Since 1993 we have recruited and trained hundreds of people who have worked in telesales support of IFAs both in the UK and around the world. IFAs provide financial advice to expatriates and this is time-consuming, so they need the help of telesales specialists also known as coordinators to research and build lists of prospects in their area. The telesales support then calls the prospects with the aim of setting an initial free meeting.

Telesales specialists can either work from home, run their own business or live abroad working directly in the IFA offices.

Once you complete the online course, you will discuss with your mentor your preferred way forward. They will guide you on the best way to get started and if required introduce you to IFAs looking to recruit telesales specialists.

Can I choose where I work?

The simple answer is yes. Your mentor will provide you with a list of the IFA firms and locations that are available to you and discuss the various options. It is then up to you to choose where you want to go.

Can I work from home?

Yes, you can work from any location as long as you have a computer and a good internet connection.

Are the hours flexible?

Yes, you decide how many hours a day you wish to work. You will be your own boss and can tailor a home based telesales business so that it becomes your sole income, or as a top up to your current income.

How can I work abroad?

A number of the IFA firms we work closely with recruit telesales staff to work directly in their offices in places like Dubai, Hong Kong, Moscow, and many others. Your mentor will guide you on the best choices.

How much can I expect to earn?

It depends on the way you work. For example, working from home you can charge an hourly fee and a fee for each appointment you make. An example would be an hourly fee of $30 and $100 for each appointment that is confirmed.

Other telesales people charge a commission of the sales the IFA makes, this is normally around 20%. But this is more common for telesales staff who work abroad in the IFA offices, and these can lead to six-figure incomes.
