To be a good fit for this role, you need to be comfortable servicing young families, and value saving for post-secondary education. You do not need any financial services or sales experience - we are not pushy sales people!
Knowledge First Financial is a leading RESP provider in Canada with one focus: Make dreams possible with a Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP). To ensure that all Canadian children have this opportunity, our Sales Representatives work actively within their communities as RESP specialists, to bring education saving awareness to young families, and provide the support they need to make informed and proactive decisions for their children’s futures.
As a Sales Representative, a typical day might include the following:
• Search for community events using Google, Facebook and your local newspaper
• Represent Knowledge First Financial at local community events and trade shows
• Call and email your contacts to setup your appointments for the week
• Meet with families in their homes to provide RESP information and options
• Respond to your client’s customer service needs through email, phone and house visits
• Attend a workshop at the Branch Office
• Post, share and respond to inquires through your business Facebook page
• Send out birthday cards to your client’s children to stay in touch
• Flexibility to rearrange your schedule when you need to, meaning you will never miss a family event, or last-minute vacation deal ever again
• Continuous training & support
• Opportunity to travel (in style!) to the National Business Conference – a one week, all inclusive stay at a tropical luxury resort for you and a guest
• Annual bonuses + contests and incentives throughout the year
