Researching and generating your own leads, identifying and converting all opportunities
Working to KPI targets including an average of 2 hours talk time
Following-up on promotional campaigns, booking appointments and responding to enquiries
Managing and recording your own administration on the internal CRM database
Maintaining your own sales forecasts and managing your individual pipeline

Suitable candidates will need to demonstrate:
Ideally educated to degree-level or equivalent
A minimum of 12 months’ experience in an outbound sales role
Previous experience of overachieving KPI based targets
Proven ability to build successful business relationships
Energetic, ambitious, can-do attitude
