Job Description Overview

More complete details can be found in the full job description.

However, in brief: successful applicants for this full-time, permanent role will, after appropriate induction and training:

  • secure face-to-face meetings on a daily to weekly basis by a number of methods including face-to-face ‘foot-canvassing’ and cold-calling for appointments;
  • successfully close at a high percentage of those meetings to bring in agreed minimum-term contractual agreements with new customers on a very regular basis;
  • identify and generate other suitable leads;
  • otherwise develop the Group’s business and help provide a truly first-class service;
  • effectively manage their own performance;

Required Skills, Experience & Qualifications

Our detailed Person Specification for this role sets out those qualities we regards as being either essential or desirable.

In brief we’re looking for proven self-managing go-getters with considerable experience in sales, this trade and in ‘cold-calling’/‘foot canvassing’.

Applicants must also be numerate and hold a full current driving licence valid in the UK.

Applicants need not have experience across the full range of our key products and services, but must have experience in at least one area. Of course, knowledge of, and experience in, other areas is also highly desirable, as are trade qualifications to back this up.

Pay & Benefits

The package offered is amongst the best in the trade for successful sales professionals. Further details can be found in our Pay & Benefits section, but comprises a basic salary, supplemented by commission. Successful candidates should relish the opportunities of such a salary structure.

At the time of writing, the Company offers an excellent holiday package starting at 28 days, and increasing to 38 days after length of service. This holiday entitlement is inclusive of bank and public holidays.

Information relating to the other benefits offered by the Company may be found in our Pay & Benefits section.

Of course, as part of the role, the Company provides all tools and materials required, including a fully funded Company car, smart phone, sales documentation, etc.

Induction, Training & Trade-Qualifications

Below is a brief summary of the more complete information found in the Induction & Training section.

Typically, the first week of employment will be spent undertaking induction training which may take place at various locations across Great Britain, although some will typically take place near the employee’s own territory.

The employee will then begin a period of two weeks accompanied working in-the-field, with the amount of mentoring diminishing over time. After this, the initial training will be largely complete and the employee will be expected to be a productive self-managing member of staff, although support will always be on-hand.

Beyond this stage, the Company will revue the precise makeup of the role, along with any training and qualifications required, accordingly.

All details provided are subject to contract.
