Hours of work
There are no fixed hours for this work. While we do have targets and deadlines for the completion of work, you make phone calls or send emails during the day when you have some spare time. Have an hour in the morning while enjoying a latte at Starbucks…? Make a few phone calls. Have a couple of hours in the afternoon between putting the baby to sleep and the arrival of your other kids from their day at school…? Make a few phone calls. How you spend your time to complete the work is up to you, so long as you meet the targets and deadlines.
Who this position would suit
Retirees; stay at home parents; individuals returning to the workforce; fresh grads; unemployed or underemployed individuals; persons with disabilities who can use computers and phones.
We offer a generous commission tied to outcomes. Meaning, if we close a sale as a result of an appointment you have set, we will provide you with a percentage of the gross amount of the sale (excluding GST).
There is no deadline for applications. But the sooner you start and the sooner we bring in sales, the sooner you have extra money in your pocket!

We hold ourselves answerable at all times for the outcomes of our actions or inactions.
We work conscientiously, attentively, and accurately, always giving our best effort to achieve the same result for others that we would want for ourselves.

The result of these combined values is “IBADAH” or “worship.” We view the performance of our work as an act of worship of Allah, the Merciful and Generous Creator and Sustainer of us all. We seek His favor by worshiping Him through the best possible performance of our work, leading to the achievement of positive results for our shareholders, clients, work colleagues, families, and ourselves.
