Creating a positive environment with opportunities to grow, giving you the power to shape your future. When you love where you work, every day is enjoyable. #TheGASLife

This is a very exciting opportunity to work for one of the North East’s largest privately owned businesses, celebrating its 10th birthday this summer!  As our business diversifies, we are creating a fantastic new area within the group focused purely on just one of our services, water.  Some businesses in the UK have been overcharged by up to 65% on their water bills in the past and only 15% of the UK’s businesses have switched water supplier. The market is blossoming with endless opportunities to be had!

As a Business Solutions Advisor, you will be proactive in finding new sales opportunities. Working in our state-of-the-art Sea View HQ in a newly created division, you will make outbound calls to all non-household customers including businesses, charities and public sector organisations offering our “cost saving solutions” for the procurement of water. You will identify the decision-maker within that company and through rapport building and identify/find a need for our service. The “lead” or potential opportunity is then managed by you and converted into the sale, taking control of the full sales cycle. The ideal candidate will be determined to succeed, keen to learn, develop and gain experience in a sales environment. You’ll be customer focused with an excellent telephone manner.

This role would be perfect for someone used to a high-volume telephone sales role, perhaps within the domestic market. However, our role would then build on that experience to offer account manager skills as well as ‘end to end’ sales. Alternatively, if you are new to a career in sales, we have a dedicated development team able to give you the skills to succeed.

Paul JohnsonGroup Financial Director

Paul Johnson is very much a home-grown talent.

He joined Great Annual Savings Group in its infancy, fresh from a youth career as a professional footballer with Hartlepool United.  He quickly established a reputation within the business and aced all required accountancy qualifications in the space of four years to become the Group’s Management Accountant.

Several successful projects later, Paul was promoted to Head of Finance.  When the former FD left GAS, he took on the mantle of the business’ most senior finance professional; boasting a string of incredible achievements all under the age of 30.


“I have witnessed phenomenal growth at the Group over the many years I’ve worked here and I’m looking forward to guiding the Group into an exciting new chapter.”

Interesting fact:

Paul made his professional debut for Hartlepool United against Bournemouth in the Football League.  Some say Danny Ings still resides in his pocket to this day.
