Job description

Do you want to get into the New Homes Sales industry but don't have the experience on your CV to get your foot in the door? Do you thrive in a busy, collaborative sales environment, and want to work for a company driven by sustainability, social purpose, and community?

One of the most established affordable housing providers in the Home Counties is looking for a junior New Homes Sales Consultant to train and join their beautiful development in Abingdon, Oxfordshire to cover maternity leave starting in October. This was will be a 12-month FTC, initially but you will have future sites to move to, therefore, it could turn permanent.

We are looking to speak with individuals with some property sales experience (no less than 6 months) or a background in luxury sales. You must have a proven track record of hitting sales targets, working in a front-facing role, and live in Oxfordshire, local to Abingdon.

Our client works to the highest of standards and put customers at the heart of everything they do; they are seeking a personable, hardworking, bubbly Sales Consultant, who lives locally to Oxford and can hit the ground running. You will work with one other sales consultant to learn the ropes and ideally start at the end of August.

This will be a 12-month temporary contract where you will be heavily involved in the initial sales & marketing working closely with your team and senior management. To motivate this sales consultant, our client has agreed to honor a salary up to £49,500k OTE.

Your main responsibility will be to manage all day-to-day matters that may arise in the marketing suite and sell.
