The Importance of Sales Recruitment to the Sales Industry

Thursday, May 18, 2017

The best type of partner is one who understands you. Through good times or bad, you know you can rely on them, they’ll help with the hard task- they get you, they know what’s important- That’s the way it should be with your recruitment agency. Sales recruitment agencies are the perfect love match. Don’t believe me? Here is why sales recruitment agencies are so important for the sales industry.

Because they lighten the load. Hiring someone is a lengthy process- from advertising, reviewing CV’s, interviewing etc. Sales recruitment agencies do that for you. They post the ad, review the CV’s and only when they’ve found someone great do you even need to lift a finger. In a busy world, time is money- agencies save you a lot of time, leaving you to focus on more important things.

Because they know sales: Or rather, they know sales people. They know the skills required, and understand targets and achievements. They can read between the lines and find those real star performers. They can get that top talent because they recognize what it is, how to find it, and how to get them. If you’re an IT company, it makes good sense that you would contact an IT sales recruitment agency- they know your industry and understand the skill set required.

Sales recruitment agencies focus on just that- sales. The focus isn’t divided, the industry knowledge not watered down by any other industry or job type.

Because candidates use recruitment agencies.  If you’re a top sales person looking for a new role within software- it makes sense that the company you’re going to call is a software sales recruitment agency. Sales recruitment agencies in the UK all have a network of companies and candidates that can easily be used to find great matches, and often a lot quicker matches than if you were searching alone.   

Sales Recruitment Agencies want you to succeed

Any agency, be they IT sales recruitment agencies, or a software sales recruitment agencies, they want to succeed. The best way to do that is to provide companies with great candidates.  This means you’re more likely to get better quality candidates to fill your roles, meaning again, less time searching. They want to impress you and make your life easier so you will use them again in the future.

There is a lot of talk suggesting the eventual decline of sales recruitment agencies. Robots will eventually replace them all! Although if you think about what makes someone a successful sales person- it’s their creativity, drive, intuition, and charisma that makes them stand out and succeed. A robot can’t replicate that. Those are uniquely human traits and require another human to recognize them. No matter what changes the sales industry face, recruitment agencies will simply adapt with them. They will never not be important. Both parties need each other to continue. Like any good partnership, they’re better together.
