Careers and training

A new and rewarding career

Helping people make what is, for many, the most important purchase decision of their lives is a very rewarding profession. It can also be financially rewarding.

To be a successful sales consultant you will need to be enthusiastic, driven, personable and empathetic. The latter is particularly important, because for many people home sales and purchase often coincides with major life events or crises – such as bereavement, divorce or unemployment. This can make the home moving experience a traumatic time and as a sales consultant you will need to be understanding and supportive.

Many potential new homes sales consultants are referred by a friend. Others instinctively know the property market is for them. We pride ourselves on having helped many hundreds of sales consultants enter the industry and receive what we believe to be the best training and support in the field.  If you know of someone who is looking for their next opportunity or perhaps their current role ends soon or they simply want a change – do them a favour and recommend them to us and you could earn yourself up to *£200 in Marks & Spencer vouchers (*terms and conditions apply)  Download our Recommend a Friend leaflet here “Recommend a Friend” complete your details and your friend’s details then save and email back to us at

Remember that as a sales consultant you are there to sell.  To support you in that, our courses are designed to help you acquire technical product knowledge, master the use of sales incentives and develop a thorough understanding of the complete house buying process. If you feel you have the attributes and transferable skills email or call 0845 524 0 524

If you are considering joining our team by attending one of our training courses but are still undecided, check out the video below of Caroline who attended a course and has been working for us ever since…

One of our new trainees has just completed her 4 day training course and commented as follows:
“Just returned from 4 day’s training with Maitland Selwyn, started feeling very nervous but by the end of day one was fired up with enthusiasm and by day 4 left with a great deal of knowledge and bags of confidence. A really fantastic course which I would recommend to anyone wanting to join the new homes sales industry.”
