We are looking for a Junior Sales agent to sell tenants insurance to new movers who have used our platform in the past.

You will initially join our development team where you will work through the training programme and learn the foundations you will need to become a successful telesales agent alongside our business, insurance industry and market.

Therefore, you MUST have the motivation and willingness to learn and take on new challenges in order to succeed.

Targets are not purely based on sales but also activity and behaviours, e.g. meeting, and ideally exceeding, QA pass rates. You will be rewarded with a newly structured commission scheme based on these combined targets.

Profile of the Role:

  • A ‘can do’ attitude with a passion to get into sales
  • Keen to learn and have the ability to learn new processes and skills quickly but efficiently
  • Possess great organisational skills and time management to get the most out of each day - you’ll be switching between various IT systems so it’s important you are organised
  • You must have a positive attitude and a resilient attitude - maintaining this throughout the whole day.

Why you'll love being a Goodlordian:

🚀 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: we encourage Goodlordians to make use of their unlimited time off to enjoy the world, recharge and reboot (subject to passing probation and fair usage principles). 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

🤩 Our team: we’re an energetic, sociable, and talented bunch who are super passionate about what we do and determined to make a difference. We’re all in it together, we learn from each other, we’re genuine and we don’t have time for politics

How to Apply

Starting a career in sales is exciting (we think so anyway!) and we really want to get to know more about you so would love to hear more from you in the form of a short cover note.
Please note we are not expecting war and peace here, hence why we are calling it a cover note and not cover letter!

Please submit your CV and answer the following questions in the 'Cover Letter' section of the application form:

  • What most excites you about a career in sales?
  • Why does this role at Goodlord interest you?
  • What will be the first thing you buy with your first commission pay?
  • Anything else you think we need to know about you that is not on your CV?
