About the role
You’ll be the first point of contact for our fantastic customers, taking around 25 calls a day from 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…
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 to the UK’s fastest broadband provider!
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….
We’ll give you further training opportunities to improve your selling technique and earn that extra commission. And if you’re looking to do more, we have opportunities for you to move up into a team management role, or even to take a side step into a different area of our business.
This role will be based in our office in Sheffield where you’ll spend the majority of your time. Therefore you’ll need to live a commutable distance from here. However, given the change we’ve all experienced in recent months, we are open to discussing a hybrid approach involving office-based and home working arrangements, following your office-based induction and training.
The must haves
•You must live within a commutable distance of Sheffield
• The ability to communicate with existing and potential customers over the phone
• The ability to overcome rejections from customers
• Have previous experience of working in a target-driven environment
Other stuff we’re looking for
• Sales experience would always help, but lots of our best people joined without any
What’s in it for you?

• A competitive salary of £24,530, (Basic salary of £18,530 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

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.
