Are you a Sales Legend?  
A sales professional who wants to now step up and make a difference?
Then we are looking for you...

We are lucky enough to be an intentionally remote business, working from home full time, but getting together for team meetings and any excuse for a social.

Ideally our new recruit would be local-ish to the Ashford (Kent) area with a space at home suitable for focus and productivity.

Salary – We are looking to offer £35,000 - £40,000 basic for this role (doe) - with 25 days holiday, pension, WFH reimbursement and unlimited commission.

We would expect your on target OTE to be in the region of £70,000+

Hours – You will be required to work 8 hours per day (7.5 on a Friday) but when is up to you. We run ‘glide time’ between 07:30-19:30 so as long as you are there for when the business needs you, the rest is up to you.
