Full Time

With venture capital investment from the backers of Streetcar and Zipcar in 2015 and from Wyndham hotels in 2016, an exciting opportunity has arisen for exceptional and entrepreneurial graduates to join London’s leading home-sharing travel business, Veeve. We are a full service home rental club for London homeowners to earn extra income from their homes while they’re away on holiday or out of town

Members benefit from an effortless, fully managed service with Veeve taking care of every element of the process - from finding suitable guests, to property management, housekeeping and 24/7 customer service.

Guests enjoy an authentic London experience and the convenience of a city home with hotel-style services, including airport pick ups, a maid service, fridge fills, private chefs and a nanny service. Our guests come from all over the world and, as a Sales Executive, you will be responsible for advising these guests on suitable accommodation and experiences for their stay.

Successful sales executives will enjoy excellent career progression with the potential to gain experience in other commercial areas including corporate sales, account management and business development. Management training will also be provided for those seeking leadership positions and, with plans for international expansion in 2017, we will be looking to develop candidates for international roles further down the line.

Personal qualities:

You’re ambitious, hard working and entrepreneurial, and feel at home in a fast paced start up where you can stand out and make a difference each day. It is something you can help to build and a place where your contribution is much bigger than just your job title or the department you sit within.

• You are a warm, confident and articulate communicator, able to build rapport quickly with new clients.

• You strive for success in everything you do and you’re not afraid of putting in late nights or working weekend shifts to hit your numbers.

• You are proactive, hungry and committed to chasing down every lead that comes in.

• You are passionate about London and have a good 'local’ knowledge of the city and its neighbourhoods.

• You have a 'roll-your-sleeves-up’ attitude, a genuine team player who is willing to help out and get involved in other areas of the business where necessary.

• You have a love for travel and a natural affinity with property (and you’ll get to see some of the most beautiful homes in London!). You are committed to delivering a first class customer experience.

We are looking for recent graduates from good universities with at least 6 months work experience. You should be fluent in English plus 1 other foreign language.

Successful candidates will be rewarded handsomely with an excellent remuneration and benefits package. Standard working hours are 9am - 6pm or 11am - 8pm, 5 days a week and will include some weekend days, according to the team rota.
