Sales Support Executive
About the role
In this challenging role, you will spend your time supporting our external Broker partners as well as working very closely with other key internal stakeholders with Arval. You will have responsibility for a selection of brokers and will manage and support them with anything sales related, working towards achieving your monthly sales target. From generating new business from campaigns to renewing and extending existing contracts, you will provide your brokers with the high standards of customer service they expect. You will handle a real mix of proactive and reactive work with pace, accuracy and humour. In addition, you will provide a full sales administration support that includes quotes and sales administration. All the while ensuring we hit our SLA’s and our reputation is intact. This role really is customer led and you will be joining a team that operates at a fast pace with high-pressure deadlines and customer expectations.
Pay zone level A3
We are Europe’s No.1 vehicle leasing provider with a clear vision for sustainable mobility. Mobility is as simple as someone moving from point A to point B, however and whenever they chose. Research shows us that for 2021 and beyond, developing existing products and introducing new ones into the mix is what our customers want. Luckily, at Arval, we have an excellent pedigree in mobility. Listening, changing and evolving are also strengths.
With our new Arval Beyond strategy, we look forward to offering the sustainable, flexible and cost effective solutions our customers want. We are proud to say that our customers will continue to be our priority.
Culturally, we are a friendly bunch - more human, than corporate. We expect a lot but know that works both ways so offer our Journey Makers all the support they need. Going forward this will include a flexible approach with split office/ home working options too. When we are back in, you will find our offices inviting, relaxed and refreshing.
Arval: For the many journeys in life
This role is all about interacting with customers, so we need someone who is able to build relationships quickly, be on hand to help and assist, whilst listening and delighting the customer along the way. Sometimes the pressure will be on, so you will not only have the necessary confidence to handle all that comes your way, but the organisational skills and ‘emotional intelligence’ to keep on top.
In essence, your communication skills are awesome and you will be known for your resilience and ability to juggle many tasks, whilst maintaining accuracy and a sense of humour.
Finally, you will be highly motivated and happy to take ownership of all you do, whilst also committed to the team.
- Excellent communication (verbal & written) skills
- Experience of working to tight deadlines in a fast paced environment
- Happy to work autonomously
- High personal motivation
- Able to demonstrate excellent attention to detail
- Effective planning and organisation skills and the ability to prioritise effectively when under pressure
- Previous experience in a sales or administrative role would be an advantage.
