Go Modern is looking for a sales consultant with experience in European furniture to join its friendly showroom in Chelsea, London.
You will be personable, well-spoken and presented, and confident – happy to deal with our clients, even when they are not happy, (who also include interior designers and architects) without being fazed.
We are not looking for CAD designers, but if you have experience using CAD software that would be helpful.
The successful candidate would start as soon as possible. As this is a role we would like filled quickly we, unfortunately, can’t do much product training. You will therefore need plenty of experience selling high end made to order Italian, French, or German furniture (dining, living and bedroom), as well as made to measure wardrobes, wall units etc. The occasional site visit may be required and you will sometimes need to go to Italy or Belgium (outdoor furniture) for product training etc.
Great product knowledge is a must: we have over 30 brands of products with hundreds of options, and so you will need to know your way around a European price book, not to mention knowing the merits of the different finishes, how to work with different fabrics, and how to make sure everything works well together.
You will also need to be proficient in:
- Microsoft Office (especially Excel and of course Outlook)
- website e-commerce software (for order entry and small product information changes where needed)
Experience in Photoshop, 3Dmax, FileMaker/another CRM, and Dropbox are all great to have but not essential. If you are a whiz in social media and would like that to be part of your role that’s no problem too.
This is not a home working role, in fact, we are replacing two staff who are working from home now, so you’ll need to be reasonably local. There’s bike/escooter storage and we are about 12 minutes walk from the District line and the London Overground.
We are looking for a sociable team player, who enjoys working in this industry and who can get on well in our small team, will do what we need (within reason, but it can be a varied role).
We aren’t looking for interior designers, rather, motivated sales consultants who enjoy design and can help advise some of our clients. You’ll need to be computer savvy too – a lot of what we do requires you to use various IT systems.
Hours are 10 am to 6 pm Monday to Friday (with one day off during the week) and Saturday 11 am to 4 pm. We are also planning to stay open until 7 pm one night during the week, probably Tuesday or Wednesday, but are currently not.
We have a company pension scheme, will be putting in place a bonus system later this year (in addition to your already agreed salary), and have a lovely showroom in a great location, with plenty of potential customers – though we are not a ‘shop’ and do not get masses of visitors.
