More Info

The sales function has changed hugely since we started in recruitment; it is so much more sophisticated, more consultative, more customer driven. It is about building long term relationships to retain customers, either through face to face sales or through telesales, therefore salespeople are much more professional, legislation compliant where appropriate and as a leading telesales recruitment agency we ensure that our candidates reflect that.


Sales career expectations

Careers in sales can be fast paced. You will need be a perfect representative of the company. Your work will be assessed on the number of sales or leads you get, and the quality of those leads. It’s likely you will work on commission ote or uncapped commission, so your salary can be dependant on how successful you are in your job each month.

At entry level, you could be looking at telesales jobs or sales retail jobs. You might work as part of a telesales team or be a telesales consultant for a company. A retail sales assistant role might include selling face to face in a retail environment. Field sales jobs are also a popular entry level position for this kind of work. This can be an exciting role and you will spend most of your time out of the office.

The likelihood of progressing depends on quantifiable performance. If you manage to get leads and successful sales regularly, you could be promoted to a sales exectuive role. There are also other areas this position would open up, such as sales and marketing or business development.


What skills do you need to work in sales?

We are extremely selective about the type of candidate we recommend for sales roles; these individuals are the “faces” of your business, they are the people who leave the lasting impression about a company and so we ensure that the sales people we have interviewed will be individuals who will represent your company professionally at all times.

There are certain personality traits and skills which can realy excel your chances of getting a job in a sales role and making progress.

  • Confidence and positive attitude – If genuine, this facet of your personality will really shine through and make your clients like and appreciate you
  • Resilience – taking all things (good and bad) in your stride is essential. This belief in yourself will not only affect you, but your clients and coworkers alike.
  • Communication both ways – not only having excellent verbal and written communication skills, but being able to really listen to and respond to your customers needs is essential when securing return business and a positive reputation
  • Quick thinking – being able to think on your feet, respond on the spot to customer queries and think outside of the box in terms of effective solutions in a key aspect of making progress in a sales career.

Hello Natalie, today is my first full month in my new job and I just want to thank you again for helping me acquire such a wonderful position. You were the most helpful recruiter I had during my extremely horrible redundancy process and for that I am extremely grateful. I have mentioned you, and Alexander Hancock to some of my friends at Pipex who were in managerial positions that are now coming up for redundancy, and if you and your company is able to help them even half as much as you helped me, they will be ecstatic in their new roles, Many many thanks Colette
