About the role
About the role:
A UK Manual driving license is required for this role.
Making commission just became even easier. We now combine new and existing customer sales with small business selling, giving you the best opportunity to earn uncapped commission.
- Sell ‘door to door’ (D2D) to new residential customers.
- Save existing residential customers.
- Sell to new small business (home office) customers.
The on-target commission is £20k per year in this role. However, great Field Sales Representatives can expect to earn anything between £50k-£70k in commission per year (…we’re serious!).
No D2D Sales experience? No problem. We want sales-minded people with a great work ethic, to join our fun, sociable team. That’s right, you may be field based, but you’ll still feel part of the team with our inclusive culture. Our daily virtual catch-ups are a great way to kick-start your day and get to know your colleagues better.
Don’t take our word for it…come and see for yourself. You will be invited to a job appreciation day to experience what ‘a day in the life’ is like for one of our current representatives before accepting our offer.
Every day is different. Take on a variety of barriers and assist our customers with a problem-solving mindset to make sure that they are satisfied with their current and future plans. You’ll learn all of this in a supported environment, from your knowledgeable and friendly team, through on and off the job training.
Tell me more, tell me more…
