When a sales position at your firm becomes available, you want to fill it as soon as possible and with the strongest candidate attainable. Of course, saying it is easier than doing it. And the longer it takes you to find someone, the more money you’ll lose.
While it’s certainly crucial to locate the best possible fit for your organization, the longer the sales personnel hiring process takes, the more costly (and frustrating) it gets.
Working with a sales recruitment agency is one solution to this challenge that an increasing number of companies are finding to be both productive and cost-effective. Working with Pearl Lemon Recruitment means working with one of the most experienced teams in the industry, comprising both recruiters and sales professionals.
Working with a sales recruitment agency comes at a price, and you may be wondering if it’s worthwhile.
Expert sales headhunters, like those on the Pearl Lemon Recruitment team, can support you in a variety of ways to improve your sales personnel recruiting process, as well as the success and durability of your hire.
Here are some of the ways that employing a sales recruitment agency London will help you improve your hiring process, from lowering stress to saving money through reduced search costs, a faster time to hire, and decreased attrition of those who are hired.
By submitting to a variety of job boards, social networking sites, and your own professional website, you may believe you’ve cast a wide enough net. You might be on the proper path if you just target active sales staff prospects or those actively looking for new work (typically those who are already unemployed). Limiting your sales staff recruiting efforts to places where candidates must be actively looking for work, on the other hand, means you’re missing out on a critical group of candidates: passive candidates.
It’s no surprise that many of the finest salesmen are already in sales and have a stable career that they might not want to leave. These candidates are in high demand, but they are difficult to find because they are not proactively looking for new work.
According to LinkedIn, 85% of job seekers are passive, which means they’re looking for new opportunities but won’t go out of their way to find them; you’ll have to go out of your way to let them see what you have to offer.

You almost certainly committed a few major errors in that job advertising you were considering creating on your own. Perhaps the job description didn’t capture the attention of the right people, or the job specification was full of specialty industry jargon that turned off qualified candidates from other disciplines.
