Graduate Sales Support Executive

The role of the Graduate Sales Support Executive is to help the National Accounts team. This will predominantly be in the form of providing administrative support across a varied portfolio of customers and providing a point of contact for our network of offices.

    • Working with the National Account Managers on marketing plans for our customers
    • Monitoring and chasing our offices to ensure booking fulfilment
