To support your onsite teams you’ll need to be prepared to work two Saturdays every month and some evenings as required. You’ll be an innovator who strives to make the best solutions work. Whether you’re managing key stakeholder relationships, agreeing on sales and marketing strategies, or leading your team through change, your tenacity will be vital to our business’ success.
This role is demanding and is crucial to our long term success. Driven and commercially astute, you’ll have experience of sales in a property setting ideally new homes, with knowledge of the property sales process including Shared Ownership.
