Become An Expert Advisor

If you have a few strings to your bow and want the chance to use them, then we have a business opportunity just for you.

Our advisors enjoy a varied life. They get the chance to talk to customers about the different window dressing options available, help them visualise the possibilities and arrive at a decision. And then they get to see their delighted faces when they return to fit the products, adding the perfect finishing touch to their homes.

  • Hillarys will find you customers and book appointments in your diary.
  • You will visit the customer in their home and help them find the perfect window dressing, advising them on colour, styles and accessories.
  • You will measure up their windows and provide a quote for the customer during the visit.
  • You will place the order with us.
  • Usually around two weeks later you will return to the customer’s home and fit the product.
  • One week later, you will get paid.

What Do You Need To Be An Expert Advisor?

  • Excellent communication skills

The ability to communicate with a diverse group of people and put them at ease is important in this role.

  •  Competent at DIY

Although fitting our products is not difficult and award winning training is provided, an advisor needs to feel happy with a drill in their hand and confident that they will make a tidy job in our customers’ homes.

  • Organisation

Advisors manage their own diaries and keep an accurate record of orders and payments. They keep track of their commission statements and liaise regularly with departments at head office.

  •  Presentation and reliability

Advisors must turn up on time, with the right equipment and looking smart and presentable in Hillarys branded work wear.

  • Respect for others

Advisors need to be friendly and professional in attitude and show due respect for our customers’ property.

  •  Commited to service

A commitment to delivering a high quality service and a determination to succeed is essential.

  • A vechile

Advisors need a full driving licence and their own reliable and suitable vehicle.

  • Computer and internet connection

Advisors need a home PC with internet connection.
