(*)The role includes 10% commission so although the basic is minimum wage the commission is uncapped so there is a huge potential with the role – our most recent junior who’s been with us 4 months now is averaging £950 a month commission before tax.  He is a very strong negotiator but had no experience before coming on board with us, and demonstrates the potential within the role to increase the salary. We will also offer a £2k increase on salary if the successful candidate completes their NFOPP exams within 6 months (and a £1k increase if it takes them between 6 and 12 months). 
We need a person who understands the necessity of professionalism in a business environment and is therefore reliable and presentable.  You must be well motivated and willing to learn quickly, so as to understand and deliver our services effectively.  Customer focused and with a can-do attitude, you will have great communications skills as dealing with people is the core function of the role.  You will be confident in defining priorities and organising yourself so you can deliver them. 
Your written communication and presentation skills must be of a high standard and the accurate and timely production of management information and reports will be something that you can deliver.  It is important to have the ability to work on your own and as part of a team, bringing cooperation and supportiveness alongside self-motivation and clear decision making abilities to your work people inside and outside of Regent.  
Some work outside of office hours will be required when it is necessary.  You should be able to demonstrate some experience of sales expertise, an understanding of the residential property market and basic IT literacy.
