Sales Consultant

My client is a London based start-up born of a joint venture between a team of experienced entrepreneurs and a major financial institution. Their mission is to provide a range of financial services tailored to the specific needs of professionals working in the public sector (namely teaching). Working closely with the unions involved, they will support their clients by offering simple, transparent and high quality products that ensure they can achieve and retain financial security.

Working from a sophisticated database of schools and on foot of an introduction from the union, you will schedule appointments in schools with head teachers and union representatives. Using video you will present the benefits of the scheme to the union members in their staffrooms and follow up with one-to-ones with members to recruit them to the scheme using sophisticated digital sales tools. You will also more generally promote the scheme by occasionally attending union branch meetings, conferences, seminars, training sessions, etc.
This is a demanding role involving as it does breaking open a new market in the UK. It requires a highly motivated, ambitious individual, who has the foresight and drive to help realise the company’s goals. As part of a young, energetic, hand-picked team, you will join us in facing all the challenges and opportunities inherent in a start-up as we work together to realise the company’s tremendous prospects for the future.
What’s key for us is to find someone who is the right fit for our team and our business so we do not have a pre-ordained set of requirements – we’ll know if you’re the right person when we see you, just as you’ll know whether it’s the right job for you when you meet us. This means previous experience in the financial services industry is not a pre-requisite, but you’ll need to be the kind of person who excels at whatever challenges you take on and possess all of the following:

* Great presentation skills and ability to ‘break the ice’
* Excellent one-to-one sales skills
* The ability to communicate complex ideas in a simple way
* The capacity to gain the confidence of clients through your honest, ethical, and professional demeanour
* A relentless focus on the best interests of our clients
* The desire and enthusiasm to positively affect others’ lives
* A self motivated and well-organised disposition with the capacity to work on your own
* Highly target-driven with the ability to focus on both short-term goals and long-term strategic objectives

What makes this opportunity so exciting is that it blends all the ethos and growth opportunities of a start-up with the muscle of a major financial institution. This means you’ll enjoy excellent financial rewards from day one whilst at the same participating in the longer-term rewards as you play a key part in building a major company from the ground up.

This role is paying a base salary of £32,500 plus OTE of 30% of base salary, mileage allowance, pension, life assurance and health insurance.
