Consultant vacancy: Leicester/Coventry

Self- Employed Sales Consultant: Coventry/Leicester

Here at Plumbs, we've been creating bespoke home furnishings for over 60 years - and now we're looking to expand our sales team in the Coventry & Leicester area. As the UK's leading provider of made-to-measure sofa covers, curtains and handcrafted reupholstery, we generate over 60,000 UK sales opportunities each year through national and digital advertising and as a self-employed Plumbs Sales Consultant you will be responsible for following up on all customer enquiries within your allocated postcode area.

As a self-employed agent, you will manage your own diary - offering the flexibility to suit your lifestyle. Your key role will be to assist and advise customers about our products and services to provide the home transformation they are seeking. Full training on our products and processes will be provided, with ongoing support from regional management and head office when required.

This is a great opportunity for a motivated and enthusiastic individual to build their own local business with the support of a national firm behind them. With leads generated for you, no cold calling is required, and you will enjoy the job satisfaction of helping customers make a real difference to their home and living space.

Commission: Variable (OTE £30,000+)

Key Requirements: All candidates must have a full UK driving license, access to a vehicle for attending appointments and a iPad from which to run our sales app. For your benefit and ours, living on or local to the sales area you are applying for is preferred. 

Though it is beneficial to have prior experience in sales, we welcome applications from all those with a passion for people facing roles and self-motivated, friendly attitude. Interest in home interiors and design is beneficial, along with a familiarity with using an iPad.

Benefits: In addition to flexible working and all leads being provided, we offer the support you would expect of a national company with in-house customer service teams to handle queries, a supportive management structure and regular check ins to help better support you in your sales. We operate frequent competitions and an established bonus structure for you to maximise your income.

If you wish to apply for this role, please contact Emma Singleton on [email protected] with details of any prior experience and why you think you'd be well suited to this role.

“A very satisfied customer”
Our consultant was very knowledgeable and explained everything to our satisfaction. She was also a friendly person to deal with. The product met our expectations in the workmanship, design and appearance. We are extremely pleased with the outcome and the service from first visit to the fittings.
Marilyn Lovewell
“Absolutely thrilled”
Absolutely thrilled with our new covers. Susan could not have been more helpful from her excellent advice, helping us to choose what was right for us and explaining the process to the professional way. She spent time fitting the new covers and making sure we were totally satisfied. The added bonus was that the covers were delivered so quickly. Would highly recommend Plumbs.
“Delighted with Plumbs!”
We were delighted with our new suite covers by Plumbs. From a very positive experience with our Plumbs rep, Barbara, who was experienced, polite, warm and patient, to Plumbs themselves, who were generous with their offers and fast in their delivery. We thought the quality of the product superb and were super impressed with the accuracy of the cutting and quality of the stitching. Really impressive workmanship. Thank you.

“Excellent service from start to finish”
From the initial 'survey' to the collection, makeup and delivery, I felt like a valued customer and was kept updated at all times. Delivery was completed within the agreed time scale and the sofa and footstool covers were finished to a high standard. Highly recommended.
