Job Details

Sales Consultants are based at various locations within the UK and are primarily responsible for sales within a specified locality. However, they are also responsible for some national accounts sales outside this area.

In the main, appointments are arranged  by Tensor’s Internal Sales Executives but appointments will also be created by the sales consultants via web leads and potential customers phoning in.

The Sales Consultant visits potential customers, demonstrates the products, provides a quotation to the customer and progresses this through to a customer order. Online presentations will also be carried out via the web particularly in the current climate.

Tensor runs  a paperless office which is efficient and highly computerised. Quotations are typed for the sales consultants by dedicated sales administration staff allowing the sales consultant to concentrate on selling rather than secretarial work.
