This is a B2B target driven sales role with some account management and will require candidates with a combination of both telesales and face- to- face sales experience.

You will be provided with all the training, support and guidance required to ensure you become an expert in your field. All the equipment you need including an extensive client database will be at your disposal. This position is home-based so you will need a suitable environment from which to deliver a professional level of service to customers.
