Sales Agent/Student Consultant

Remuneration:R7500 per month Basic plus commission 
Location:Cape Town, Gardens
Education level:Matric
Job level:Junior/Mid

Job description

Be part of a small sales team advising potential students over the phone, email or instant chat. We are offering international professional business and finance courses and your job is to help students select the right course and help them get started. Yes, it's a sales position, but we're in the business of enhancing lives and enriching people's careers, so we don't think of it as selling but rather advising and helping. Your job is to help people take that next step to growing their careers.

Your primary function is to answer the phone and emails from potential students who want to know more about our business and finance courses, to consult with the student and finalise their purchase. Your daily tasks consist of follow-up calls, emails, face-to-face consulting and answering student queries.

I know this sounds like a really nice job and a fun place to work but do the self-check before you apply. We want this to end well so be sure you understand who we are looking for. 

Self-check questions: Do you love engaging with people? Even the confused ones, the soft-spoken ones, the aggressive ones, the angry ones, the lonely ones and the needy ones? Have you been told you explain things really well? Are your emails really clear and well-written? If you answered yes to all these questions, please go ahead and send us your CV and short motivation letter.

CV tips:

  • Keep it to a maximum of four pages or it will be too long to read.
  • Start with your current position at the top in your 'work experience' section.
  • Always state your reason for leaving a previous job.
  • State duration or length of employment in each position so I don't have to work it out.
Motivation letter tips:
  • Your letter must highlight any experience that is relevant to the position you're applying for.
  • Try to avoid telling me that you're passionate and hard working. I'll just assume that. Rather tell me what you're really good at. What is your special skill? Tell me what your current boss or colleagues say about you.
  • Spelling and grammatical errors will be frowned upon.
