London, UK
Showroom sales consultant/designer
at Go Modern

Go Modern is seeking a showroom sales consultant/designer to join its team in London.

We are looking for a retail and trade sales designer, to join our friendly showroom in Chelsea, London. Our brands include Bonaldo, Cattelan, Porada, Molteni, Bontempi, Lema, Novamobili, Tribu and many more and we also sell systems furniture (wardrobes, wall units etc) so it would be helpful, but not essential, if you have experience with these. Training will be provided if not.

About you

We are looking for a sociable team player, who enjoys working in this industry, who can get on well with our small team and who will do what we need (within reason, but it can be a varied role). 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 specifically looking for CAD designers, but if you have experience using CAD software that would be very helpful. Equally, we are happy to have you learn as you go if you have experience in the type of furniture we sell.

Requirements

The successful candidate would start almost immediately. As this is a role we would like filled quickly we, unfortunately, can’t do much product training. You will therefore need experience selling high-end made-to-order furniture. The occasional site visit may be required and you will sometimes need to go to Italy or Belgium (outdoor furniture) for product training etc.

An understanding of this market is a must: we have over 30 brands of products with hundreds of options 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

The role

This is not a home-working role, so you’ll need to be reasonably local. There’s bike/e-scooter storage and we are about 12 minutes walk from the District line and the London Overground. There is definitely the opportunity to incorporate Interior Design in the future, as we will be launching this service to our clients – though to start with we are looking for 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.

Renumeration will be based on your experience.

Hours are 9am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday (with one day off during the week) and Saturday 11am to 4pm. We may also stay open for our trade clients, until 7pm one night during the week, probably Tuesday or Wednesday, but are currently not.

We have a team and individual commission scheme (in addition to an industry-standard salary). We have a company pension scheme 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.
