Desk Based Sales Specialist


Location: Manchester


An opportunity to join one of our dynamic desk based sales teams here at Virgin Media, consistently achieving monthly, quarterly and annual sales targets for BNS product penetration.

It’s doing things different. It’s changing the game. And to make that happen our people need to be a little bit different too. Forget about pen pushers and clock watchers. Our people are super sharp and switched on. Flexible, friendly, and up for any challenge. So if you join us as a BNS Desk based Sales Specialist, get ready for something new.

A challenging role within our Virgin Media Business Network Services team, you’ll articulate winning solutions to existing customers and new accounts - and much more besides. For instance, you’ll initiate and build relationships with key contacts within our customer and prospect base. You’ll also lead campaigns that encompass BNS solutions right across our desk-based teams. Working with our business units to produce a compelling service offering will be important too. And, when it comes to identifying up/cross sell opportunities or providing feedback on market trends, again, we’ll rely on you.

Structured and professional in approach, you have an in-depth understanding of sales techniques and cycles plus forecast/pipeline management. Indeed, you're a dab hand at selling unified communications, networking, server and storage solutions and implementing strategic and tactical plans to drive sales growth. You're also used to cross-functional team working and achieving demanding sales/operational targets too, while excellent attention to detail is also vital. Last but not least, you know how to turn the complex sounding into tangible benefits and, equally important, understand the significance of market trends.

So why Virgin Media? We are delivering the biggest investment in the UK’s digital infrastructure for over a decade, with a £3bn programme to extend our ultrafast broadband network and brilliant Virgin TV to 17 million homes and businesses. We’re challenging our competitors with the best services and the fastest speeds.

Join and you’ll be part of the Virgin Media family. You can trust us to do the right thing by you. We’re a great place to work - and we offer impressive benefits too. Get ready for a generous holiday allowance, contributory pension, performance related bonus and, of course, discounts on our fantastic mobile, broadband and cable.
