What does a specialist installer do?

As a specialist installer, you’ll be helping our customers transform their homes with our range of premium products, including shutters, awnings and conservatory blinds.

You’ll visit customers in your local area, and put your practical skills to great use installing each product to perfection.

We’ll support you by organising your first appointments for you, but to maximise your earning potential, you’ll learn to generate your own business.

What skills and experience do I need?

  • Apart from basic practical DIY skills, you don’t need any previous experience. You will go through our tailored foundation training course in Nottingham which will teach you all you need to succeed.
  • The programme is made up of 3 parts; Begin, Believe, Become. This is designed to build your product portfolio, learning the core competences along the way. We focus the training on product expertise, measuring, installation and technology. 
  • Hillarys also use a bespoke selling application in home; SAMSON is an award winning application that will provide customers with instance quotes and orders. This also helps you manage your day to day customer diary and sales.
  • Every advisor is also invited back for on-going training. This may be for new product launches, a refresher on a product or new technology that can advance your business. You’ll also benefit from an online community website and eLearning platform.

How much can I earn?

You’ll need £2,500 to start your business. This covers all the training and tools needed to get your business going plus ongoing support from us. You’ll make this money back through your customer appointments, with the potential to earn up to £50,000 a year based on whether you want to work full or part time.

 You will receive:

  • Brand new smart  tablet with Hillarys applications to support in-home appointments
  • Tool box with an extensive range of equipment required when fitting products
  • Optional lease scheme for a Hillarys branded vehicle

The number one benefit of working at Hillarys for me is the flexibility, I am a single father so I can work around my son - which is great for the school run!
