    Location Lincoln

    Industry Sales

    Contract Full Time

    Job Type Permanent

    Salary £30,000 - £40,000

    Deadline 28/02/2018


    We are offering a unique opportunity for a sales professional with the hunger to make a name for themselves in one of the UK’s largest boat sales companies. Burton Waters Boat Sales has offices in Lincoln and Ipswich and we are pleased to announce that we have an exciting opportunity in our boat sales team in Lincoln for a keen Yacht Broker / Experienced Sales Professional.  We are looking for an enthusiastic individual from a successful sales background, ideally with a passion for luxury products.

    The Role

    Alongside our existing Yacht Brokers, you will be responsible for the selling of new and used boats from stock and our brokerage listings and you will be responsible for achieving your own personal targets as well as working as a team member to achieve the overall company target.  You will not only be responsible for the selling of boats but also acquiring stock and brokerage listings.  An important element of the role as Yacht Broker is to manage and develop your customer relationships, even after the sale has completed.

    Qualities and Requirements for the Role:

    • Confident sales professional
    • Ability to build relationships with people from all walks of life
    • Listen to customers’ needs and offer the benefits that suit their needs
    • Being able to think on your feet
    • Ability to Learn product knowledge
    • Team work ethic
    • Strong organisational skills
    • Flexibility to work weekends and Bank Holidays
    • Be computer literate

    Whilst a knowledge of boats is an advantage, it is not essential, although we would expect the successful applicant certainly to have a keen interest in boating.  We would also consider a trainee for this role for an exceptional candidate.

    You should be able to work on your own initiative, be proactive, comfortable with customers of all types and have a real hunger to succeed.  Regular weekend work and occasional time away at boat shows will be required.
