As a Course Consultant, your main responsibility is to secure excellent sales results while ensuring a high-quality customer experience in handling enquiries about our English language and examination services. You will provide face-to-face consultations to all customers in the centre by finding out their needs, issues and concerns and recommending a course that best suit them. You will be required to close sales, maximising enrolment and protect target achievement.
