Job Description

A busy and fast paced business with great benefits, and plenty of opportunities for career progression – join BSS as an Internal Sales Assistant and share our success and good times with a hard-working, friendly bunch of people.

The role:
You’ll  work  within  the  branch sales team, dealing directly with customers to maximise sales at every opportunity, working to  expand  our  customer base by helping to identify and develop new accounts.  On a day to day basis you will be handling customer orders and enquiries by phone and email on a frequent basis.  Most of our customers are regulars, so you will build up friendly relationships by giving great customer service which will encourage repeat business.  You will communicate with the team and suppliers to ensure a smooth transaction for the customer from start to finish, making sure their order is delivered on time and in full.  You will be working in a busy sales office environment, but there is no cold calling involved.

What we are looking for:
Ideally you will have previous experience in a similar phone based sales role with great customer service skills and the ability to build relationships with a diverse range of customers and colleagues.  You will be self-motivated, enthusiastic and organised, with good numerical and computer skills.  Product knowledge is key to the role but full product training will be provided.
