What our client is looking for

Our client is a small friendly team, looking for someone to work in sales.

You do not need to have worked in sales before, and you don’t need to know all about their products, although this would be a bonus. 

If you are the sort of person who’ll go above and beyond to deliver outstanding customer service, you’re a quick learner (they have the training you need to soon become a product specialist) and are a team player, they’d love to hear from you. 

They need someone who can help their customers visualise their dreams and adventures, and really bring them to life.

You will inspire customers and help them to find just what they are looking for and do everything you can to make their wishes a reality.

You will be quick to get to the heart of every customer’s needs – whether it is a family holiday, world travel or specking a vehicle to look the best – and find solutions that fit their requirements brilliantly.

No two days are the same, one minute you could be getting creative, the next helping with their deliveries! As a small team everyone gets involved on delivery day!
