Sales Administrator

The Role

What will I be doing as a Sales Administrator?

You will be providing administrative support within the sales team, ensuring the lifecycle of a sales order from initial quotation to invoicing and payment is efficiently and accurately completed. 

Sales administrators at Nexus talk to our clients and partners on behalf of our sales and new business team. You will be dealing with people over the phone, by email and via instant messenger.

Day to Day

We need you to:

  • Accurately manage our records including:
    • Quote, client order, supplier order and invoice processing for our clients and sales teams.
    • Registering and maintaining vendor deal registrations to ensure Nexus have an improved likelihood of winning client deals.
    • Obtaining and communicating pricing, availability and delivery information for products and services; sometimes with tight deadlines.
    • Recording and registering warranties and licensing.
  • Deal with purchasing, stock control and deliveries.
  • Work with defined processes but also identify areas for improvement and suggest solutions to implement and improve efficiencies.
  • Work closely with finance and technical departments to resolve queries, progress updates on orders or quotes and provide additional help and assistance.
  • Attend and contribute to team meetings when requested (we hold these meetings on Microsoft Teams and in person).
  • Carry out all client activities with commercial awareness and due diligence. 
  • Assist with administrative and operational activities including answering, screening and forwarding phone calls from other departments when we experience high call volumes.
  • Become aware of the importance of Information Security policies and processes applicable to our organisation and our ISO27001 certification (we’ll train you on our policies and procedures but you’ll need to consider the guidelines in your day to day working).
