Business development executive – telephone-based in Exeter

 

We are looking for a dynamic telesales executive to make criteria-qualified appointments for our internal and external field sales teams. This career choice is all about your ability to successfully build rapport with our prospective customers allowing you to make appointments.

 

The role is predominantly cold calling which requires you to manage a designated list of contacts and build a strong pipeline. You will become well-versed in their needs and a familiar voice on the end of the phone.

 

We are not a massive call centre that uses auto dialling to cram as many calls as possible. Although there is a call time target in place, which we expect you to achieve, we firmly believe in quality over quantity.

 

By creating a professional, respectful relationship, we believe this will naturally lead to you making appointments for our field sales team because we will be the first company your prospects think of when the need arises.

 

It does not matter if you are not an expert in B2B telecommunications or connectivity services – as full training is provided - but we do require candidates with previous telesales experience and knowledge of telephone sales skills and strategies, who are competent in using a sales database

 

We are eager to employ someone who can identify a need and selling opportunity, have the hunger to meet and exceed targets, and have the enthusiasm to contribute to this vital part of our business. We like people who are reliable, passionate and have a good sense of humour.

 

We would love to hear from people who want to carve out a position for themselves in our company. We have many long-serving employees here and would like you to become one of them.

 

Basic salary plus uncapped monthly commission. We recognise and value commitment and exceptional performance and reward these attributes on an annual basis.
