IT sales | The very core of a successful B2B sales enterprise is the relationship that flourishes between the customer and the sales representative. The sales representative must present the ideology and ethos of their company and see through this relationship, ultimately to a successful sale. Amongst many others, we currently work with a leading global B2B Sales and Marketing company and exclusively recruit for them in several locations across the globe. We have a solid understanding of the nature of this business, the required experience, personality and knowledge structures that make a sales team an award winning sales team. Building a solid team has the direct effect of pushing up productivity and profit. Ensuring that the representatives are the right fit, we source from the relevant backgrounds, understanding that lack of product / technological knowledge can be detrimental to making the sale and damaging to your company growth. We have placed more than 250 individuals over the last 18 months in one company alone, and with a stunningly highly achieved representative 100% bonus rate, this showcases that we source for the best sales outcome on your behalf and not just to fill a seat.

We will deliver to you, relevance, skill and team fit in an enviable time frame. Having worked through the years with such companies as AKQA, Rufus Leonard and McCormack Morrison, our pipeline is ripe for the picking. So whether you need a digital innovator, storyteller, Front-end Web developer or .NET developer, we will be the only call you need to make.

insurance | With the hub of UK insurance companies ideally situated on our doorstep, we have the ability to provide a very integrated recruitment partnership. Working across the board with broking houses, underwriting agencies as well as direct insurers, we have established ourselves as the lead provider of insurance candidates. With increasingly more and more companies moving out to Chelmsford, we have been at the forefront of assisting in these moves and re-sourcing the talent to fill these large scale organisations, and as such have speedily established ourselves as the key resource for insurance placements.
