As a trainee you will be on a lower basic wage of course. As a trainee or graduate you can be expecting to earn a basic wage between £18–25k per year, plus benefits package (including car). However as you will not be making as many sales, the commission will not be that high until you are able to go off on your own when you have some more experience.

As you get to a more senior level and move into management, either at sales manager level or moving into the marketing team, you could expect this salary to increase significantly as you get given more and more responsibility. You may also get bigger bonuses based on performance and better benefits.

So in answer to the question you are all asking, the earning potential including commission for those in such a role can be very high, and with great benefits!
