About the role
This is an office based telephone sales role where you’ll be making and taking calls from your panel of financial advisers in order to sell LV=’s Equity Release products.
In doing so, you’ll provide financial advisers with factual information about our Equity Release products and help answer any queries they have as well as providing quotes and technical advice. Which means keeping your product and industry knowledge up to date so you become their trusted consultant and go to person and your technical knowledge of Equity Release sets you apart from the competition.
You’ll develop relationships; building strong, trusted and sustainable partnerships with your panel of financial advisers, ensuring you provide value added service to enable them to recommend LV= products to their clients and achieve your individual sales targets. You’ll influence, sell, & handle objections so that the Adviser recommends LV= products ahead of our competitors.
Working in our Hitchin office you’ll get to work for a lovely company with some very lovely people! Working hours are 35 hours per week between the hours of 8.30am to 5.30pm (weekends and bank holidays are not a requirement of this role). The role comes with a competitive base salary, a half yearly group bonus scheme and study support towards professional qualification.
This is a 12 Month Fixed Term Contract.
We’re looking for someone who has previous experience working with Loans, Mortgages and or Equity Release products. You’ll therefore come from a financial services background and have knowledge of the financial adviser / intermediary market, and preferably had recent sales and relationship management experience.
We’d ideally like you to have a relevant professional financial services qualification (ER1 or equivalent) although this is not essential. It’s more important to us that you have the desire and commitment to work towards this as part of your own career development, enabling you to present yourself as an Equity Release industry specialist. We will support your study and development in order to achieve this.
You’ll have excellent telephone communication skills, the ability to build long lasting relationships and be an influential person. You’re hands-on, proactive and determined to be the best when it comes to knowing your stuff, selling products and exceeding your individual targets. You take initiative, pride in your work and are very well organised. You’ll love nothing more than working as part of a team and independently you’re just as confident. You instinctively know what you need to do and when in order to do your bit to achieve a team goal.
