Contract Type
Full Time
An exciting opportunity to join an established, yet fast growing specialist plantation shutter company. The role of Surveyor primarily involves visiting prospective customers at their homes, demonstrating product and giving design advice and quoting. The surveyor will softly try to close the sale (if appropriate) and will also have responsibility for measuring the windows ready for the order or potential order to go into production.

Responsibilities include:

- Management of own diary and appointment management
- Sales
- Product Demonstration
- Quoting
- Measuring windows
- Follow up and management of pipeline with appropriate reporting
- Processing of order cards ready for production

There is absolutely no cold calling or lead generation required with this role. All leads are warm and are potential customers who have actively requested a home survey from our company.

Personal Qualities

- Self-motivated
- Organised and disciplined with good administration and follow up skills
- Confident but not pushy
- Good communicator and able to sell in a relaxed way through product knowledge and experience rather than hard sell tactics
- Proven sales experience


- Ideally based in and around Bristol or Bath, you will be covering homes in the BA and BS postcodes

Working Pattern

- Given the nature of the job requiring visits to client homes, some evening and Saturday appointments will be required. Whilst the amount of evening and Saturday appointments can be controlled and managed sensibly by the Surveyor themselves, some will be essential and this role would not be suitable for someone who was unable to do this.


- Full 3 months training given on all aspects of product knowledge and measuring

Package and Benefits

- ??16,000 basic salary
- 3% commission on all sales. Combined OTE of ??27k per annum based on ??30,000 sales per month. This is uncapped and earnings potential beyond this figure are both realistic and achievable.

- Fuel card for Business Use

- 20 days annual leave
