Regional Business Managers

Job No: 125183
Location: Shepparton or Geelong region (Work from Home)

  • Are you an experienced sales professional passionate about forging strong customer relationships?
  • Join a highly respected, Australian family-owned business that's grown to be a national leader - and is still expanding!
  • Work from Home with significant travel opportunities!
  • Attractive salary package plus fully maintained vehicle and generous incentives!

About the Organisation

With a history stretching back over 85 years, Haymes Paint is a true Australian success story; and whilst their colour palettes and can labels may have changed with the decades, their commitment to quality has remained the same. Now in their fourth generation of family ownership, they haven't slowed down on bringing new and better products to the market, always looking for new advances or opportunities for innovation. Their values of Truth, Passion, Integrity, Respect and Listening and Learning are reflected in everything they do.

From its humble beginnings in 1935, Haymes has grown from a small paint manufacturer, selling to the local Ballarat community, to Australia’s largest manufacturer of premium brand paints, finishes, and protective coatings. Their products aren't available in the big, corporate hardware stores, choosing instead to sell through independent retailers, where they can trust that the quality of personal service and advice matches the quality of their products - after all, it's their name and reputation on the can.

About the Opportunity

With the continuing growth of the business, Haymes Paint currently has two new opportunities for experienced sales representatives to service either the Shepparton or Geelong regions, VIC as Regional Business Managers. 

These roles will be travel-based, with the successful applicants able to Work-from-Home within either of the two regions with significant travel to customers on a regular basis. Consideration of changing Covid-19 guidelines with be observed accordingly.

Reporting to the State Sales Manager, you will be responsible for maintaining a regular service to trades and stores-based customers within your nominated geographical territory.

More specifically, the purpose of your role will be to develop and maintain new and existing strategic customer relationships in order to achieve and exceed set sales targets.

Your day-to-day responsibilities will include (but will not be limited to):

  • Promoting the marketing of Haymes products and services;
  • Developing new customers through the identification of new business opportunities;
  • Applying selling skills to build a customer base and achieve set targets; and
  • Preparing regular reports as required.

About You

Haymes is looking for applicants with strong sales experience, preferably within the building/retail or closely related industries. More specifically you'll have previous success in areas such as cold calling, account management, business development or the development and delivery of business plans.

As a passionate sales professional, you will be confident in your ability to create strategic commercial relationships with new and existing customers that lead to mutually beneficial outcomes.

Adaptable and dependable, you will see the value in building rapport with diverse stakeholders throughout your wider territory as a customer-facing representative of Haymes Paint, from tradesmen looking to buy products, to family-run businesses looking to sell it.

Due to the largely autonomous nature of the role, you will also need to have a general understanding of the processes involved in managing a sales territory independently to establish a baseline profitability, including an intermediate level of computer literacy.

About the Benefits

Proudly family-owned and operated, Haymes offers the best of both worlds, with the strong commercial oversight and business skills to suite a national leader, without losing sight of what made that success possible - their staff.

Committed to ensuring each member of their team has the opportunity to grow with the business, it shouldn't be surprising that Haymes has fantastic staff retention, as they genuinely invest in each individual and encourage new ideas and innovation.

The successful candidate will be rewarded with an attractive remuneration package, negotiable based on your skills and experience, plus a generous commission structure paid quarterly

You'll also receive a fully maintained vehicle for your daily travel requirements, and have the potential to work in some of Australia's most spectacular locations as part of your career progression, with Haymes now having a national footprint.


For an exciting opportunity to build strong customer relationships in a role that affords you plenty of local travel opportunities - Apply Now!

Paint Maker

"I started when I was 16, so I’ve been here for so long, I’ve grown up with the Haymes family. The beauty of working with Haymes is that I’ve grown with the company over the last 38 years."



"When David Haymes comes in to do his presentations I think it really inspires people because he’s so passionate about the paint, it’s a nice feeling. "


Product Manager

"In my role I’m never doing the one thing. One day I might be in the lab testing paint, the next at a meeting with the advertising agency or producing marketing material."


Store Manager

"One thing I like is working in the industry itself, it’s a very relaxed industry. As for the other part of my job, working for Haymes, I like the way that they nurture their staff and bring them along in their careers — the way they promote from within."


Product & Development Technician

"I was taken on a tour of the factory on my first day and, of course, I’d come to the interview in a suit. Well, when I went up to the mezzanine floor of the factory, a bit of paint went splat right on my shirt. I never wore a suit to work again after that."



Born in Ballarat in 1935, our family run business is now in the hands of the fourth generation of Haymes. Over the years, each member has taken care to hand on the commitment and passion for crafting quality products. After all, it is our name and reputation on the can.
