Job Description

📍 Location hybrid at our office in Kelham Island 3 days a week, the other 2 from home

Our mission:

  • One in five people in the UK rent their homes. The Goodlord Group's mission? To provide them with the best renting experience in the world 🌎
  • We started Goodlord because we wanted to make renting simple and transparent for everyone involved: the agent, the landlord, and the tenant. We knew Generation Rent would lead to more tenants, with higher digital expectations and we were confident we could provide a solution 🏠
  • Like all scale-ups it’s been a bit of a rollercoaster journey, but we’re now stronger than ever, with around 3,000 letting agents using the platform, exciting and varied products and 350 Goodlordians supporting the mission! 💚

The Opportunity:

  • Pipeline generation and driving new business. This is the bread and butter of the role, what you’ll be responsible for and targeted on
  • Growing our customer base and opening conversations with new customers
  • Analysing our market database and teasing out the best leads
  • Working cross-functionally with all teams to help create the ultimate Goodlord Customer experience

What we need from you:

  • A proven track record of pipeline generation and sales success in a high transaction volume environment and/or a solid background in residential lettings
  • Have a good phone manner – you can establish rapport and trust with people quickly and effectively without being face-to-face
  • Are commercially minded and love working with targets (and over-delivering on them, we did say your drive was the limit!)
  • Are a resourceful, motivated teammate with a competitive spirit

What's in it for you:

  • 🚀 Grow with Goodlord: your development is important to us. Have a goal in mind? Share it with us and you can use your £1000 annual development fund to support it. We guarantee you’ll learn loads and develop both personally and professionally at Goodlord too!
  • 💕 Your well-being matters: bi-weekly coaching with Sanctus to provide Goodlordians with a safe place to talk and support your mental health
  • 🌴 Unlimited holiday and flexible time off (subject to passing probation & fair usage policies): we encourage Goodlordians to make use of their unlimited time off to enjoy the world, recharge, and reboot. We also offer time off for volunteering and training, so you can give back to the community and pursue your passions
  • 🤗 Supporting your family: we offer Goodlordians of all genders a generous 3 months of fully-paid time off to look after their new arrivals
