What You´ll Do:

  • Promoting and selling a range of products and services to key personnel within the customer base through proactive telesales calls.
  • Be responsible for developing potential customers into spending accounts by effectively managing your time.
  • The CRM system will provide databases that must be kept up-to-date
  • Source your own leads
  • Diary your own calls
  • Collate relevant information through the CRM system.
  • Ensure that the CRM system always contains customers' current details.

The client offers training from leading manufacturers they work closely with, and in-house training is provided on its systems and products to ensure that the Sales Consultants have detailed knowledge of the leading products in the market.

Having knowledge of telecommunications equipment and experience using software such as ACT by Sage, Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Center, and Microsoft Office is advantageous, but not essential.
