About Us

Sales Manager (D2C)

London, England, United Kingdom

The Company

Octopus Legacy is the place to plan for death and find support after loss. When people think about planning for death they think about wills, life insurance and funerals. We take these cold processes and turn them into something more human. Share more than money: leave voice notes, music, recipes. Shape a legacy that connects you while you're here. And after you're gone.

Founded by Sam after his mum died suddenly, we’re a group of people who work in death because we’ve been affected by it. We know the difference a good plan makes, and what it’s like when there isn’t one.

Death can come between us, leave mess, legal fees, frustration. But it can also make us stronger. We see a world where people talk openly about death, and work out the real meaning of legacy, one that connects to them. We’re here to make that world happen. 

The Role

We are hiring an experienced and motivated Sales Manager to join our Estate Planning team! This team helps existing customers who have started one of our online products (a will, LPA etc), but may require extra support via various channels such as phone, live chat, email and in person home visits.

The ideal candidate will have a proven track record in sales, strong leadership skills, and the ability to drive a team towards achieving sales targets and revenue goals. Reporting into our Head of Sales, you will be responsible for developing and implementing effective sales strategies, managing the sales team, and building strong relationships with clients and stakeholders.

This is a great opportunity for someone looking to work in a fast-paced and changing environment, who likes to work autonomously, enjoys a challenge and wants to make an impact!
