Sales Executive, Property – £30k
This is the role for you if you have the right attitude, the right ambition and the willingness to both work hard and learn quickly – if you have sales experience too, that’s great but not the most important thing. If you can bring the right attitude to work, then our client – a specialist in the commercial property investment sector – would love to meet you right now.
Specialising in commercial property investments, our client helps investors find the right property for their money and they also help vendors looking to dispose of commercial properties. With a successful track record and a growing team, they’re now looking to grow their sales team after an excellent 2020 despite the global pandemic. 2021 promises to be a very exciting – and profitable! – year. Their head office is based in South East London and, currently, they are working 50:50 from home and in the office.
You will find and contact commercial property owners and investors to find out if they are interested in either selling or investing in commercial buildings, from warehouses to garages and onto shops and beauty salons. With access to a database of contacts along with the fruits of your own research, you will have plenty of people to call to introduce yourself and the services you offer. For interested parties, you’ll arrange a next step: either a more in-depth call or meeting or, even, a valuation of a property for sale. Even from the beginning of your time in the role, you will take each sale from first contact to closing a deal though, of course, you will be supported by a more senior member of the team in your early months. As soon as you are ready to handle deals yourself, you will have the freedom to do that. This is a brilliant opportunity for a new salesperson, or someone who wants to get into sales as their first job to learn, to earn and to kickstart their career with a bang. All you need is the desire and the work ethic (along with good communication skills of course!).
The Sales Talent Matrix: Does this sound like you?
Knowledge: Preferably, you’ll have 6-12 months of sales experience but newcomers to sales with the right attitude (see below) are also welcome to apply; some interest in or understanding of property is preferred but, again, not essential.
Attitude: THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART: if you have the right attitude, the rest doesn’t really matter. You need to be hungry for success with an outstanding work ethic – you do what needs to be done when it needs to be done rather than being the kind of person who ‘just does the job’ or is happy to tick over doing the bare minimum. You’ll be positive, enthusiastic with the courage to try out new things, jump 100% onboard with a new company and give it everything you’ve got. This is not about the intention to work hard (one day…) but the urgent and compelling desire to work your backside off to make the most of this job. With that, our client can give you the rest (training, leads, insight and a platform to succeed).
Skills: You probably have good communication skills in life with perhaps some evidence of using those skills in the workplace, preferably in a sales role; the confidence to make outbound calls to people is required to do this job though you will, of course, be helped to hone your skills; native level professional English, both written and spoken, is required; you must be happy and willing to learn new ideas quickly and put them into practice.
Habits: Punctual with a great work ethic in all you do.
The starting salary for this role is £20,000pa with first year earnings of £25-30,000 when you add in your commission. The training and mentorship available should be seen as part of your package as they may well play the most important part in your future. If you match the description above and are interested in this role, please contact us now, quoting job reference ST2761.
