Do you have the correct profile?
We know that this role will ideally suit an experienced internal sales person who can demonstrate a good track-record of success in a similarly fast paced position. That said, it’s often about character and personality. So if you fancy a fast paced & varied role where you can showcase your charisma in charming our customers and you’re not afraid to make outbound calls, we would love to hear from you. You will need to learn our internal systems (CRM etc.) but that goes for anyone and we will provide full training. It is however vitally important that you have a first class telephone manner (friendly and professional) coupled with strong administration skills. It also helps if you are commercially aware and target driven.
We offer an attractive basic starting salary (commensurate with experience) along with an attractive performance/profit linked bonus scheme and a flexible employee benefits scheme that includes: 25 days annual leave (rising up to 27 days with service plus all bank holidays), additional holiday purchasing scheme, contributory pension & employee discount scheme.
