Area Sales Executive - South East
We are Churchill Retirement PLC, the fastest growing company in the UK retirement house building sector and we’re looking for people like you.
We’re a family-run, privately-owned business and we’re going places. We’re proud of what we do, and the people we work with. We have ambitious growth plans for the future, now employing over 600 people and growing all the time.
We pride ourselves on building beautiful, quality, purpose-built one and two bedroom apartments in desirable locations across the UK for those looking for an independent lifestyle in later life. Developments are designed to take away all the hassle and fears that can be experienced by older people and provide security, peace of mind and independence.
We’ve won a host of awards; most recently we have been recognised by The Sunday Times as the 2nd best company to work for and in 2016, became the first ever retirement living specialist to have been named overall ‘Housebuilder of the Year’ by the WhatHouse? Awards.
About the role
We’re looking for a talented Area Sales Executive to work across our developments in the South East region. You will be overseeing sites across the South East so you must be prepared to travel and live within this area.
You will have responsibility for the achievement of sales targets and budgeted selling prices for your development, gaining an understanding of the site, which will be the next place customers call home.
As an Area Sales Executive you’ll be the person that makes a true difference to the lives of our customers as you introduce them to the world of independent living. You’ll proactively contact customers who have shown an interest in knowing more about our developments and provide the best advice on their purchase of the apartment and the lifestyle.
You will work within a dynamic sales team and liaise closely with onsite Marketing, Customer Relations and Construction teams as well as liaising with offsite agents, sales partners, solicitors and progress sales through to completion.
This is a full-time role with hours of work being 9.30am to 5.00pm, working Tuesday to Saturday.
It’s important that you understand our Customers. We all understand that moving can be a daunting experience - your natural approach will ensure our Customers are at ease when making important decisions.
We’d love it if you had previous new home experience, even better if you’ve specialised in the retirement market.
The key essential attributes are excellent Customer relationship skills, a determination to succeed, previous sales skills and drive to meet targets.
You’ll need to be happy working independently, and have a proactive approach to sales and marketing.
You will demonstrate professional and responsible selling at all times, be prepared to get involved at every opportunity, possess excellent interpersonal skills and have previous experience of using IT databases.
It is also vital that you have a UK Drivers Licence as extensive travel will be required.

- Cash for Car benefit or Company car
- Annual holiday entitlement - 24 days + Bank Holidays
- Day off on your birthday
- Group Personal Pension Plan
- Life Assurance
