About the role:

Here at One Utility Bill we’re a friendly team and have built our reputation on providing exceptional service whilst selling the right solution to our customers.

We’re looking for confident, friendly people to join our busy Sales team and deal with inbound enquiries from our customers (who are mainly students). You’ll help them to understand the packages we offer and match them with one that is perfect for them.

Your basic salary will be £9 per hour and you will also be eligible to earn commission throughout the summer period. The role is 35 hours per work, typically worked from Monday - Friday though some weekend and evening work may be required. This is a temporary position beginning on 10th August 2020 and ending on 30th September 2020.

Our office is located in Ouseburn, Newcastle. Your training will take place in the office and last between one - two weeks.

We are beginning a phased re-opening of our office and as part of this you will be invited to work from the office for one day every other week for the rest of the summer along with the rest of the sales team.

About you:

  • Previous sales experience is preferred but we’ll ensure you receive full training from our knowledgeable managers. It’s essential that you have an enthusiastic attitude, a willingness to learn and a proactive approach to work.
  • You’ll spend most of your day talking to our customers on the phone so you’ll need to have excellent communication skills and a professional phone manner with strong rapport building skills.
  • You’ll be handling objections frequently so you’ll need to be a naturally confident person and be determined to see the sale through to completion.
  • You must be able to commit to the role until at least 30th September 2020.
