● Language: you should be able to speak 2 languages: English on an above-average level and be native or fluent in one of the languages of the above mentioned countries (exception for Native English speakers).
● Independent: The ability to work independently (you report directly to the Management) and to demonstrate leadership.
● Structured: The ability to work in a structured manner: the only way to make sure that HousingAnywhere will not become a victim of its own growth, is to be very organized. You will need to work according to specific checklists of our framework and develop the checklists yourself if they do not yet exist.
● Persistent: You will be part of a Sales Team. A central characteristic of good sales people is that they are very persistent: they should be able to get many rejections and still continue their job.You should be able to keep on selling this product over and over again.
● Productive and motivated worker: We need someone who is a hard worker and is really passionate about Housing Anywhere. You will work 40 hours a week, but should Housing Anywhere grow much more rapidly than expected, we are looking for people who are willing to go the extra mile. It has happened that our interns had to work on a Sunday. Although this is not common, you should be prepared for it!
● Energetic, optimistic and imaginative power: you need to motivate yourself and your colleagues, also in bad times.
● Willing to do simple tasks: your title will be Junior Sales Manager and you have quite some responsibility. However, on the other hand there is nobody ‘below’ you in our office. This means you also need to complete simple tasks, for example, preparing excel sheets, replacing a logo on our website, emptying the dishwasher etc. It won’t be your main job, but these things will be part of the job.
