Techspace is a growth company. Inevitably, there will be levels of ambiguity within roles, and at times all of us need to operate above, below or beyond our usual scope of responsibility.  Our Job Descriptions are intended to frame the key tasks and responsibilities within the role, to provide transparency not only for job holders but also for staff internally so we understand how, collectively, our organisation is equipped to succeed. Job Descriptions are not intended as an exhaustive list, but to be a representation of the activities each post undertakes.

Job Purpose: 

The Sales Associate role is a pivotal administrative role primarily managing inbound demand and assigning leads to the Sales team, in addition to performing outbound tasks to generate further interest as well as supporting the Sales Manager in viewings.

Techspace Values

Transparent

We’re authentic, honest and direct, embracing candid, supportive feedback to create an empathic environment. When things go wrong, we speak up, take responsibility and learn from our mistakes. We’re hard wired to trust those we work alongside.

Doers

Actions speak louder than words, so we choose to get it done. Structure helps us improve where we’ve been, initiative helps us navigate where we’re going.

Balance

We seek balance through reflection, trust and fairness. From setting business objectives and balancing the strengths and weaknesses of team members to fostering a working environment that supports personal fulfilment; balance is key.

Conscientious

Governed by conscience, principled in actions - we believe in going the extra mile. We succeed in supporting the success of others, and choose to deliver understated excellence. Fairness is important to us and we apply this to all aspects of our business; we care!

Iterative

We learn by doing, take smart risks and are prepared to fail in order to learn. Many of our best leaps forward have been steps into the unknown, working backwards from our goals to turn ambiguity into structure. We root out truths, test assumptions and challenge the status quo.
