out of home sales assistant 

This entry level role has loads of opportunity for progression, if you’re looking to find your feet in a fast-growing foodie business this is the ideal role for you. We’re still quite a small team so you’ll need to be keen to pitch in everywhere to help get stuff done.

Our tea isn’t just drunk at home, it’s also served in lots of places you’d come by every day - restaurant chains, offices, stadiums and universities to name a few. It’s our mission to make sure they’re serving the best cup of tea possible! In this role you will have a solid understanding of how our key out of home accounts operate and will be assisting account managers with keeping our customers happy on a day to day basis.

You’ll need bags of enthusiasm to succeed in this fast paced area of the business. You’ll play a huge part in organising and hosting pop-ups and training sessions, attending trade shows across the country and generally assisting in account management duties.

Your main responsibility day-to-day will be to support on our larger national accounts which include Bidfood and Compass Group. This is certainly not a “desk-job” and you’ll often find yourself out on the road visiting our trade customers and serving tea to consumers.

We’re not “sell sell sell” but some sales experience is desired as you’ll regularly be face to face with our customers for samplings and events.

If you want a role that you can really make your own then this is for you!

you're perfect for us if you have..

  • a friendly, can-do attitude and willingness to pitch in when needed
  • a real passion for providing the very best customer service – you should get a kick out of making people smile!
  • a keen eye for detail and the ability to plan ahead
  • some experience dealing with customers, perhaps in a retail environment
  • BIG ambition to learn and grow within a small(ish), fun and dynamic team
  • a full UK driving licence

 are we perfect for you?! You’ll get… 

  • to work with the best tea company in Brentford!
  • a competitive starting salary + performance related bonus
  • amazing benefits, including free weekly fitness classes, an option for private healthcare and free tea!
  • regular socials
  • 25 days paid annual leave plus bank holidays!

To apply, please send a CV and cover letter (that bit’s important!) to lauren@teapigs.co.uk explaining why you are the perfect fit for the role. 

Please don’t send your application without a cover letter – they’re our favourite bit!
