We have a great opportunity for a Sales Trainee working for our client, an office services provider. This role is suited to someone with a desire to start or progress their sales career, someone confident and well-presented who can build working relationships easily.
Our client is a highly successful office services provider with clients all over the country but mainly within Greater London and the City of London. The company offer standard equipment and services, but their route to market is innovative and exclusive. There is a large and successful sales team in place, and all recruitment is done at an entry level with Sales Trainees who will eventually progress into Account Managers.
On a day to day basis your role will be to call prospective clients to arrange appointments for the senior sales people. Full training is given, along with constant coaching and monitoring. It is in the client’s interest that you succeed and they will give you their full support.
Your target is set as a trainee, and this will increase periodically to stretch and develop you. Commission is paid during the training period. Once you reach a certain level you will pass your training (usually in 0 to 12 months) and your basic salary will go up.
As a fully fledged sales person you will still make appointments, but now they will be for you. Your training will include face to face sales, product training and you will be able to shadow experienced colleagues to see how it is done.
At each stage of your employment targets will be set, and as you reach them you will go up a grade of basic salary and responsibility.
The role will need you to build relationships quickly and easily, and be a strong communicator, when sometimes your message is not happily received! The successful candidate will need to demonstrate tenacity and diplomacy in equal measure on a daily basis.
Based about 15 minutes from Hertford, the office is in a rural location and so your own transport is necessary. The offices are smart and provide a comfortable working environment.
The starting salary for this role will be £18,000 per annum.
