As an Apprentice Sales Specialists, you'll work to sell our products and services to our business customers. These might be small companies, or they might be big FTSE 100 companies with a presence across the world.

We've got three different sales areas who cover different customers from different industries: Technology, Life Sciences & Business Services, Resources, Manufacturing & Logistics, Banking and Financial Services. Each area has its own specialist knowledge of a specific portfolio of products, which helps us tailor our services to specific customers.

Our product range is pretty vast, covering anything and everything from networking and voice solutions, to cyber security and new technologies.
  • Each sales area works closely with our account management and deals teams (which you'll be a part of), to help acquire new business and defend and grow existing business, as well as increase the awareness of our products and services and create a healthy sales pipeline
  • You'll work with our account management teams on small opportunities, and with our deals teams for larger opportunities to design, price and sell global solutions. With exposure to so many different aspects of sales, you'll be able to find out what you like, and what you don't
  • You'll also learn lots of new skills, from managing customers and internal stakeholders, to negotiation, building rapport, and how to harness that entrepreneurial spirit

With all your new skills, you'll be able to take your sales career in any direction you choose.
