Hi and thanks for applying for the Design & Sales Consultant position with Custom Outdoor Living. My name is Matt Goodie and I’m the owner of Custom Outdoor Living.

Okay, right now I’m going to tell you a little bit about the position and what you’ll be doing, and then if you’re interested in working with us, I’ll get you to call us on the telephone number below to leave your details so that we can get in contact with you.

Firstly about our business:

Custom Outdoor Living Office and CarsCustom Outdoor Living is a division of a well-established Building Company known as Pergolas R Us who has provided close to 5000 Melbourne family’s outdoor entertainment and carports over the last 20 years.

We are based in Hallam and we are a company that services all of Melbourne.

Our sales team currently consists of 1 person and we want to add another professional to our team.

We’re growing and we’re looking for your help in the sales and design division of the business so we can all continue to prosper by increasing our already high referral success.

We’re looking for a special sales & design person to join us in the fun of growing our business and reaching closer to all our mutual goals.

Next, your position:

Design and Sales Consultant - FrostYou’ll be involved in all aspects of sales and design, as well as customer service. You also must be able to work on your own, as well as within a team environment.

Specifically, this position is for a person that has designing and selling knowledge of pergolas, decks, Alfresco’s sunrooms and small extension work.

You’ll have the ‘knowledge’ of a builder and the ‘desire’ of a salesperson.

The first area is being able to design projects.

Being a Custom Outdoor living specialist you will need to be able to come up with concepts on the spot and within the clients home as well being able to give or clients realistic building cost estimations.

This is a key element that we’re looking for and something that you’ll be tested on if you make it through to the next step? So you’ll need drafting skills, a broad understanding of building and of course, and excellent problem solving ability.

The second area is being able to sell and to exceed your sales budgets.

Where will you be working?

There will be weekly sales training sessions at our head office in Hallam, and then the normal day to day in house appointments at our potential client’s homes. This could be anywhere in Melbourne, so you must have a current license and travel to your appointments.

Does Custom Outdoor Living have a good name in the market?

What’s most important to me is that you exceed your sales budget. If you can exceed your sales budget I don’t mind what hours you work. However, if you’re behind your budget and you need to work more to achieve them then that is what you’ll have to do.

The position is paid on your performance.

And of course, once you’ve started you’ll have a 3 month probationary period for you to get to know us, and for us to get to know you.

This is a role that requires you to interact with not only our clients, but with our team on a daily basis – so you’ll need to be great at creating relationships with people.

The skills you’ll need to have are:

  • Creative design and drawing skills
  • Sound building experience
  • Awesome sales skills with a strong sales background
  • The ability to problem solve
  • Excellent listening skills
  • Excellent phone skills
  • Good computer skills – MS Office software (Outlook, Word, Web email etc)
  • Self-motivated with the ability to work alone
  • Have the support of your family
  • Take ownership of your position
  • A strong desire to be successful in this field
  • To maintain a healthy level of fitness
  • Be a great time and goal planner

It’s also essential that you have excellent problem solving skills and can prioritize working processes.

Plus your ‘personal’ qualities are very important to us. Here’s a quick list:

  • You are a positive person that loves making sales and exceeding budgets.
  • You love people, and you’re warm and friendly with clients and fellow team members.
  • You are passionate about working, love being busy and you love ‘going the extra mile’with everything you do.
  • You take pride in your work. You are accurate and systematic.
  • You are an ‘on-time’
  • You present yourself professionally at all times.
  • You are honest and can work without close supervision and initiative.
  • You are a great ‘team’
  • You have an ‘I-can-do’ approach to life and your work
