Introduction Door-to-door sales is about the perfect pairing of product and pitch. We’ve got ultrafast broadband and amazing phone and TV services. And if you’ve got the friendly personality to help customers find their ideal package - it should add up to a big bonus. The role We’ll give you a territory to focus on along with the freedom to plan your routes and your day. First and foremost, you’ll need to be comfortable talking to people you’ve never met. On average, you’ll be knocking on 150-200 doors each day - come rain or shine.

Do brilliantly, and you could be off to Dubai. Naturally, we’ve made sure the rest of the package is impressive too. * Generous holiday * Your birthday off, every year! * A generous contributory pension * Private medical insurance * Life assurance * Discounts on our broadband, mobile, voice and media services, and money off other Virgin Group products, services and experiences About us It’s always exciting at Virgin Media. Right now, though, we’re in the middle of the UK’s biggest digital infrastructure improvement for over a decade. Our £3bn programme will pipe our ultrafast broadband network and brilliant Virgin TV into 17 million homes and businesses. It’s just one of the great stories you could soon be telling potential customers. Equal Opportunities We are proud to work with Everywoman to champion the advancement of women in business, and through our partnership with Scope to help one million disabled people get into and stay in work by the end of 2020. We strive to build a diverse and sustainable workforce where gender balance and parity are integral features of our workplace, and where disabled candidates and employees can confidently perform to their full potential through our Work with Me adjustment process.
