Introduction

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. #thiswomancansell

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 marvelling at how genuinely delightful 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 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 you

You can find a whole range of benefits on our careers site, which include:

  • With a role as flexible as this, you’ll enjoy working hours that fit in with your other commitments outside of work
  • 25 holiday days holiday each year
