London, South East England
If you’re a professional, credible and confident sales professional with the ability to listen well to pick up on a client’s needs to close deals both large and small, then we’d like to speak to you about a brilliant role with one of London’s most interesting Serviced Office Providers. Our client’s values are employee focused as well as client focused, with wellbeing (physical and mental) and happiness at the heart of their culture. With a successful track record and huge plans for the years ahead, this is an amazing opportunity to join a market leader in the world’s busiest Serviced Office market.
Less than 5 years old, our client already has an impressive portfolio of office buildings in central London with more planned (and global expansion in the pipeline too). They have made a name for themselves for their inspiring, collaborative office environments though the business is also underpinned by outstanding business savvy to ensure that the great service is able to generate the profits required for re-investment in the company’s growth. It’s an exciting place to be right now whilst also being fun, sociable and challenging.
You will be meeting senior decision makers to help in their search for a new office. As more and more companies consider the convenience and the comfort of serviced offices, your telesales team are kept busy with inbound leads which they qualify for you and book meeting slots into your calendar. After an introductory call to the prospective client, you will meet them to visit relevant buildings and offices within your area: win their business to the company and to a particular building and office and then help them make the move into their new space on time. Based in one of the company’s eight buildings from the City to the West End, you’ll be in the office from 9am – 5.30pm each day. Do this job well and there is great money to be made and many amazing opportunities to develop your career in this exciting and fast-growing sector.
Knowledge: You should have 3-5 years’ experience in a face-to-face sales role; a good knowledge of London is helpful; a keen understanding of warm customer care (and the difference it makes) is essential; you should know how to work in a sales environment, managing your own pipeline of new business.
Attitude: Positive and optimistic, you’ll be a self-starter who is very happy working independently to make things happen each day; you should also be a pleasure to work with; finally, like all good salespeople, you must be resilient and hard-working with the ambition to be the best you can be.
Skills: Strong and confident sales skills, both over the phone and face-to-face; you should have the ability to ask smart, probing questions and the patience to listen to the answers to build an understanding of clients’ needs; excellent spoken and written English (to a high standard of professionalism); outstanding personal presentation – dress, manners, politeness.
Habits: Professional and autonomous in all you do; punctual; well-organised; warm, professional and polished; a worker, not a shirker!
If you match most of the above, we’d love to hear from you.
