Telesales jobs may not sound like the most exciting career option. But actually, you couldn't be more wrong!
Working in telesales is fast-paced, challenging and with the potential of high rewards for your efforts. Read on for what you can expect to find in a typical telesales job description...
Working in telesales is likely to involve a degree of cold-calling, especially if you choose a B2B telesales job. That being said, if that's not for you then don't worry - there are many roles that are based around appointment setting and receiving inbound enquiries.
While previous experience in a sales job will always be advantageous, many telesales recruiters will consider people who are new to the industry - in fact it's a great introduction to working in sales. To succeed, you'll need to be highly motivated, bright, articulate and proactive. Telesales is no place to be shy!
As with any sales role, telesales jobs are extremely target-driven, and you will be expected to meet your monthly KPI's and sales targets. So, if you're determined and never give up, this could be a great environment for you.
What To Expect
A typical basic salary for a telesales executive job is between £15,000 and £20,000. This will then be accompanied by an often uncapped commission structure to boost your monthly income.
Unlike many other sales jobs, you are likely to be office-based, though may have occasional travel to meet clients and present in person. Your working environment is likely to be a vibrant and energetic one, especially in a larger firm where you are part of a large telesales team.
There's also often the possibility of some flexibility, with part time and home based telesales jobs being quite common.
Whether you're new to telesales or experienced in the field, ongoing training is usually provided as standard by your employer. Don't forget, you can also check out the Simply Sales Jobs blog for loads of salestips and advice.
