Here at Virgin Media we’re not just investing billions into our network, we’re also busy investing a little closer to home spending over £4.5 million in recent years on refitting our existing stores…
You’ll be the first person customers see when walking into one of our amazing stores, eager to know more about our fantastic products. The key to your success won’t come down to your technical know-how, it will be the care and attention taken to fact find and understand what the customer really wants. We believe in getting to know our customers, and selling them the right digital products to help enrich their lives.
Of course there will be people that pop in with account or tech related questions, so excellent customer service is a given here, acting as a Virgin Media brand ambassador. As we reward you for hitting your individual sales targets you’ll need to do what it takes to go the extra mile; this can mean everything from live product demos in store, to standing outside the store during quiet periods looking to create opportunities to sell!
Our expectations are high - so what will you need to succeed? You’ll have a great way with people; a positive approach to solving their problems, excellent listening skills and a passion for the Virgin brand. Sales experience is ideal, but a natural curiosity and interest in people is just as important.
A fantastic 5 day residential induction will welcome you to Virgin Media. We’ll give you full training on our products, services and the tools needed to make a sale. All we ask from you is that you love what we do here, and cannot wait to get into store to sell the Virgin Media dream!
Fancy sunning yourself in Barbados or Miami? These are just a few of the places that we’ve sent our top sales performers annually for a no expenses spared trip of a lifetime! Our weekly and monthly rewards for meeting targets are pretty special too - everything from spa days to helicopter rides.
This is just the start, show us that you’re up for the challenge and the opportunities for progression are endless- don’t just take our word for it, ask the 80% of our Store Managers, Team Leaders, and even Regional Managers that started here as Retail Sales Associates! Pretty awesome right?
Oh and we should probably mention just some of the benefits too…
* 33 days’ holiday each year pro rata including bank holidays, plus we’ll also give you your birthday off!
* Private medical care, dental plans, and the opportunity to buy/sell additional holiday days
* Joining the Virgin Media family means BIG discounts off of our services & products for yourself and your mates - as well as discounts across other Virgin companies
