We know the best sales professionals are rare and they are extremely difficult to find through traditional recruitment methods. The reality is: successful salespeople are not looking for work, they are working, and need to be proactively recruited.

We complete an exhaustive search of all relevant candidates working within your industry, contact them directly, and pitch them on your opportunity. We then interview and assess the best talent before presentation to our clients.

If you’re looking to hire Great Salespeople, with proven talent, anywhere in the world, we invite you to connect and schedule a recruitment discovery call.

What clients say about us…

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Boomerang Media has used The Sales Experts for senior sales recruitment over the past year during what has been an extremely challenging time for recruitment. Their approach is thoroughly professional, consultative, diligent, has scored notable successes for this company and has proved highly cost-effective. We intend to continue using Wyn and his team going forward. I cannot recommend them enough.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Working with The Sales Experts has been phenomenal! Right off the bat, the search for our resources in the US and Europe has been easier and way faster compared to the other recruiting firms we’ve contracted to help find our needed niche resources (not just sales by the way). We’ve been really impressed with TSE’s speed, resourcefulness, and the quality of the candidates that have been endorsed to us. And with a very professional team, it is a real pleasure to work with them!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Sales Experts were an amazing partner in our search for highly talented Business Development VP’s to head up our sales team. They vetted all possible candidates and presented options that were well prepared and on brief. We hired 3 outstanding executives. All in this was a great experience for Spark and I would not hesitate to recommend The Sales Experts to anyone looking to find experienced sales professional.

  1. Establish search parameters:

Examine the difficulties particular to the organisation and the position. Determine the necessary knowledge, skills, and abilities while providing clients with fresh perspectives on how to think about their needs. When appropriate, challenge clients’ presumptions and offer them alternate role-conceptualization ideas.

Create a tailored position and candidate specification that includes information about the organisation, the job’s responsibilities, objectives, and major difficulties as well as the experience, credentials, and abilities needed to succeed. Determine the client priorities that will shape the search process

  1. Determine search strategy:

Conduct targeted research into businesses and industries to identify individuals with the necessary skill sets and credentials, enhancing our in-depth familiarity with and connections to high performing sales professionals across industries and roles. Develop a long list of prospects best qualified for the role, with the goal of providing real options for clients to consider

Speak with third-party connections to further discover and qualify prospects; this is a key component of our strategy because it leads to more fruitful long-list of qualified candidates.

  1. Recruit and assess prospects:

Speak with possible candidates to gauge their interest in the position, utilising our knowledge of candidate interests and goals to urge promising candidates to take into account new opportunities.

Hold thorough competency-based interviews with applicants based on the demonstrated abilities, knowledge, skills, and aptitudes listed in the employment specification.

Create a short list of applicants who meet the requirements and are interested in the job.

  1. Invite the best candidates for client interviews:

Compile a list of the applicants who meet the requirements the best, based on a thorough textual analysis and assessment.

Using informal outside opinions on each candidate, we can validate and improve our understanding of their accomplishments and track record while also gaining valuable information into their reputation and past performance.

During our interview process, conduct in-depth executive capabilities assessments using the Sales Hunter Intelligence Evaluation Assessment.

Information about candidates combined with our Sales Hunter Intelligence Evaluation are documented on our Sales Assessment Profile and attached the candidate’s CV/Résumé to present to the client. Candidate CVs are never reformatted, edited or corrected. We will always provide an unbiased, unedited presentation of the candidate.

Following the client’s selection of the top candidate, carry out background checks and references as requested by the client.

Participate in contract negotiations to help complete the search.

Communicate regularly with client and placement during transition.

After the search is over, periodically check in with the client and the candidate to see how the placement is doing and how the transition is coming along.
