About the role
Field Sales Representative
Please note you’ll need a UK Manual driving licence for this role.
Salary: £38,000 OTE (18k basic + uncapped commission) plus company car
Shifts: 37.5 hours per week – Working hours are between 12pm and 9pm Monday to Friday. Additional hours may be required on Saturdays. Your Line Manager will let you know your shift pattern in advance, which could vary from time to time.
Start date: From October 2020
Residential sales, field sales, door-to-door sales – whatever you usually call it – is the bees’ knees at Virgin Media. You’re the face of fibre, TV, mobile and phone products and services from a brand people trust. And there’s a real buzz when you close a sale, because once you hit your target the commission’s endless.
First, we’ll get you on our training course*, so you know everything about what we offer – and how to match potential customers to the right service or product.
Then, we’ll give you your very own territory to sell to. You’ll plan your routes, hit the road and knock on around 175 doors a day – confidently telling every interested person how life with Virgin Media will be marvellous.
You’ll get your best results outside of office hours – late afternoon or evening is when most people are at home. Largely you’ll be working on your own, but you’ll have the full support of your team and your manager. Working outside in the summer is a bonus but you’ll also have to be prepared to brave the cold winters.
*If you are successful in your application, you’ll be required to complete a 9-day training course, which will be a blended experience of virtual and face to face training. You will be required to spend a couple of nights away from home at one of our residential training centres. This will be discussed with you during the recruitment process.
Who we’re looking for
You don’t need experience in sales or tech products. But this is something for a natural talker. Even then, you won’t always hear those magic words ‘sign me up’ – so it’s also how you handle rejection that counts. Resilient? Unflappable? Always want to do better? Then we’d love to sign you up. You’ll also bring:
• A knack for forging strong relationships. You’ll love meeting and speaking to all sorts of new people
• An unflinching tenacity. However, your day’s going, you’ll stay positive and always want more
• A competitive streak. Always striving to improve, you’ll love to win and enjoy the reward that comes with great success.
What’s in it for me?
In many ways, this is one of our most important roles – and we always reward high performers. As well as the uncapped commission, you can look forward to:
• Discounted Virgin Media products for you, your family and friends
• 25 days holiday every year plus bank holidays, and your birthday off each year
• Great Pension Plan – we match every pound you put in, up to 10%
• Company Funded Medical Plan – we pay for your own cover
Once you submit your application, a member of our recruitment team will be in contact with you if we wish to take your application further.
Please note this role is subject to security vetting checks, and clearance will be required prior to starting.
Due to the popularity of our roles, Virgin Media reserves the right to close the vacancy prior to the advertised closing date.
