Following a six-month study and work experience course the first recruit into Avant Homes’ innovative sales advisor training programme has graduated.
Jasmine Tubridy is the first trainee to qualify from the programme, which is unique to the housebuilding sector. The programme is designed to find and train talented and enthusiastic people who have no previous experience in new homes sales and prepare them for a successful career in the housing sector.
Explaining the importance of the programme Avant Homes’ new graduate sales advisor, Jasmine Tubridy, said:
“For me, this was an incredible opportunity to expand my current sales skills and grow within the company. Taking part in the training programme, especially with Avant Homes, which has a reputation for focusing on excellent customer service, was such an exciting experience and I would like to thank them for giving me the chance to delve into the industry.
“I am looking forward to putting into practice everything I have learnt and helping people to find their dream home and building communities.”
The Avant Homes sales advisor training involves a six-step programme combining classroom- based activities and ‘on-the-job’ training across Avant Homes developments in Yorkshire. The programme aims to develop and train promising sales advisors to become advocates of the Avant Homes difference, nurture and develop trainees’ talents, enhance the customer experience and achieve sales. The programme’s end result will create competent sales advisors who can confidently and efficiently direct customers from reservation to completion.
Commenting on Jasmine’s achievement, Avant Homes’ managing director, Mark Mitchell, said:
“At Avant Homes we are committed to giving our customers the best possible home buying experience – from the quality of the property and the superior specification to outstanding customer service. Our approach to housebuilding is totally different to our competitors, so we felt that our sales training should be different too.”
“Over the last six months, Jasmine has demonstrated confidence and enthusiasm in every aspect of her role and now possesses the skills required to become a highly competent sales advisor. We’re very impressed with Jasmine’s passion and eagerness to learn, and we’re confident that she will enjoy a successful career with Avant Homes now her training is complete.”
