Jon – Service Manager – All Essential Fire & Security

What did you do before you started your sales career?

I was in the Public Service (Police force)

What was your first sales job and how did you land it?

I have not had one yet, unless you include part of my current job role as service manager... jack of all trades etc etc

Explain what you like about your current sales position.

I am solution driven, so I enjoy the challenge of a solving a complex technical problem that others have failed at.

Tell us what you don’t like about sales jobs.

Long sales cycles make daily motivation difficult and dent morale if wins do not follow. Pressure is high to perform.

What are some common sales myths in the Fire industry?

I am not aware of any ...

What career advice would you give a graduate or person thinking of a career change so they could find sales vacancies in your industry?

Do not burn your bridges with a particular company/product.  This is a small industry, and everyone knows everyone...

Is there any other career advice you would give to someone thinking about sales jobs and starting a sales career?

Create a list of DAILY goals to achieve - calls, appointments etc, and MEET them. Your activities define you as a salesperson. Also take Tim William’s course! The results WILL follow.
