Perhaps you have some exposure to the shipping industry already (e.g working as a Freight Forwarder) or you already have sales experience within shipping? Interested in a sales role but want to ditch the cold calling?
Manpower are looking for an Inside Sales Consultant required for a Global Shipping company based in Basildon.
Working for a global company that operate with 300+ offices within 150+ Countries, you will essentially be responsible for selling space within shipping containers, for that container to then be shipped around the world. This is NOT an outbound cold calling job - this is all about converting inbound enquiries from new and existing customers to bookings. Naturally there would be an expectation to up-sell with these clients off the back of their inbound enquiry to maximise revenue.
With full training offered this is a role that it is likely to take circa 12 months to really understand the role (and duties). It should be in year two that you can really feel you have the knowledge to develop your experience and career. As a result of this, this role is only going to be of interest to those that are looking to develop a career.
Working in a direct team of 3, this role has come about due to an existing member of the team effectively having a promotion and moving into a newly created team.
This is not a heavily targeted role - this is all about your conversation rates of the inbound enquiry`s.
Whilst personality and showing the right attributes are often used clichés, this is actually very true for this company. You will naturally be expected to show a willingness to learn and show that you are interested in this job for the right reasons rather than "just" any job. Your willingness to help others and be a team player are also expected to be on point - and this plays a part in your potential yearly bonus!
Annual Salary on offer:
£20,000 - £23,000
