Field Sales Advisor - Derby
Salary: £38,000 OTE (18k basic + uncapped commission) plus company car.
37.5 hours a week – Working hours are between 9.00am and 9.00pm Monday to Saturday. Your Line Manager will let you know your shift pattern in advance, which could vary from time to time.
Please note you’ll need a driving licence for this role
At Virgin Media, we’re proud to be addressing gender representation and supporting women in the workplace. That’s why we’ve made it our aim to operate with a gender equal team by 2025. Our amazingly diverse customer base should be reflected by an equally diverse workforce that is full to the brim with all kinds of people – that’s why we need you.
Being a Field Sales Advisor is not just about selling our products. It’s about really getting to know the needs of our potential customers and building connections that really matter.
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. You’ll knock on around 150-200 doors a day on average, greeting residents with your friendly smile and engaging introduction. You’ll use the knowledge you’ll gain through our training programme along with your great conversational skills to show how our exciting range of products can liven up any household.
You’ll get your best results outside of office hours - late afternoon or evening is when most people are at home. Largely you’ll be working on your own, but you’ll have the full support of your team and your manager. Working outside in the summer is a bonus but you’ll also have to be prepared to brave the cold winters.
Who we’re looking for
You don’t need experience in sales or tech products. To really succeed in this role, you’ll be resilient and have a positive attitude. Not every open door will result in a sale and a new Virgin Media customer. Being able to pick yourself up from a knock back is key!
Even if they choose not to buy a Virgin Media product, they’ll take away a positive experience from your enthusiasm. You’ll also:
• Be comfortable working to targets
• Be confident, persuasive and full of passion
• Be comfortable working outside in all weathers
• Have a full, valid UK driving licence
What’s in it for me?

• Great Pension Plan – we match every pound you put in, up to 10%
• Company Funded Medical Plan – we pay for your own cover
Once you have submitted your application, a member of our recruitment team will be in touch by phone to arrange a telephone interview.
