My client is a leading supplier of bespoke made timber windows and doors to period properties. They operate in the London area and are very focused on the quality, high end of their market. Their windows are made to specification in a variety of styles and create interesting living and entertaining spaces.

Their products are very high quality and long lasting and sales people need to be able to represent their products in the right way. Essentially, as the face of their business you need to be well presented, good at listening and intelligent.
