Current vacancy - Sales executive
GWI is the leading market researcher for the international water market. We produce reports, databases, and monthly/weekly publications for professionals in the industry.
We’re a rapidly growing company. There’s great upward mobility potential for those who work hard. We have a small sales team at our Oxford office of about 10 people who are very friendly, ambitious, and independently motivated.
We’re looking for a sales executive to work in our central Oxford office. You’ll be calling business people from companies around the world who work in the water industry. You’ll be selling them products specific for professionals within the water industry.
Your primary duty will be making phone calls and writing emails. You’ll need to maintain and organize sales leads, to gain the maximum benefit from each opportunity. The role is a part time position approximately 20-30hrs per week. Our regular office hours are 9am-6pm Monday to Friday, though you may from time to time be required to come in earlier or stay later. Starting pay is £8.50 per hour plus excellent commission.
We’re hoping to find a bright and enthusiastic person looking for a step-up in publishing and the chance to make a big difference in a small company. The successful applicant will be:
- educated to degree level or equivalent
- a quick and creative thinker who can present our products in ways that will intrigue potential clients
- a friendly and confident communicator with strong negotiating and interpersonal skills
- positive and motivated to persistently make calls
- comfortable working with a wide range of people and tasks
- able to enjoy working as part of a small team but also confident working independently
Previous sales experience, specifically over the phone is preferred. Knowledge of the water sector is desirable, but not essential.
Please email Dominique Winpenny, email@example.com, with your CV and covering letter. The closing date for applications is 30th September 2012.
Are you a bright graduate who’d like to start a career in publishing or in the water industry? Or do you need flexible part time work to help you through their degree? Often students who help us out in part time admin or telesales jobs end up staying on in the sales and marketing department as full time members of staff once they’ve graduated.
For sales and marketing roles, please send your CV to Emma Welsh, Sales and Marketing Director, firstname.lastname@example.org
We’re also happy to receive speculative applications from graduates. For editorial roles, please send your CV to Christopher Gasson, Managing Director, email@example.com.
