Internal Sales

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!

Do people say you’re the life and soul of the party? Are you one of them super driven and focused people who loves to see results?

If this sounds like you then we just might have the role you’re looking for!

Our Christchurch branch is one of our largest and busiest across the company but we are always looking grow and so we are looking to recruit an experienced Internal Sales person into the team to help the branch achieve even more success.

Despite its team’s reputation of being hugely successful, they are better known for their friendly banter and the great atmosphere amongst the team. Which is all driven by the Branch Manager, Ben, who promotes the importance of everyone in his team providing great customer service whilst enjoying what they do on a day-to-day basis.

You will be an integral part of our sales team, working with your team members to create a proactive and sales-oriented culture. You’ll be responsible for developing a sales ledger of customers and using your skills to seek opportunities and maximise profits. It will also require working closely with our sales reps (they’re a good bunch), supporting them by dealing with enquiries and orders. The journey doesn’t just stop once you’ve got the order, you will also be responsible for the whole process, from start to finish, making sure that it all runs smoothly and is tied up neatly. 

It can get quite busy in the office and we expect everyone to muck in and help out where they can so don’t just expect to be glued to the phone. We want each and every customer to have a fantastic experience when they come to us, so we need someone who isn’t afraid to jump on the counter, have a bit of banter with the builders and find out more about their projects.

If you know a bit about building materials already, that’s great, but the main thing we’re after is someone who’s done a bit of time in sales already and has a hunger for success. Someone who has a positive attitude and can lift the spirits of those around them.

We’d want to see you from 8am in the morning until 5pm in the afternoon and we’re 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.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a proactive, ‘go-getter’ who is filled with ambition 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?


Or, know someone who would be a perfect fit? Let them know!
