20k Base, 31.8k First Year OTE + Excellent Benefits
Since 2001 we have placed thousands of fantastic candidates into hundreds of amazing companies across the UK and Europe, helping them launch and develop their sales careers in the best possible environments.
As a specialist Graduate Sales Consultancy, we partner with businesses that are committed to the development of great sales talent. We help them create their resourcing strategy, build their employer profile and manage a great recruitment process before implementing a structured onboarding strategy.
With almost 20 years experience in sales, we understand what it takes to be successful within a competitive environment. We also understand how the sales landscape has changed over the years and how this has meant sales professionals have had to adapt their approach.
This understanding of the graduate sales environment is what sets us apart. It allows us to provide true consultancy to our candidates, coaching them through the various challenges they're likely to encounter and helping them prepare for their career ahead. It also means we are best placed to identify those candidates who are likely to be successful in a sales career, by being able to recognise those traits and styles that are indicative of success.
