We’re recruiting!

9th August 2017

By Charlie McEnery

You may have seen on social media that we are currently recruiting, so I thought it would be nice to share with you a little bit more information about the role and the kind of environment that we work in.

Let me start off by telling you what my role is within Floors of Stone Ltd…

I’ve been working for Floors of Stone for just over a year now and I’m still loving it as much as I did when I first started! For the first few months at Floors of Stone I mainly focused on learning all of the products and information needed for my role as a customer adviser. There is a lot to learn but once you get the hang of it, it’s pretty straight forward. The skills that I have learnt since being here I know will be helpful for the rest of my working life.

Once I got the hang of my sales and customer adviser role I then had the opportunity to explore other areas of the business such as posting and advertising on some of our social media platforms; doing the photography for the company; making advertising videos with my colleague Emily (our marketing assistant); writing the occasional blog and the list goes on. I do all of this alongside my general customer adviser role, so as you can imagine each day is very different and exciting!

The best thing about my job and working at Floors of Stone is that you get to learn things that you wouldn’t usually have the opportunity to learn in a normal place of work, which may uncover hidden talents and passions that you previously may not have considered.

So what kind of person are we looking for to fill our current job vacancy?

We are on the hunt for people who have for a passion for interiors to join our fast growing sales team set in the idyllic location of Cotes Mill. We are looking for people that are enthusiastic and hardworking to join the budding deVOL group of companies.

The main purpose of the role is dealing with customer sales and enquiries on the telephone, via email and face to face in our beautiful showroom. You will need to gain a sound understanding of the products enabling you to advise and sell with confidence. You will also have the opportunity to be involved with other projects contributing to the growth of the business, including but not limited to marketing, writing blogs and press releases and using social media platforms to promote Floors of Stone.

The Floors of Stone team are very welcoming and friendly and although sales are very important our sales aren’t target driven as such. We pride ourselves on excellent customer service and feel that this along with our marketing tactics really drives our sales without us having to be pushy. We let the customers come to us and from there we offer our expert knowledge, service and products.

This role would be perfect for individuals who are currently or have previously worked in a customer service or sales roles that wish to expand their knowledge and learn new skills, as well as graduates looking to start their career.

If you thought that this job wasn’t dreamy enough, have you seen where you could be based?

Our office is based in the beautiful Cotes Mill, an old water mill in the Leicestershire countryside, set in 12 acres of beautiful surroundings on the River Soar.  The grounds itself is home to lots of animals such as fallow deer, free roaming chickens, rabbits, guinea fowl, peacocks, swans, geese, kittens and many more! My favourite place to sit and enjoy my lunch break is by our very own mill pond, this is also where our resident ducks, swans and geese like to spend most of their time.

The Mill building itself has four floors of beautiful interiors from flooring, kitchens, antiques and gifts.

Our office is on the ground floor, right next to the mill pond, so we get to see all that’s going on with the Mill’s wildlife.

If you’re interested in this job and would like to apply, please send us your CV to for consideration.

Good luck and we can’t wait to hear from you!!
