The role
We're looking for an ambitious and dynamic Sales Exec to help us deliver an exceptional Probate service to our customers.

It’s a daunting task that we strive to make simpler, faster and more affordable than traditional providers. Part of how we do that is through building a fantastic team of people who are legally savvy, commercially minded and motivated by compassionately helping people through enormously difficult challenges.
As a Sales Executive, you'll be responsible for shaping and defining how we run and sell our Probate service. You’ll work towards commercial goals while focusing on the importance of delivering a best-in-show customer experience. It’s a great opportunity for someone looking to cut their teeth in a high impact startup environment. This role is in a team of 3 and reports to our Probate Sales Manager.

  • Guide customers through the government requirements for probate, and what needs to happen and why
  • Explain our different types of Probate services so the customer can make the right decision based on their estate complexity and needs
  • Prove consistency in our weekly and quarterly sales targets, including conversion rates and QA (Quality Assurance) scores on our inbound enquiries
  • Master smooth and efficient handovers to our Legal team
  • Work cross-functionally towards our company OKRs and monthly revenue targets, and assist with quarterly team presentations
