This team oversees the recruitment and management of a large network of sales agents, known as “Energy Officers,” who promote and sell Sun King’s PAYG solar solutions and provide ongoing customer service within their designated areas. Using the EasyBuy PAYG model, customers can acquire a Sun King solar home solution by initiating a modest initial payment and settling the remainder through subsequent installments over time.

About the Position:

The Area Business Manager will lead sales, financial transactions, and distribution activities within their designated area for the direct distribution of Sun King Solar products offered on a Pay-As-You-Basis (also known as the “EasyBuy” Business unit) through a network of agents referred to as “Energy Officers.” The Area Business Manager is primarily responsible for driving sales, ensuring prompt and accurate collections, and fostering sustainable growth throughout the Direct Distribution segment.

Utilize various channels to identify suitable candidates for selling Sun King EasyBuy products, leveraging local influencers such as village leaders, educators, religious figures, healthcare providers, farmers, and others as applicable.

Enhance Field Sales Strategies

  1. Monitor daily collection progress with Energy Officers and deliver comprehensive training to optimize collection efforts in your designated areas. This involves profiling customers and areas, ensuring consistent and timely follow-ups for collections, resolving customer issues to facilitate prompt payments, and, as a last resort, repossessing systems from defaulting customers.
