I am working with an award-winning property company who are looking for Associate Auction Specialists to join their fast growing team. Working in partnership with over 2,500 estate agents across the UK, this role is home or office based, or could be a combination of both. 

You will be responsible for building the relationship with partner estate agents; encourage estate agent to send leads (list houses); help vendors to see the value in the service proposition (sell houses). An Associate Auction Specialist generally has 12 months to progress to recognition as an Auction Specialist but can progress in a shorter timeframe if all requirements are met. This role is fundamentally similar to that of an Auction Specialist but there will be limitations to the level of partner managed and the range of activity until the mandatory requirements are met.

The ideal candidate for this position will have 2-3 years estate agency sales experience, excellent communication and customer service skills, be target driven, tenacious and possess an excellent work ethic with a willingness to go above and beyond.

The position attracts a £20,000 basic salary with a guarantee of £28,000 and an OTE of £45,000 in Year 1, 40 hours a week 9-5:30pm with occasional Saturday’s (9am – 2pm) rota’d once fully trained and competent.  This role offers fantastic career progression opportunities with clear career pathways.
