Job Description

 
Due to our exciting expansion and growth plans we have four newly created Internal Sales Specialist positions available. Reporting into our Commercial Support Manager, you will form part of a new team within our Development Sales Office, based in Watford, and you don't need to come from our sector or even know our products, you just need great customer service and proactive sales experience. In return, we can offer you a great induction and onboarding, exposure to a number of apprenticeship programs and career opportunities.  

On top of this we offer a competitive salary and a range of colleague discounts across the Travis Perkins Group (including Wickes and Toolstation). We also have a number of online discounts at leading retailers from airport parking to theme parks to eating out and cinemas.  Our working hours also offer a great work life balance - most of our customers choose to enjoy their weekends and bank holidays which means you can too!



What will I be doing?
No one day is the same as the next in TP, but here are a few pointers:
  • With your newly trained product knowledge, and data received you will be making outbound calls to new, existing or lapsed customers, proactively promoting new initiatives, promotional activities, whilst also supporting selected branches to help them grow share of their local market.
  • Our business is based on strong relationships and repeat business, so it's key that you can gain an understanding of their needs and requirements to help to deliver sales growth via the selected contacts within our business.
What skills do you need?
  • Previous experience in a similar role. e.g Telesales, Customer Call Centres, Telemarketing or any other sales related role.
  • Ability to work on your own initiative and effectively as part of a team.
  • Good organisational skills with the ability to plan and prioritise your work and meet deadlines.
  • Excellent interpersonal and communication skills with the ability to relate to a broad spectrum of individuals.
  • IT literate - good working knowledge of software applications.
Does this sound like you?
We hope you can say ‘Yes’ to all of the characteristics below -
Are you:
  • Someone that has a friendly and outgoing personality who is happy to communicate well with customers and colleagues and build strong relationships
  • Someone that is adaptable, resilient and tenacious with high levels of energy and drive.
  • Someone who thrives in a dynamic and fast paced environment
  • Someone that has the ability and willingness to learn about our products and services
Being a Internal Sales Specialist in our business gives you a fantastic opportunity to excel and to continue to develop your career, if you choose.  As a new colleague to TP, you will be encouraged to enroll onto a TP development scheme - which are available to colleagues and managers at all levels of our business. How will you know you are doing a great job and developing your career? Simple. We will support you with a development plan that embraces our values.
 

You may not know much about Travis Perkins, but if you look a bit closer you might be surprised, despite our size, we have the values of a family run business and the mindset and ambition of a forward thinking Company.  We offer our employees access to extensive career opportunities across our 20+ leading businesses.  We operate out of more than 2,000 outlets nationwide and have over 28,000 colleagues.
