When it’s so much more than sales targets. That’s when it hits home.
It’s critical we continue to deliver services for our customers during the COVID-19 outbreak, and our awesome colleagues are at the very heart of making that happen. We need Brilliant People like you to join us.
We have an amazing opportunity for a Sales Executive (known internally to us as Persona Host – Sales) to join us and manage all sales activity for our exclusive Persona new homes development at Watling Grange, in Harrogate. You’ll ensure the personal touch for each and every customer, selling our contemporary luxury homes from 2 to 5 bedroom, semi-detached, detached and terraced houses. This is a fabulous opportunity to join our award winning team (did you know we’re winners of best house at the “What House Awards 2018”?).
Our Watling Grange development is right in the heart of Yorkshire, just off Skipton Road and very close to Harrogate town centre on public transport or by car. You’ll be making a big difference to the lives of our customers moving into their Persona Home. You’ll ensure that each customer has a brilliant, experience purchasing one of our homes with a personal touch. Whether it’s advising on lifestyle choices, superior fixtures and fittings to remembering exactly how they like to take their coffee! You will be with our customers every step of the way, working hard on their behalf to help their dream home become a reality. Watling Grange is a place of real character, every home is contemporary in design, where residents can enjoy elegantly linked spaces, with walking routes, wildlife trails and community gardens, and where their homes look onto beautiful spaces.
Based on site in our amazing marketing suite, you’ll be managing all sales activity for our 250 plots (both outright sale and shared ownership) from leads, to legal set up through to sales completion. This will include carrying out viewings, securing reservations and progressing sales. You’ll also work collaboratively with Home Group solicitors to produce legal packs and progress sales across. We expect to be on site for four years and there may be opportunities to move to other sites at the end of the development.
You’ll be reporting to Michelle, our Sales Manager, working alongside our regional sales team, who work together to hit our sales targets and delight our customers. Michelle has worked at Home Group for three years, bringing a wealth of sales experience to share with the team. Outside of work you’ll find her spending time with her family or socialising with the team (they do love a good old knees up, pre Covid of course!). The team also love a catch up at work with plenty of biscuits and chocolate on the go, sharing ideas of how to meet their sales targets as well as putting the world to right!

A bit about you
With a passion for new home sales and achieving sales targets, you’ll have a background in a new homes or estate agency environment, including knowledge of affordable tenure products and outright sale. You’ll understand the financial requirements to buy, including mortgage processes and financial assessments. You’ll be a self-motivated, and energised team member with excellent organisational skills. If you’re brilliant at building relationships with your customers and leading a deal “close”, then this is the icing on the cake (or should we say the sold sign on the door!).
We may need you to travel to other sites or to attend team meetings. So ideally you’ll have a driving licence and access to a vehicle or willing to use public transport. You'll be required to work 37.5 hours per week, which will include weekends (Saturdays and Sundays), weekdays and early evening.
