Over your first 12 months, you will help to build a sales strategy around new clients whilst being supported by a team of experts. You will identify, research and call customers, begin to build your own database of clients and generate high quality sales meetings for your Business Development Managers, which can lead to £multimillion contracts.

You will be given first class training throughout your first 12 months, whilst also being partnered with a mentor who will be a senior member of staff. This role is not about hitting KPIs from day one, but is about nurturing your sales skills helping you develop and progress – although we need you to bring the work ethic, drive and determination to succeed in a fast paced sales environment!

  • Mature and focused attitude to work
  • Self-motivated and resilient
  • Competitive, driven and tenacious
  • Demonstrate the ability to quickly build relationships

The Academy

We do not recruit based on your CV, we recruit based on your ability and competence.

You will be assessed during tasks and in an interview before receiving full, detailed feedback allowing you to develop and learn. Job offers are made on the day to successful candidates.
