Part-Time Sales Support

The Eldernet Group  Christchurch City, Canterbury Starting rate $24 per hour

Job Description

The Eldernet Group is a family-owned group of companies based in New Brighton. We operate a web-based database and a publishing business. In our 25th year of business we’re still growing, expanding and leading the market.

We’re seeking someone to join our Customer Support Team to support our in-house sales team who promote both our online and print offerings. Our clients are awesome and include small owner/operators, large corporates, listed companies, not-for-profits, trust boards and District Health Boards. They all use our services (online listings and print advertisements) to inform older people about the products and services they provide.

This position will support our salespeople to spend as much time as possible selling. You’ll also help our clients to maximise their profile with us and get the most from our services. Whilst it is not a sales role, you might find that your natural persuasive skills can shine in this position. You will work alongside your salesperson and our sales and key account manager. You will often need to show initiative and flexibility to achieve the team’s goals and targets. You will need great time management and have the ability and skills to move quickly between jobs and prioritise tasks.

Lots of your time will be spent on the phone so you’ll need to be comfortable connecting with clients over the phone. You’ll also need excellent spoken and written English language skills as you will be researching possible prospects for the sales team, assisting with office duties, checking client-supplied information/advertisements for any possible errors/omissions, and sending and responding to e-mails on behalf of team members.

You’ll be using both our own in-house packages and the MS Office suite, including Teams, to record and report your work. You will need high levels of skill and accuracy to succeed in this role.

You will be based in our offices, located on the edge of the New Brighton shopping precinct.  Working 15 or 16 hours per week, (made up of three 5-hour days OR four 4-hour days), we will be happy to negotiate with the successful applicant the days that would best suit all parties.

You’ll be working in a wider supportive team so you will need to enjoy relating to people from all sorts of backgrounds. Our team culture is treasured and based on our business values of “synergy and connection; heart and spirit; justice and equity, and innovation and creation”.

Our team all have a genuine interest in the older person sector and will offer you opportunities to learn and understand different roles in the business.

If you:

  • Want to work in a PASSION fuelled workplace – where what you do makes a difference in older people’s lives
  • LOVE being part of a team who enjoy each other’s company, works hard, and celebrate successes.
  • Are a quick LEARNER who enjoys being challenged with a VARIETY of tasks and daily duties with great ATTENTION TO DETAIL
  • Love a FAST paced, DEADLINE driven environment?

…then we’d love to hear from you!

Apply online with a resume/CV and cover letter outlining why you think you’d be a great appointment to the position, or call Linda (our General Manager) on 0800 162 706 if would like to learn more about the role.
