Job Description

We are currently recruiting apprentices across different areas of the business. This will be an opportunity to become part of that group and to develop your skills on the job while gaining your qualification from the University of Roehampton.


The Sales Operations team plays a critical role in supporting the sales team and the wider organisation in day-to-day operations of the business. Operations include sourcing and negotiating pricing and lead-times from distribution and other suppliers, order management, and the processes to follow through on order deliveries ranging from hardware and software provision, to the establishment of service contracts.

The Sales Operations role will:

  • Place orders with distribution and suppliers using our Oracle NetSuite system
  • Manage supplier deliveries and liaise with the logistics team
  • Work with third party couriers to coordinate hardware returns and collections

  • Work with the finance team to produce invoicing forecasts and for client queries relating to billing and invoicing
  • Track, manage, and provide invoice instruction for our monthly billed clients
  • Work with the service renewals team to create and update client service handbooks for support and subscription services
  • Maintain client relationships through timely and helpful communication

Future Prospects
