You’ll then get to put this into practice in-store but will receive ongoing training and development.
This is a unique opportunity to sell a product you love, while also benefiting from a generous bonus structure. When you begin your career, you’ll receive £20,000 in addition to your performance-related bonuses. The world really is your oyster as you will in charge of your earning potential (average take-home salary of £28,000).
What You’ll Need
- Sales experience – this is essentially a sales role (the more you sell, the more you earn)
- Travel enthusiasm and experience – to two or more continents outside of Europe
- Good IT skills – able to pick up systems quickly
- Strong communication skills – being articulate is key to speaking to our customers
