We’re looking for a Team Leader to manage our Brand Ambassadors in Birmingham

Octopus Energy new direct field marketing teams…

You’ll be taking part in a brand new concept within face to face sales. We’re tearing up the traditional door to door and venue sales model. Here at Octopus we’re working hard to reinvent face to face marketing by combining better customer data, our innovative tech platform (Kraken Technologies) with local targeted marketing in order to create more detailed and engaging conversations. Conversations with customers could start from digital engagements, social engagements, retail engagements as well as the customer’s own front door.

We’re changing the landscape of traditional field marketing and re-inventing face to face sales.

What you’ll do…
As a Brand Ambassador Team Leader, you’ll be exactly that, a ‘Leader’, not a manager. You’ll be leading a team of face to face ambassadors to more than just a sales performance, you’ll be the frontline of our brand and as such, you’ll be driving our culture throughout your team.
Your leadership style will be one of inspiration. You’ll be inspiring, motivating and coaching your team of around 10 ambassadors to their absolute best individual performance. You’ll also be inspiring your team by leading by example, you’ll be expected to carry about the same face to face activities as your team, as well as leading & supporting them.
There’s no need for carrots and sticks here at Octopus to remain motivated. Ultimately you’ll be the sort of leader who spends their time trying to catch your team members doing something right, not trying to catch them doing something wrong.
Previous experience in face to face sales will be essential (although it doesn’t have to be in energy).

  • Face to face experience within customer centric sales roles
  • An understanding in either door to door or event sales

  • Flexible working environment – genuine work life balance here, we are in the top 5 companies in the UK, we treat you as a human, and do our best to make work and life merge smoothly together
  • Holiday – 23 days plus bank holidays
