What being a Sales Consultant involves.
Selling our products, whether that’s car, home, travel or pet insurance, is your ultimate aim, but you’ll also help customers by amending, transferring and renewing policies.
When a call comes through, it could be anyone, from any walk of life, and you’ll have to adapt your approach accordingly. You’ll follow scripts in certain areas, but how you go about walking your customers through the process, getting to know them, highlighting the benefits and matching the products to your customers is largely up to you.
Skills and qualities you’ll need
We want people to draw on their life experience, personality and individual talents. If you have sales experience, so much the better. Whilst we offer training, broadly speaking, we look for:
• The ability to communicate persuasively
• Sharp thinking and an eye for detail
• Helpfulness and a passion for customer service
• Drive and enthusiasm for meeting targets
• PC literacy
In return, we’ll give you a great team atmosphere, extensive training, excellent benefits and plenty of opportunities for progression in our call centres.
