Here at Virgin Media we’re not just investing billions into our network; we’re also busy investing a little closer to home spending over £4.5 million in recent years on refitting our existing stores…
Through sales, service, stores and strategy - we aim to grow our business and relationships with customers. Our sales and retail experts engage with customers and help them find the right products to keep them happy

As a Sales Team Leader, you’ll be taking on one of the most important roles in the store.

Reporting into the Store Manager you’ll be responsible for executing the sales plan on a day to day basis, driving the achievement of your stores sales targets through highly effective sales floor management. 

You’ll spend most of your time on the shop floor meeting customers, establishing their needs and directing them to the most appropriate sales colleague to assist further. You’ll constantly be delivering coaching excellence to your sales people, developing them whilst leading from the front.  Your infectious enthusiasm will motivate them to achieve ever-greater levels of success.

You’ll be a born leader, with great sales skills and a target driven mentality. 

So, what are we looking for?

You’ll have previous experience working within a sales and customer care environment with a track record of over achieving targets.

You’ll be able to demonstrate strong leadership skills and coaching techniques, gained from direct experience in similar environments.

You’ll also have a passion for product knowledge and providing the highest levels of customer care.

What’s in it for you?

A fantastic 5 day residential induction will welcome you to Virgin Media.  We’ll give you full training on our products, services and the tools needed to make a sale.  All we ask from you is that you love what we do here, and cannot wait to get into store to sell the Virgin Media dream!

Fancy sunning yourself in Barbados or Miami?  These are just a few of the places that we’ve sent our top sales performers annually for a no expenses spared trip of a lifetime!  Our weekly and monthly rewards for meeting targets are pretty special too - everything from spa days to helicopter rides.
This is just the start! Show us that you’re up for the challenge and the opportunities are endless – don’t just take our word for it, speak to one of the Retail Store Managers who have progressed and developed into their role from working as Sales Team Leader… in fact 80% of them were promoted internally so take your pick! Pretty awesome right?
