One of our priorities has always been to reflect our diverse customer community with an equally diverse group of employees. In 2017, we set ourselves the aim of operating with a gender equal team by 2025.

We’re excited to launch our latest campaign - #levellingthefield - as we continue forward on this journey, opening up more opportunities in our Mobile Venue team. Our female workforce is less represented in this area, that’s why we are reaching out to females who are looking for a new challenge and inviting them to apply.

To be clear, we welcome applications from everyone, not just females. Click apply if you’re interested, we’d love to hear from you!

The role

So, what is a Mobile Venue Sales Associate? Using your confidence and drive, you’ll enjoy grabbing people’s attention as they walk by, encouraging them to stop for a quick chat about our fantastic Virgin Media products. You’ll wow customers with the fact that while they might be with a different provider, we can offer them the type of service that they deserve.

With a strong sales pitch, you’ll find out what potential customers’ specific needs are, and sell them Virgin Media products that match. Even if they choose not to buy a Virgin Media product, they’ll walk away from your chat marvelling at how genuinely charming you are.

We don’t expect you to know everything about Virgin Media instantly, but we’ll get you started with a comprehensive two-week sales induction training programme. Once fully trained, you’ll connect with customers in a variety of indoor and outdoor venues such as town centres, shopping malls, supermarkets and events.

Who we’re looking for

If you have a warm personality, a positive can-do attitude and enjoy earning big rewards through working to targets and overcoming obstacles, this could be your big break. You’ll need:
* A full, valid manual UK driving license
* Strong communication skills, resilience, and the ability to have great conversations
* Confidence, and a friendly personality to connect with potential customers
* To be comfortable working outside and on your feet in all weathers
* Enjoy having a target to meet. And once you’ve hit that target, you’ll relish the opportunity to nail a few extra sales and reap the rewards of uncapped commission

What’s in it for me?

Our package is exciting. With a base salary that is competitive, plus uncapped commission, there’s no saying how much you could bring home. You will also have:
* A company car, tablet and mobile phone
* 25 days of holiday, your birthday off and the scope to buy or sell an extra 5 days
* Private healthcare, plus access to our company-funded medical plan, critical illness and dental cover for your family too
* A pension plan (we’ll match what you put in, up to 10% of your salary!)
* Mates rates on Virgin Media services so that you can share the love with your friends and family
* Access to the ‘Virgin Tribe’ and deals on Virgin TV, mobile, broadband and home phone lines - saving you lots of cash on everything from holidays to wine
