Are you a Sales Consultant used to selling a luxury product?
An experienced Sales Consultant is required urgently for a luxury outlet in Reading town centre.
Salary from £18'000 to £22'000 dependent on experience + OTE in excess of £6'000, annually
This is a unique and niche opportunity that will open many doors to a wonderful career in the Art world.
The main attribute you would bring to this role is your professional, friendly, warm and open personality.
* Do you have experience selling a luxury product in a prestigious venue? Would you feel totally at ease selling luxury items that can range from £500 to £100'000
* Are you passionate and excited about learning and developing within a new role?
* Will you always provide an exceptionally high level of service to your clients?
* Are you flexible in the hours you work, prepared to work weekends and evenings for exhibitions?
* Would you feel comfortable making warm calls to clients to advise them of new exhibitions?
* Could you offer physical support with curating, hanging and preparing for exhibitions and private views? This would include using ladders, handling fragile and sometimes heavy paintings?
No day would be the same and days off are on a rota basis, during the week, as weekends are clearly the key times.

For more information about this exciting role please call Paula on (Apply online only).

You would be the main point of contact for the clients, responding to interest in the gallery and identifying business development opportunities through client database, local business links and intelligent marketing. This would include placing warm calls to existing clients, building relationships, and rekindling and nurturing less frequent buyers. This will include home private views, so a full clean driving licence is essential.
You would be working in a small close knit team where motivation and hunger for the sale is paramount. Exceeding targets and earning bonuses must be high on your agenda.
A proven sales track record would be highly advantageous.
An in-depth knowledge of art is not necessary for this role as full training will be given, including a 3 day training seminar at the Art Academy in London, all-expenses paid.
For this reason they are particularly looking for someone who is committed and would like to build a career with them.
