There are opportunities across the UK to join us as a Customer Development Representative and you’ll quickly see that our sales careers are different. You see, with us, sales is about variety.

  • A solutions focused mind set with effective problem solving skills
  • To be capable of spotting and championing new opportunities 
  • The aptitude to establish and maintain effective relationships with customers and gain their trust and respect
