About the role

  • Presenting to employers, cross-selling other products and seizing all opportunities to offer clients a well-rounded service.
  • Delivering a full customer sales cycle – from securing the sale to following up.
  • Maintaining accurate and up to date client records.

Essential skills

  • Display initiative, possess a positive and enthusiastic attitude.
  • Possess a high level of interpersonal skills.
  • A full UK driving licence.
  • Excellent customer service and communication skills.
  • Competency in using Excel and CRM systems.
  • You’ll be a natural team player.
