Counter Sales Person

Elliotts is a family-owned builders merchant that’s been helping the south build since 1842. We’re in the business of doing great work with great people. Become part of our incredible team!

Looking for a new challenge? Want to join a friendly, hard-working team?  

Well, we might be just what you’re looking for.  

Our Fareham branch is looking to reach its highest ever sales figures and to help achieve this we’re looking for a motivated person to join the team and help reach that goal.  

We’ve identified that there’s more we could be doing to increase roofing sales within the branch so if you know a thing or 2 about roofing then that’s great. However, it’s not the end of the world if you don’t- knowledge of any building materials would be an advantage for us but again, it’s not a deal breaker, if you’ve got the right attitude and are a fast learner then we want to hear from you.  

Elliotts have been helping their customers build for years, 178 years to be exact and is still headed up by an Elliott today. Many of our senior members, including directors and managers, have started in this exact same role so there really is no limit to where a great work ethic and commitment can get you and we’re onboard to support those aspirations.  

A typical day would include really getting to know our customers, building long lasting relationships so they come back time after time. You’d support them by helping with queries about a wide range of materials, placing stock orders for those materials and help merchandise and stock the shop. This isn’t just a checkout role though, unlike many other shops, we get to haggle with our customers so it’s important you are great at communicating.  

We’d want to see you from 7am in the morning until 4pm in the afternoon but we’ll let you take a lunch inhouse or from the many food outlets that are just round the corner. We are also open on Saturdays 8am till 12pm but appreciate that you do need a lie in now and again so won’t expect you to work every week (there’s usually a bit of banter before the weekend sporting activities).  

This is a fantastic opportunity for a passionate person with a brilliant sense of humour to join not only a great team but a great, family run business who strive to go the extra mile for its customers.  

We can’t wait to hear from you, so what are you waiting for?

Usually responds within a week
