Sales Associate - Retail Store
£25,575 OTE, £16,575 basic + amazing benefits
37.5 hrs spread across five days - Monday to Sunday.
There are shops and stores, and then there are Virgin Media Stores. Not just exciting places to work, they’re perfectly tailored to show off our ultrafast broadband and amazing phone and TV services - and help you make lots of sales too.
You’ll be the first person customers see when they walk in. So it’ll be your job to break the ice, find out what they need, and sell products and services that’ll make their lives richer.
There’ll be products to demo, and people who’ll pop in with technical questions too. Once you’ve completed your five-day training, you’ll know how to work everything, and what to do with the more complicated questions.
It’s all about being the friendly, passionate face in our store - and occasionally outside, if things are quiet and the team wants to spread the good word. It’s worth putting in the effort too, as the bonuses and opportunities for progression are great. After all, 80% of our Store Managers, Team Leaders and Regional Managers started in this very role.
Who we’re looking for
If you’re a real people person with a positive, can-do approach to problem-solving, this could be the role for you. You’ll need:
Demonstrable customer service and communication skills
The willingness to work on a busy shop floor selling products to customers
To be comfortable with technology, as you’ll provide live product demos in store
Familiarity with a target-driven environment
Sales experience would always help, but lots of our best people joined without any.
What’s in it for you
We really appreciate our salespeople. Which is why we run daily, weekly, monthly and annual rewards. There are iPads, spa days and helicopter rides to win; and we recently flew some of our best performers to Barbados and Miami. Plus, we’ve made sure the rest of the package is impressive too.
33 days’ leave including bank holidays
The option to ‘buy’ even more leave
Your birthday off, every year!
Private medical insurance
Discounts on our broadband, mobile, voice and media services, and money off other Virgin Group products, services and experiences
It’s always exciting at Virgin Media. Right now, though, we’re in the middle of the UK’s biggest digital infrastructure improvement for over a decade. Our £3bn programme will pipe our ultrafast broadband network and brilliant Virgin TV into 17 million homes and businesses. It’s just one of the great stories you could soon be telling potential customers.
We are proud to work with Everywoman to champion the advancement of women in business, and through our partnership with Scope to help one million disabled people get into and stay in work by the end of 2020.
We strive to build a diverse and sustainable workforce where gender balance and parity are integral features of our workplace, and where disabled candidates and employees can confidently perform to their full potential through our Work with Me adjustment process.
If you are thinking about applying for a job with us and have a condition or impairment that could impact your performance, we’ll be happy to work with you to explore adjustment options.
