Are you someone with strong customer service experience? Do you find it easy building relationships with people? If this is you, you might just be perfect for the Sales Assistant (Telesales/Counter) role we are looking for at our branch. 

What you’ll do
We are a trade-focused business, so a  large part of your day will involve working directly with the customers and creating a personalised experience. This will include making phone calls to new prospects and current account holders, creating a social media presence for the Benchmarx Kitchens & Joinery brand and coming up with marketing campaigns that we can use to attract new customers and being that product expert. .  

Is this you?
This is a great opportunity to join a business that promotes personal development and supports career progression. You don’t need experience within the industry to excel in this role, all you need is an innovative, forward-thinking mind and the ability to pick up the phone and manage lasting relationships with local tradesmen.
We are looking for someone who is forward-thinking, who uses their initiative to generate a strong new business pipeline.

What’s in it for you?
At Benchmarx, we have strong family values and believe in getting the right work/life balance, meaning you’ll only work during the week and 4 hours every other Saturday. We make sure that hard work is rewarded and as an inclusive, family environment we want every team member to be recognised for the work they do. 

We’ll also equip you with a benefits package that grows as you grow with the company:

        * Competitive performance related bonus
        * Save-as-you-earn scheme
        * Buy-as-you-earn scheme
        * Contributory pension scheme
        * Colleague discount across a variety of Group businesses including special discounts across our Trade Merchanting businesses

A bit about us
For 15 years Benchmarx have offered a high quality range of kitchens and joinery products backed up by excellent service.  But what really sets us apart is a company culture of being great people to work with, whether as colleagues or with our valued customers.  With over 150 branches UK wide, we are proud to be part of Travis Perkins.  


We’re driving to become a truly inclusive employer. We want everyone to be at their best and it’s our ambition that everyone within our Group feels safe, welcome and confident to be their authentic selves. 
You be you, it makes us, us.
