Position description

Gibbs & Dandy –Senior Internal Sales Advisor– Based in Farnborough

Hello and thank you for your interest in our role!

As an Internal Sales Supervisor, 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 into orders.

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

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

We’ve been in the industry for over 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.

 

 

So, what are we looking for?

  • Previous sales experience, preferably within a builders merchant though not essential
  • A genuine enthusiasm for dealing with customers, and a ‘customer 1st’ attitude
  • The ability to build strong relationships internally and externally
  • A positive team player 
  • The ability to organise and manage workload well

 What will we offer you?

As part of Saint-Gobain (‘Top Employer UK and globally’ 2016-2019), here at Gibbs & Dandy we offer:

  • A competitive salary
  • A discretionary bonus scheme
  • Opportunities for career progression and development
  • 31 days’ holiday (including bank holidays), plus the option to buy or sell additional days
  • A defined contribution pension scheme
  • Great discounts across high street chains, online stores and holiday agents
  • Saint-Gobain Life Assurance Scheme
  • Access to a leading health and wellbeing portal

 

 

Who are we ?
