Notting Hill Genesis is a newly merged housing association following the amalgamation of Notting Hill Housing Trust and Genesis. It’s an exciting time to join us as we shape our future as one of London’s leading housing associations. An entrepreneurial social business with real commercial sense we’re a major player in the London Residential Development market. Our sales and marketing team is passionate about giving customers the opportunity to love where they live – we sell great homes and reinvest our surplus in building more affordable homes, so our success is vital to the success of the communities where we work. We’re excited that our commercial activity means that we can reinvest into our core social purpose. For many of our customers, home ownership starts with us.
We’re looking for driven, customer focused and ambitious Sales Executives to play a key role in delivering our impressive residential sales programme. Our pipeline is one of the biggest and most varied in both the Affordable Housing sector but also rivals that of many private developers. With a peak of 1,000 Shared Ownership homes for sale and 400 private sale homes each year over the next 5 years, this is a big challenge.
In this role you will be reporting to one of three Sales Managers working on our development sites to deliver Shared Ownership property sales. You’ll guide our customers during the biggest purchase of their lives. From first viewing to key handover, you’ll be on hand to make the buying process easy.
You’ll work closely with our marketing team to ensure that our sales campaigns are exciting and that assets such as sales brochures are fit for purpose. A key player in pre-launch sales strategy planning, you’ll use your experience and customer insight to make sure we meet our objectives.
A self-motivated individual you will be able to organise your workload to meet your KPIs. This role is site based so you’ll need to be able to work independently and flexibly. Our sites are based all across London and you may be asked to work at any one of these sites as and when required. As well as being customer focused, you’ll need to make sure you work in line with regulations around our products and leases, ensuring your records are kept up to date via our CRM.
Excellent communication skills are absolutely vital in this role and the ability to develop and build relationships will be key. You’ll be expected to work with a range of stakeholders both internally and externally, including solicitors, Independent Financial Advisors, development colleagues, local authorities and contractors to ensure sales progress without issues.
To meet our core objectives you’ll need to work Tuesday – Saturday so we can be open when our customers need us. Your performance will be rewarded through our uncapped performance related pay scheme. We offer commission of £200 per unit sold, £150 of this awarded upon exchange and the final £50 awarded upon completion.
This role is demanding and is crucial to our long term success. Driven and commercially astute, you’ll ideally have experience of sales in a property setting ideally new homes, with knowledge of the property sales process including Shared Ownership.
If this sounds like the challenge you’re looking for we’d love to hear from you.
