Full Time

I am working with an award winning health club brand in the Sunderland area, and they now have an opening immediately for a sales consultant to join their membership sales team.

To get offered the job you'll have to be passionate about health and fitness and sport in general, and someone who'll thrive working in a dynamic and fast paced environment. We need someone that is pro-active and does not need to be micro-managed. We want ambitious candidates who will put in the hours and the work needed to hit target. You will need to be great on the phone and have a natural ability to build rapport and personalise the benefits of joining for each and every member focusing on their individual needs and goals. You'll be explaining all about the different fitness equipment and innovations, the huge range of fitness classes and all other facilities that can help them achieve their goals.

You will benefit from plenty of people who will walk in and enquire and there are always high levels of referrals from existing members so this is not a cold calling sales job. However, make no mistake we're looking for proactive and positive individuals who will go out into the local area and win new business and generate plenty of new leads and sales. This will involve organising and promotional events in and around the local area targeting the big corporate offices as well as local businesses, residents and commuters.

We're not looking for previous experience as extensive training will be provided so we're very open to talking to candidates from any background but you'll ideally have a minimum of 2 years' experience in a role that demands great customer service, good IT skills, teamwork and a real drive to be successful. You will have a strong personality, be organised and adaptable in your approach to customers.

We know that these are much sought after opportunities so we will only be able to get in touch with candidates who really do meet the above criteria. You will be working a variety of shifts including some weekends, and benefits of the job include free gym membership for you and your immediate family, and the potential to earn lots of COMMISSION!!! You will also benefit from a highly acclaimed sales training programme and there are outstanding career development opportunities to progress into sales management.

If you do meet the criteria then we'll be in touch straight away to arrange an immediate interview.
