Any prior sales experience, either formally or informally, would be beneficial but not critical.

Probation period: 1 month, can be extended to 3 months at manager's discretion
On the job training: As the role is to start on the 15th January 2020 there will be an initial 2 week training and "orientation" period in the first 2 weeks of December to get starters up to speed prior to the December holiday period. This will be in depth and ensure that you are ready.
