As a Sales & Marketing Graduate you will be exposed to all elements of the Sales & Marketing function, tasked with delivering the sales targets for your region.
The majority of the Sales team are based in sales offices on our developments and work with the construction team to ensure all customers get a 5 star experience.
Being an effective contributor to the Sales & Marketing function means being able to work with people. You need to be able to pick up on the simplest of signs given by a customer so you can respond appropriately and exceed their expectations.
Our Sales Consultants are required to be commercially aware, able to understand market conditions, understand the impact of sales costs on profit margins and the marketing methodology used to maximise the value of our sites. To be our Sales & Marketing Graduate you should ideally hold a degree in Marketing, Business Studies or Psychology although other degrees will be considered.
Applications for the 2018 Graduate Development Programme are now open. Apply for the CALA Graduate Application Programme today.
