Elevate are delighted to be continuing their partnership with Camelot and on their behalf, are seeking to deliver a team of support Retail Sales Executive’s to help drive and deliver their on-going retailer sales & training programme.

This role will involve working for Elevate on behalf of Camelot and will be primarily within the independent retail environment.  The role will be for a fixed-term period of 6 months.  As an RSE you will be working independently with responsibility for delivering retailer sales & education, excellent customer service and merchandising support.

If you are seeking a position which provides you with the opportunity to engage with, motivate, train and sell into independent retailers and you can demonstrate that you have keen attention to detail, can exhibit good planning, organisation, time management and motivational skills, this could be the challenge you are looking for.

We are looking to attract candidates who can demonstrate the characteristics that enable you to cultivate good relationships quickly and effectively and who have the aptitude required to plan, manage and structure their working day.  You must have the ability to communicate and influence at store manager level within the independent sector and to step into a role and make an immediate impact.  If you believe that you have the right skills for this role, we would like to hear from you. Ideally you should have:

  • Previous field sales experience
  • Strong sales and commercial acumen
  • You’re a people person and confident speaking to retailers
  • Experience of face to face selling – and you’re pretty good at it!
  • Good with numbers and your able to analyse data and provide insight to customers
  • A full UK driving licence and flexibility to travel across your territory

The hours of work reflect the nature of this role and whilst your core hours will be 37.5 hours per week, we are looking for individuals who have the flexibility to work hours appropriate for the job role and function and who are happy to travel.

It is a requirement of this role that you are available for an imminent start and are able to commit to the full duration of the activity, hold a full, clean driving licence and can ideally demonstrate experience of working within the independent retail sector.  Full training ahead of commencement will be given to the successful candidates.

Interviews for these positions will be undertaken immediately on receipt of suitable and relevant applications.
