Skills in staff
What we look for when we employ
At Housing Units we believe in developing and nurturing peoples skills, so when we employee new staff we are more interested in you as a person and your approach to work. So for you to become a member of the Housing Units team you don’t necessarily need any previous experience, but you do need a great personality and a commitment to succeed.
How can you help us?
As a member of the Housing Units team, you will have a vital part to play in presenting our public face to our customers. Your manner, whether on the phone or face to face, will affect the perception of our Company. Your appearance and attitude will support the image we wish to portray. Your knowledge and skills, properly applied, will encourage and enable our customers to regard Housing Units as friendly and professional. We know that we offer excellent products but our objective is for all our customers to naturally think of Housing Units as their first choice because of our people.
I have been employed at Housing Units for nearly 12 months in Furniture Sales. Although I had been in Sales previously, I had never sold or been involved with furniture before. I found it very interesting learning about all the products and quite challenging at times as we sell a lot of products with many options available. In the past few months I’ve been top sales of both the week and the month, which I am very proud of! I have found the job both challenging and rewarding but am now a part of a friendly and knowledgeable team.
In 2002 I was working in a corner shop and decided the time had come to look for another job as I wanted to expand my horizons. I saw a job advertised in the local newspaper for Fires and Surrounds sales at Housing Units. I was really pleased to be successful for interview and nearly thirteen years later, I'm still at Housing Units working in Sales. I didn't know I had it in me, it took someone else to see that. So it just goes to show that you don't have to have any background in sales to be successful.
