Perhaps the best way to understand our unique approach to Sales Recruitment is to understand that The Sales Experts are not recruiters that specialise in sales recruitment, rather, we are Sales Specialists that recruit the very best salespeople.
The salesperson is a different candidate and the skills and personal attributes that give them the ability to win the confidence of customers and get the sale also make it difficult to interview – we understand salespeople because we are sales specialists.
Candidates Placed Stay At Least 1 year
Candidates Placed Consistently Hit Sales Targets
Candidates Stay At Least 2 Years
What Are Your fees?
To recruit salespeople we charge a competitive flat rate fee, which is not dependant on salary level – no matter what the base salary. We do have three different flat rates with senior sales and sales director recruitments charged at slightly higher rates due to the complexity of the search. Please contact us to discuss our current fees.
What industry sectors do you recruit?
We work across all sectors! Why? Identifying the core skills and attributes that create a winning sales professional are at the essence of what we do. Finding sales professionals with experience in a particular sector is a pure research job. We have access to all the professional databases.
Identifying, which potential candidates with the sales skills, drive and heart to succeed in your sector is the art of what we do. We have the real world sales experience to understand Sales DNA and find the best performers. We study sales and teach selling skills and techniques. You know your business better than we ever could and we know salespeople better than anyone else.
We have direct experience in the following sectors:
Consumer Products FMCG
Medical Devices / Software
Financial Services / FINTECH
Mobile / Mobile Data Management
How Long Does A Search Take?
Although the are many variables to each search, we are effective and efficient and get things done! A typical search takes two to four weeks.
How Many Candidates Will You Present?
We normally present three to five Candidates. We do a great deal of work to make certain that you only meet with fully qualified candidates. If our clients wants to see a wider range of candidates then that is not a problem, although not recommended as it is our role to screen candidates on your behalf.
We do search and are not in the business of wasting your time with piles of CVs – we find the right candidates!
Do You Guarantee Your Work?
Yes, we fully guarantee our work. If a candidate leaves, for any reason, within three months we will conduct one new search at no cost.
What does 98% Success Rate mean?
This means that 98% of the salespeople that we place are in the same role 12 months later. To us this means that we are finding the right candidate for our clients because salespeople that don’t deliver results don’t last.
Where do you find your candidates?
The fact is that the best salespeople are almost never looking for work on job boards. Recruiters that advertise and send you CVs are sending you the salespeople who don’t know how to land the job they want with the company they want to work.
We research each role, find the best performing companies in that sector and then ‘headhunt’ the best performing salespeople on your opportunity. Great salespeople do change jobs, they just don’t apply for work. The best salespeople are either ‘headhunted’ or pick up the telephone and talk to the decision makers.
Will I need to deal with different recruitment consultants?
Each of our consultants performs a 360 service. This means that our recruitment consultants work with the client to define the role and skills required and then manage ever aspect of the search. We don’t delegate search to contractors in India. We wouldn’t do that to your business!
We live selling and to make sure that never changes each of our consultants spends part of their time training salespeople how to sell better, helping companies design better sales processes, and speaking to groups and organisations about sales success.
