Excellent training and development through a structured graduate programme
A structured graduate sales programme, where you will learn first how to speak with high level clients and prospects, including heads of department and company directors. You will learn how to identify needs within other businesses, and position your company's service offering as a valuable solution. Crucially, for the first 3-6 months you will not have a revenue target - you will instead be focusing on having quality conversations and gathering useful sales information. For each of these calls you'll get a commission and you'll get up to £500 a month in addition to this for hitting your call targets.
You will then progress into a meeting booking role, working collaboratively with field sales reps and ensuring that you are booking meetings with relevant companies, and contact within those companies. In this role, you will get a cash bonus for booking a meeting and 2% of the field sales deal order too!
This progresses in closing new business deals over the phone and again comes with a salary bump and an improved commission structure. From this point, your career will naturally evolve into management, field sales or account management. At Aspire, we have placed candidates who've done a variety of those roles.
- The ideal candidate will be a graduate who can demonstrate excellent communication skills, drive, ambition and a willing to go the extra mile to achieve and exceed targets
- A keen interest in business, current affairs and the commercial world
- Excellent interpersonal skills
- A professional and confident telephone manor
Experience in a telephone based or client facing role would be preferred although not essential if you can demonstrate why you are right for this role
A fantastic opportunity for a great communicator who can articulate themselves to a high level and engage an audience, who is passionate about building with an established, successful company that has a global presence.
