Sound like you? We have just the thing. In this role, you’ll generate incremental business through prospecting sales activities and build ongoing relationships with our existing customer base. You will ensure that sales leads are followed through, in order for the Operations and Styling teams to implement your brief.So, what will you get up to?

Forming new relationships

From ensuring installations are successfully completed to working with the stylists to ensure briefs are translated correctly on-site, you’ll be working both with the BOWERBIRD Interiors team as well as independently on any given day. You are also the customers’ point of call during installation to work through any questions, and you’ll handle any escalated customer matters in a professional manner.

Quoting & planning
It’s up to you to proactively follow up with upcoming events and with customers, coordinate and conduct effective proposal appointments and to prepare, submit and effectively follow up sales proposals. You’ll ensure the CRM system is updated and admin is finalised promptly.

The Extra Mile
