Design & Sales Consultant Position

We are looking for a Design & Sales Consultant with great Designing skills for Pergolas, Carports, Decks, Gazebos and small extensions with a sound sales history.

About Us and the Position

Pergolas R Us is a well established Building Company known for providing great services in outdoor entertainment areas in thousands of Australian homes over the last 20 years. We are based in Lynbrook and we are a company that services all of Melbourne.

Our sales team currently consists of 3 people who are all sales professionals.

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 some special sales & design ‘guns’ to join us in the fun and the work of growing our business and reaching closer to all our mutual goals.

Your Role

You’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 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. Designing the projects on the spot, inside the clients’ homes 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, excellent problem solving ability.

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

Where You Will Be Working

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

Your Work Hours

Your position and the hours you work is totally up to you but to be successful in this field we generally find that you will have to be flexible and be available when our clients are home.

On average you would be required to work most evenings and a Saturday.

(The most important time is the early evening (you’ll be home by 8.30 pm) as that is when your potential clients (i.e. both partners) will be home).

What’s most important to us is that you exceed your sales budget. If you can exceed your sales budget we 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’s what you’ll have to do.

The position is paid on your performance.

How much will you earn? That’s up to you.

We want you to flourish – not just survive, as we are growing and the opportunities that come with the business growth can be yours if you have the skills and the personality ‘fit’ for our business.

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.

Skills Required

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

Awesome design and drawing skills

Excellent listening skills

Awesome sales skills with a strong sales background

Excellent phone skills

Good computer skills – MS Office software (Outlook, Word, Web – as we are increasingly becoming a paperless business)

Self motivated with the ability to work alone

Have the support of your family

A strong desire to be successful in this field

To maintain a health level of fitness

Be a great time and goal planner

Steve & Andrea Crawcour

To all “the crew” – an excellent job.
You were the only company that listened to our requirements and produced a verandah plan to meet those.

It looks tremendous – much better than we’d hoped and with two young children, I’m sure it’ll see many years of constant use.

Many, many thanks…

Kath & John Inns

We were very pleased with the work done for us by the company.

You may be assured that it will blend with the property and looks as you may have envisioned it.

All the workers who were on our property were courteous and fast at their job.
