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 Field Sales Advisor 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 Field Sales Advisor? They’re the people who work door to door and sell our services to people in their homes. On an average day you’ll be knocking on around 150-200 doors.

People might not always be interested in our products straight away, which means you’ll need to gain their trust by asking the right questions and find out what they’re looking for. You’ll be delightfully surprising when building connections with customers, adding a thoughtful touch to every conversation.

We’ll give you a territory to work in, which means you just need to plan your routes, hit the road and start spreading some Virgin Media magic. If you are a confident, persuasive person, you’ll be a great fit for this challenging role! #thiswomancansell

Who we’re looking for

You don’t need to have experience selling tech products - you’ll be given comprehensive training in the role when you join, and of course you’ll have ongoing support from day one. You can trust us to do the right thing by you.

To be a success, you’ll need:

  • A full, manual, valid 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, always in motion and in all weathers
  • A flexible approach to work. This isn’t a 9-5 role; you’ll probably get your best results outside of office hours, often later in the afternoon or the evening when our customers are at home

You’ll be doing this in all weathers come rain or shine, and of course, we’ll provide you with a car and company branded clothing suitable for all weathers. You’ll also have all our products and prices right at your fingertips to help people make the right choice for them.

What’s in it for you

Meet your targets and you’ll enjoy one of the best commission structures around as well as lots of additional incentives and rewards.

We’ll provide all the tools you need to do the job including a company vehicle, branded clothing, and tablet. You’ll be rewarded with spectacular benefits too.

  • Buy or sell extra holiday days on top of your 25 days holiday allowance
