NFRN Field Team Vacancies
/ Deadline: 01 January, 1970 /
Membership Development Executives Wanted in
Join the Field Team at “The Federation of Independent Retailers (NFRN)”
Are you someone who loves selling to new prospects and business opportunities to business people? Do you love to work to stretching targets? Are you enthusiastic, self motivated and excited by the opportunity to recruit new members as a core requirement for a great organisation? Can you balance this with the need to build and maintain an existing client base? Are you looking for a career and not just a job?
Sounds like you? If so, then we may have the opportunity you have been looking for!
Here at the ‘’The Federation of Independent Retailers’’, more commonly known as “The NFRN”, we serve a membership of over 11,000 independent retailers, representing 15,000 shops across the UK and the Republic of Ireland. We are a very forward thinking, membership led organisation with over 100 years of history. In our new head office in Durham, we have the facilities to match our ambition and the people to make our ambitions a reality.
So where and how will you fit in?
As a Membership Development Executive, you will be part of a team that loves engaging with our existing members and potential members and are tasked with growing membership numbers in your designated geographical territory. You will be part of a new and exciting team, with a new focus that is doing things differently, so there will be plenty of training and support. As well as recruiting new members, you will also encourage all members to partake in brilliant promotions and market leading opportunities that we have created in collaboration with our strategic business partners
What does a day of a Membership Development Team member look like?
Well, there are never two days the same, but in general you will follow a planned visit route and engage with new and potential members. You will be answering their questions and above all doing three things for them. Helping them save money, make money and make their life easier in a competitive marketplace. Being part of our membership gives our members access to a wide range of benefits, market leading resources and 7 day a week support that can deliver them an annual saving of approximately £4,000. We exist to help independent retailers compete more effectively in today’s tough market which never stands still.
Above all you will be driving membership growth and their engagement in our services, plus a whole lot more that you might expect from an organisation that has been supporting retailers for over 100 years.
Who are we looking for?
People who are driven to achieve stretched targets – we are looking for someone who will balance the need to achieve our business goals, with the needs of the independent retailers’ businesses, helping them to save and make money. You will already have a proven conversion history, be persuasive, courteous but never aggressive in selling. You will be great at putting customers first and able to work individually, as well as collaboratively in a team, but importantly you will be part of a great organisation achieving more for its members day in day out.
We offer very competitive terms and conditions including a company car, IT equipment (iPad), phone, pension, salary plus an annual bonus scheme.
Interested? Then don’t waste any time and email firstname.lastname@example.org to apply and we will see you soon.
