About the role
Start dates from 26th April 2021
You’ll be the first point of contact for our fantastic customers, taking around 25 calls a day. You’ll be building connections with existing customers who are looking to upgrade or change their Virgin Mobile service with us. You’ll also take calls from potential new customers who’ll be looking to you for your expert advice on our fantastic products to help them decide which is the best match for them.
Virgin Media has a long and proud history of serving the community with products and services which enable people to stay connected. We offer the full kit and caboodle – Broadband, TV services and mobile – to ensure our customers have access to the very latest tech.
The Inbound Telesales Advisor role is open to everyone – simple. As an employer, we’re committed to making sure that everybody feels free and empowered to bring – and be – their whole self at work. We’re proud to have a wonderfully diverse customer base, and it’s important to us that our teams reflect the communities we serve. Our mission is to create belonging across our people, our products, our customers & in society as a whole.
Tell me more, tell me more…
We’re on an exciting journey to continue building our team of Inbound Telesales Advisors to work out of our contact center in Sheffield. You won’t need any previous technical knowledge to shine in this role as our six-week induction will teach you everything you need to know. We’ll give you a script to follow to ensure you comply with our FSA regulations when speaking to customers, but it’ll be your great listening skills and your natural flair for making great conversation that will seal the deal when it comes to making a sale. We want you to join us as soon as possible and help us keep our customers and the country connected.
Our services are more vital than ever before and as a result, our frontline agents have been classed as key workers and our centres remain open. However, our ambition is to provide the ability for as many employees as possible to work from home after the initial 6-week training period, to create flexibility to react to the changing situation. Our long-term vision is that once things get back to (the new) normal, you’ll split your shifts between working from home and working in the office.
If you have any questions, you can speak to our team on our live web chat service between 9:30-5 Monday to Friday: https://meetandengage.com/virginmediajobs.
This is a full-time role, and you’ll work 37.5 hours per week on a rotational shift pattern within our working hours of:
Monday – Friday 8am to 9pm
Saturday – 9am – 6pm
Sunday – 9am – 5pm
A fantastic induction will welcome you to Virgin Media. We’ll give you full, in-office training on our products, services and ways of working, and that’s just the beginning. As part of our team, you’ll get lots of ongoing training and support.
The must haves
•Once the government guidelines change, you’ll spend some of your working week working out of our Sheffield office, so you must live within a commutable distance
Other stuff we’re looking for
• You’ll be confident handling all types of calls and thrive on influencing customers to buy our products
• Have previous experience of working in a target-driven environment
• Be comfortable speaking with existing and potential customers over the phone
• Sales experience would always help, but lots of our best people joined without any
What’s in it for you?
We love to reward our people for doing a great job. You’ll find the full list of benefits on our careers site, including:
• A competitive salary of £23,550, (Basic salary of £17,550 plus On Target Commission of £6,000)
• 25 days annual leave, plus bank holidays and your birthday off every year!
• Discounted Virgin Media products for you, your family, and friends
• Great Pension Plan – we match every pound you put in, up to 10%
• Company Funded Medical Plan – we pay for your own cover
Once you’ve applied, we’ll be inviting you to record a video interview, which is an automated part of our process. This can be done at a time convenient to you within 7 days, and within the comfort of your own home. You can complete this on your mobile phone or laptop.
If you’re successful, we’ll be in touch to advise you of next steps which will involve a live virtual interview with one of our managers to get to know you better. To find out more about any of these steps click here - https://careers.virginmedia.com/about-us/how-we-hire/
