What you’ll be doing

Working closely with the rest of the team you’ll create a warm welcome for all our customers and establish what they are looking for. You’ll use sales tools to create kitchen designs that delight customers and deliver or exceed your targets, through maximising all opportunities for achieving sales on our products.
