Area Sales Executive – East Sussex

About us

We are Churchill Retirement PLC, the fastest growing company in the UK retirement house building sector and we’re looking for people like you.

We’re a family-run, privately-owned business and we’re going places. We’re proud of what we do, and the people we work with. We have ambitious growth plans for the future, now employing 600 people and growing all the time.

We pride ourselves on building beautiful, quality, purpose-built one and two bedroom apartments in desirable locations across the UK for those looking for an independent lifestyle in later life. Developments are designed to take away all the hassle and fears that can be experienced by older people and provide security, peace of mind and independence.

We’ve won a host of awards; most recently we have been recognised by The Sunday Times as the 3rd Best Company to Work For and in 2016 we became the first ever retirement living specialist to have been named overall ‘Housebuilder of the Year’ by the WhatHouse? Awards.

About the role

We’re looking for a talented Area Sales Executive, ideally based in the vicinity of Eastbourne, covering areas such as Battle, Brighton, Littlehampton, Peacehaven, Hastings and surrounding areas.

As a Sales Executive you’ll be the person that makes a true difference to the lives of our customers as you introduce them to the world of independent living. You’ll proactively contact customers who have shown an interest in knowing more about our developments and provide the best advice on their purchase of the apartment and the lifestyle. You will be building strong relationships with customers to ensure that they have a hassle free and positive experience from enquiry to move in day.

Based onsite in the Welcome Centre, you will have responsibility for the achievement of sales targets and budgeted selling prices for the development, gaining an understanding of the development, which will be the next place customers call home.

You will have the opportunity to show customers apartments, spending time with each person to truly understand their needs and requirements. You’ll have show home apartments ready and everything at your fingertips – from floor plans and apartment designs to interior offerings and removal companies.

You will work within a dynamic sales team and liaise closely with onsite Marketing, Customer Relations and Construction teams as well as liaising with offsite agents, sales partners, solicitors and progress sales through to completion.

About you

We’d love it if you had previous new homes sales experience, even better if you’ve specialised in the retirement market. However, this is not essential as we provide full training and ongoing investment into you.

We all understand that moving can be a daunting experience – your calming and supportive approach will ensure our Customers are at ease when making important decisions.

The key essential attributes are excellent customer relationship skills and a determination to succeed. You’ll need to be happy working independently, and have a proactive approach to sales and marketing.

You will demonstrate professional and responsible selling at all times, be prepared to get involved at every opportunity, possess excellent interpersonal skills and have previous experience of using IT databases.

You must also hold a valid UK Drivers Licence, in the event you are required to visit customers away from the site.

How you’ll be rewarded

  • Competitive salary plus commission
  • Cash for Car benefit or Company Car option
  • Annual holiday entitlement - 24 days +
  • Bank Holidays
  • Health Screening
  • Day off on your birthday
  • Group Personal Pension Plan
  • Life Assurance
  • Eye Care Reimbursement
  • Land Introduction Bonus
