Our client is searching for an enthusiastic Retail Sales Consultant, for their modern showroom in St Albans. They require someone who is confident, articulate and intelligent; someone with impeccable English, who's confident with computers, has a great eye for design and a natural ability to communicate.
They don't do pushy sales; they believe their product range sells itself. You'll be an advisor providing guidance both on design and technical specifics. They need people who can convey complex principles in a concise manner; people who can give their retail customers the confidence to buy from them and provide the aftersales support too.
They are one of a few leading online suppliers of high-end radiators, who also have a High Street presence, both in Islington, Clapham & Brighton. They're a steadily expanding company with an enthusiastic and committed team, & have grand ambitions to expand in the UK and now want talented individuals to be a part of that success.
Day-to-day retail tasks will include greeting visitors in the high- end retail showroom in St Albans, answering enquiries by phone and email and providing aftersales service. Preparation of quotes is key to their business and requires some knowledge of building properties and heating principles. Full training will be provided but since their clients are often architects and interior designers, an understanding of architectural plans would be an advantage. It's a retail role and will involve regular work at weekends.
We encourage continued professional development and welcome applicants from all backgrounds.
