Being an in-home advisor

In-home advisors are the face of Hillarys, visiting customers in around 10,000 homes across the country every week. But you’ll cover an area local to where you live. Here’s how it works.

  • Customers book appointments after seeing our advertising
  • In-home advisors visit customers, taking samples for them to browse
  • During the appointment, in-home advisors measure up, give a quote and take orders
  • The blinds or curtains are manufactured at head office, then delivered
  • In-home advisors return to the customer’s home to fit the product
  • After the fit is complete, in-home advisors are paid for the work

You can work as much or as little as you want and can treat this as a new career or a handy second income. No experience is needed – you just need to be hands-on and a good communicator. People from past careers such as Firemen, factory staff, police officers, receptionists, builders, teachers and more have all become successful in-home advisors, either full-time or scheduled around their current role.
