Community Engagement Executive

Full time, permanent

Basic Salary: £23,000 – £25,000 D.O.E

Attractive commission with achievable targets: Uncapped, £7500 commission expected in year one

Having secured significant private investment, we are now planning a major fibre-to-the property build (FTTP) across communities in the East of England, connecting thousands of homes to full fibre broadband.

We are looking for individuals with the creativity, drive, determination and sales ability to help the company achieve its goals.

This is a dynamic, exciting environment to work within and will provide significant opportunities for the right people, with the right skills, to develop and grow with the company.

To support our growth toward becoming the leading broadband network and services provider in the area, we are looking for talented Community Engagement Executives to deliver sales by engaging with targeted areas.

Reporting to the Sales Manager, your prime focus will be to drive engagement, make sure everyone knows about our brand and deliver leads in the targeted areas in which service is planned to be delivered.

You will be responsible for generating leads and interest in our fibre project in each village.  You will need to work closely with the local community, drive awareness, and help the Territory Sales Executive to prepare for meetings and working alongside the wider sales team to ensure a successful sales process is achieved. You will be targeted against the volume of leads that are delivered to the sales team. The role does not require you to understand the details of broadband, only the key differences between our service and what is already available, and what advantages it offers to communities. Full training will be provided.

Whilst this is a predominantly field based role you will have to be able to attend meetings at our offices (near Colchester).
