Job Description
This role acts as the first contact for potential students at a BSC Education college. As a result, this is in many ways the most important interaction the student will have before their course begins.  

The role of Sales Consultant combines sales techniques with a consultative and mentoring approach, to provide the required level of support to allow the prospective student to make the right choice - that BSC offers the right course in the right location for them!

This role would suit a person that has consultative sales experience previously. This could be gained in the tourism or hospitality sector or other sectors where a consultative approach is required to close a sale.

Duties of the role include, but are not limited to, those listed below.

Sales Focus
  1. To prioritise ‘warm’ leads and prepare for each call
  2. To take a prospective student through a series of questions based on their initial enquiry in order to provide them with relevant and pertinent information to make a decision.
  3. To maintain detailed call notes on each conversation and remain knowledgeable about the prospective student
  4. Understand the stage the prospective student is at before starting a follow up call.
  5. To guide prospective students through a course and location evaluation based on their requirements
  6. To provide support in decision making and offer to send additional information as required during the call or as part of an arranged follow up
  7. To confirm that course and location (close the sale) as part of the call and complete necessary paperwork/take payment or to provide information so that the prospective student can complete the application themselves (follow up to confirm required)
Brand, Marketing & Communications
  1. Identifying market opportunities based on conversations with students and share this insight during weekly team meetings
  2. Representing BSC at trade shows, exhibitions and events as required by the needs of the business
  3. Responsibility for ensuring the BSC Brand is correctly represented through an in-depth knowledge of the product
  4. Interacting with eh wider BSC team via Yammer (sharing success stories etc)
