About the role 

As a Technical Sales Advisor the main duties are:

  • working to sales targets
  • generating orders and responding to enquires
  • dealing with incoming and outgoing sales calls
  • maintaining existing customer accounts

This is primarily an office based role, however everyone in this branch pulls together as a team, so you will be expected to help out in other areas of the branch, like the trade counter and warehouse. You will also be negotiating with suppliers, generating quotes and investing time in build strong working relationships with our customers.

About you 

Delivering high standards of customer service is our main priority; any experience of doing this previously would be preferable - especially in an office based or merchant environment. Existing commercial plumbing knowledge is essential, but we don't expect you to know everything about the trade. We can help support you in your product knowledge development, but what we can’t teach you is enthusiasm and a positive attitude, if you can supply that and a willingness to learn, we’ll provide you with the knowledge and the tools to excel in this role.
