Cookbook Salesperson(s) / Sales Executive

Home Based in Essex, you would have your own sales patch around your home address, typically covering a third of the county

Flexible, part-time time roles with high earnings on a self-employed basis

Love food? Enjoy meeting people? Perhaps you have school age children or you’re early-retired?

Does a fun, flexible, independent role, visiting businesses face-to-face across your own sales patch, appeal to you, selling our smart cookbooks to food retailers and lifestyle store?

You’ll be a keen home cook and food lover, with a good career background, ideally in sales or catering. A naturally smiley, happy person, you’ll need to enjoy talking to people and building a rapport, chatting about all things food and drink-related, so you will probably love eating out and cooking at home for fun.

As this is a face-to-face sales role on the road, your own reliable car is essential and you must have proven references.

They publish smart county cookbooks across East Anglia such as our recent Essex Feast and Norfolk Table titles (with Suffolk Feast 2 out this summer).

Their team of self-employed salespersons typically work 15 - 20 hours per week and they receive a very high commission package for copies sold. It is ideal for parents of school age children as there are no fixed shifts, it can flex around school hours and holidays for example. Energy and enthusiasm is more important than time availability.

You would have your own sales patch around your home address, typically covering a third of the county.

Commission is paid at £45 per box of 10 books sold on our standard pricing so it is a very good income. Please note we do not cover expenses so you would need to pay your own motoring and office costs.

The role calls for a positive attitude and relationship-building skills plus great time management, route planning and lots of charisma and confidence face-to-face and over the phone.
