How to pick the right sales recruitment agency for you

Thursday, July 20, 2017

Have you been looking for a new sales role? How are you finding it? You’ve probably noticed that trying to find a new role is actually pretty hard. It can be time-consuming. It can be disheartening. It can be downright frustrating! That’s why more and more people are turning to sales recruitment agencies to help make the whole process easier.

With a rising number of sales recruitment agencies in the UK, and especially in London, it can be hard to know which one is the best for you to choose. Here are some things tips to help you choose the right one for you.

Find the sales recruitment agency for your industry

Not every sales recruitment agency will focus on your industry or even your type of sales. If you sell software, you are going to want to make sure you find a software sales recruitment agency. This is because, as a software sales recruitment specialist, they are already going to have those software sales roles you’re looking for. They will also have the connections to the types of companies you are wanting to work for. As an added bonus, they will have a better understanding of the industry and be better able to recognize a great software salesperson.

Find the sales recruitment agency that is advertising the types of jobs you want

With a quick look at an agency's website you, can determine if they’ve got the right roles for you. Do all the roles seem too junior or too senior? Is there a good variety of roles, or even a good number of roles advertised? If there is nothing that fits you, don’t disregard them completely, but focus your energies on those sales recruitment agencies advertising what you’re looking for.

Find the sales recruitment agency that provides the best support

While you’re looking at the website, does it look like they’re going to support you through the job process? A great sales recruitment agency will have all the resources you should need, from tips on creating the best CV to handling the interview process. Check out their social media as well. Are they posting things that would be relevant and helpful to you?

Find the sales recruitment specialists that will treat you like more than just a CV.

A good sale recruitment agency should treat you like more than just a placement or target reached. They should never be pushy or aggressive, pushing you towards roles you don’t want. Working with a sales recruitment specialist should be a partnership, with both of you working together to get the best result.

Find the recruitment agency with a good reputation

A great way to find a recruitment agency is to ask your friends or collogues for recommendations.   Let the recruitment agency's reputation speak for itself. If they’ve done a great job previously, people won’t hesitate to mention them, meaning you can be a bit more certain that you’ve made the right choice in choosing them.
