Who are we ?

Gibbs & Dandy – Internal Sales Advisor

Competitive Salary - Based: Bedford, Bedfordshire

Gibbs & Dandy – National Merchant of the Year 2018 / One to Watch Employer in the Top 100 Best Companies to work for 2019

As an Internal Sales Advisor, you’ll be the face (and voice!) of the business, often the first point of contact a customer has with us. You’ll chat with customers throughout the day, both on the phone and in person, helping them find the materials they need for their projects and converting these in to orders.

You’ll get the opportunity to build relationships, negotiate prices and generate sales each day. You'll also be handling cash transactions, placing direct sales orders, organising delivery times and keeping customers informed once their orders are placed, all whilst giving customers a fantastic service.

Working for Gibbs & Dandy will mean you have no two days the same. You will have the opportunity to support and advise customers on our extensive products and service range, no matter how big or small their project is! You will value and take pride in striving to be an integral part of the Gibbs & Dandy mission to be ‘The Most Trusted Merchant in Town’.

We’ve been in the industry for 175 years, so we can proudly say we know a thing or two about providing our customers with the tools and materials they need to complete their building projects. The Gibbs & Dandy team are a family; we value, respect and occasionally have the odd joke at the expense of each other, but what family doesn’t? All this makes us who we are – a close knit team on a mission. But we couldn’t give our customers a service they can trust without our people, and this is where you step in.

You’ll be joining our Gibbs & Dandy Bedford branch. This branch is a well-established and busy branch, with a friendly team who work hard to offer a great service and excellent product knowledge. 

So, what are we looking for?

First and foremost, we always want to recruit talented people that align well with our values and way of working; this means that we are open to applications from all Saint-Gobain businesses and would welcome you to apply if you can demonstrate the following key skills:

  • Experience of working in an inbound sales role, with a curious and proactive approach
  • Motivation to secure and increase sales orders
  • Knowledge of building materials would be an advantage, but not essential
  • A genuine enthusiasm for dealing with customers, and a ‘customer first’ attitude
  • The ability to build strong relationships internally and externally
  • A positive team player
  • The ability to organise and manage workload well

The world of work is changing, and at Saint-Gobain we are open to new ways of working in order to attract talented people to our business. We understand that everyone has different needs and commitments. Therefore, we are very open to discuss any flexible requirement or need that you may have for this role. We can’t guarantee to meet all requests for flexibility when we are recruiting. But, we promise to listen.
