You will need to be prepared to do a lot of travelling, generate your own appointments and leads and turn these appointments into sales. You will be working to targets set by a company and will earn accordingly.
Starting salaries for field sales executives are between £14,000 and £8,000 a year. You can earn more once you are an experienced sales staff and you will also get commission for every sale you make.

Application for the role of Field Sales Executive
I would like to apply for the role of Field Sales Executive which I have seen advertised in (where) and (when).
I have a proven track record in a sales environment and thrive off the challenge of making a sale. I am a very confident communicator and enjoy meeting new people and trying to close a sale.
In my previous roles I have been responsible for (what patch or area) and I have had to generate my own leads and make appointments and follow these up with a visit. I sometimes work very long hours to achieve my targets but this is something that I enjoy.
I like to work on my own initiative but I also have a wider network of colleagues which is always nice to keep in contact with to boost your spirits on a bad selling day.
I have had a great deal of training in sales and (what products or services) and would like to continue progressing my career within this environment.
I have enclosed my CV for your consideration which details my previous experiences. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
May I take this opportunity to thank you for taking the time to read my letter and CV.
Good luck with your job search and writing your cover letters.
