Dear Sir/Madam
I am working in construction firm . There are only 15 employees .
We have appointed one candidate he is relative of our one of the partners. Now I would like to issue an appointment letter so I asked my senior about his designation. he said he looking after everything i.e sales supplier etc. I don't what kind of designation shall I consider as he is fresher for our Industry but overall the candidate is hard worker, well educated & sincere.
Please reply.

Hi Sujatha, Greetings, Please follow whatever your Managing Partner suggested you thats it. Do not take decision without having any kind of approvals.
Dear Sujata
You have mentioned that yours is a construction firm.
What kind of assignment/tasks is that person handling ?
Its difficult to suggest a designation, without having more information.
At the same time; in my opinion; the designation of "sales supplier" seems to be inappropriate, as "suppliers" are generally third-parties.
If that person is dealing with sales, like, keeping track of it or following it up; then you can designate him as "sales-tracker" etc.
Warm regards.

I second, Mr Raj Kumar responsibilities, past experience, knowledge background, Education Qualifications and present assignments that he is going to assign can only help you in this regard but as per your Senior/Boss/MD said that this new employee going to work for whole, you can designate him such as EXECUTIVE - WORK/ Department (i.e. Purchase/Procurement, Project, Sales etc) else Representative -Sales & Other ( as per assignments/responsibilities ) that can cover all Sales related work
Second, how can you say the candidate is hard worker, sincere until you appoint him and judge his performance and sincerity? It is just like your seniors appraise him, and you are following his words only but cant recommend at your end. However, this is not your concern here, but i just wanted to remind you this.

Dear Sir,
Follow up with the agencies and their contractors for work.
Follow up for purchases order if they are delay for any reason.
He attends the clients if any one comes for Flat inquiry.
In short he is going to representative for Sales Purchase & Engineering Dept.
Qualification is

Sujata, Probably you can put designation as "Co-ordinator - Sales & Customer Service" Seniors, need your opinion too whether i am correct or not. Regards, Barkha
Hello Sujata,
You haven't mentioned the level/seniority of the person.
However, going by the areas he seems to be handling, Executive/Senior Executive--Operations would be the best-fit I guess.

Dear All, Thanks for your prompt reply I think Executive/Senior Executive — Operations designation is okay let me know the feedback from my Director on the same. Regards sujata
Have you got a structure of designations ? Designations should be structured in such a way that it should have direct linkage to salary level, responsibility and level of hierarchy. If you give designations at random, you will find Juniors / freshers have higher level designations than those who have more knowledge, skill and experience. Develop a Matrix of designations in an excellent sheet and then see how it looks like !
Dear All: What not call him "OUR MAN FRIDAY'! You wouldn’t be pushing youself too far, nor would you 'appear' displeasing to your boss!
