A clear understanding of direct sales environments would be beneficial but all retail backgrounds will be considered. You must be a go-getter and someone who can identify external as well as internal opportunities.


Your hard work will be rewarded with a basic salary of between £30k and £33k with substantial bonuses and benefits that should see your OTE at £70k or beyond!
