Commercial & Industrial and Lighting.
Leviton Network Solutions supports commercial networks and data centres around the globe with a variety of infrastructure products and systems. Leviton systems are engineered to the highest of standards and enable end-to-end performance and reliability, keeping people connected.
Leviton Network Solutions EU headquarters are located in Glenrothes, where the business manufactures highly innovative copper and fibre optic cabling solutions, including custom pre-terminated options. A second production facility, based in Leigh, Greater Manchester, specialises in the manufacture of high-performance cabling for extreme environments, supplying to the military, rail, automotive, industrial, and aerospace sectors.
Some recent changes and restructuring within the Finance team have created the opportunity to appoint a Pricing and Quotations Manager (PQM), to be based in Glenrothes and report into the Senior Finance Manager. This is a highly commercial role within the business, providing a crucial link between Sales and Finance. The purpose of the role is for this person to take full responsibility for price levels (products, bids and tenders) that Leviton will quote for business across its European operations. In ensuring greater consistency and profitability across the business, this role will have a very significant and positive impact on the success of the company.
The PQM’s decisions are to be guided by the knowledge of the Product Managers, local Sales Managers, and the key financial targets of the business. The PQM will be expected to develop strong relationships with all internal stakeholders, a highly detailed knowledge of Leviton products and price positioning, the specifics of local markets and the broader competitive landscape.
We are looking to appoint an extremely bright and highly commercial person into this role. We are open minded on the type of background this person might come from, but experience of product pricing in a manufacturing, infrastructure or construction environment will be of interest. This is a highly analytical role and therefore the PQM may come from a finance background, but this is not a pre-requisite. More important will be the numeracy, commerciality, and wider business awareness that this person can bring to the role.
Strong personal presence, enthusiasm and gravitas combined with excellent communication skills, a good sense of humour and the ability to work well with others will be good attributes to have. Candidates should ideally already be operating at this level and be confident in their ability to become a long term, successful appointment for the business.
