Sales & Business Development

Our founder has 10 years of experience working in media and advertising sales before embarking on decade in recruitment, so you could say we’re perfectly placed to support when it comes to recruiting sales and business development roles. As not only do we understand the recruitment process, but we understand what makes a good salesman both in terms of established skills, and attributes at the start of their career.

We recruit a wide variety of B2B sales positions, across every industry sector from IT to Agriculture, and retail to charity. We’re focussed on commercial, professional motivated sales professional with a variety of attributes, as opposed to any person with the right background on their CV. We believe sales is as much about the right personality and attitude as it is knowledge, so don’t go with an agency that just farms over CV applications without meeting their candidates. Come to an agency that sources you the right CVs by pro-active targeting of professionals within the region.

Here’s some examples of key sales and business development roles that we recruit:

Business Development Manager / Business Development Executive

If you seek an all round sales professional either as a stand alone role or for a division, we can help. We understand that a good business developer is not just about closing deals, but about networking, brand awareness, telemarketing, presenting, research and upselling all mixed together.

Sales Manager / Sales Executive

Looking for somebody to close deals and break down gatekeepers, or perhaps you need somebody to motivate and train other people to do it? We understand the attributes that make a confident and successful cold caller or team manager.

Head of Sales / Head of Business Development

Top level strategic sales leaders are hard to come by, especially when you’re looking for a particular dynamic and way of working to compliment stakeholders. We offer a full Executive Search service for clients across our regions, we offer market mapping, competitor targeting, candidate research, personality profiling, salary benchmarking and 20 years of experience across sales and recruitment, to ensure we find you  the leader you’re looking for.

Everything Else

If your position does not fit into one of the above areas, please still give us a call. This is just an overview of the most common positions we recruit, but if you have something a bit different, or perhaps don’t even know what you want yet, give us a call. We can work on any commercial sales or business development position, provided we’re given the insight into what you want and need.

Here’s a few questions and answers about our sales & business development services:

What are the key locations that you cover?

Being based just south of Cambridge in Sawston, the Cambridgeshire region is our core area, but secondary to this we also offer a full range of recruitment services for sales and business development across East Anglia. So areas such as Norwich, Ipswich, Haverhill, Thetford, Ely, Peterborough, Huntingdon, St Ives, Newmarket, Stowmarket, Bury St Edmunds, Kings Lynn and Downham Market are all core areas for us.

Added to this we offer recruitment for Sales & Business Development throughout Hertfordshire, Essex, Bedfordshire and London. As we believe that it’s the work, and approach we take that makes us successful as opposed to just our location. And with such a lot of poorly managed recruitment services around, we often find we can provide better services out of area than some of our clients can find locally.

More information on our locations is covered on the following pages:

East Anglia
Northern Home Counties
London

What types if Industry Sectors do you recruit for?

We don’t specialise in any sector, we specialise in sales,  and business development staff regardless of industry sector. Naturally because our core area is Cambridge, we tend to do a lot of recruitment in areas such as IT, software, medical, pharmaceutical and scientific. But we are equally happy recruiting sales staff for packaging companies.

How much does it cost?

There is a full breakdown of costs on our Client Service Options page, and information about our most advanced service option here Executive Search
