Matthew came to us seeking a new permanent role, and through an initial telephone conversation we were confident that his high quality experience was potentially suitable for some of our vacancies. We invited Matthew in for a face to face discussion on his aspirations in terms of future role, company and salary level. It was a great meeting, Matthew is a professional, well presented candidate with strengths in face to face business development. He demonstrated honesty, integrity, and a real drive to succeed and do well for his employer. He was hoping to secure a role with a strong well established company, involving face to face business development but not working from home. Having been based from home for a number of years, Matthew was looking to become part of a team again.
After gaining detailed insight into Matthew’s ideal next career move, we were able to see clearly the type of client he would work best with. We contacted the Sales Director of one of our clients, as we knew they were seeking a new member of the team, outlined the details of Matthews experience, and gave them an insight into his character, demeanour, professionalism and so on. We were then able to secure an interview for him for a Business Development role.
Matthew was fantastic throughout the whole process and secured the role following the 2-stage interview process with the client, enabling him to continue in business development in an area close to home, become part of a team and also receive a pay increase, generous bonus structure and company car to boot.
Having caught up with Matthew over the months after he started, we know that he is really enjoying his new role and is keen to develop volumes of new business for his new employer.
And great news from our client too. The Sales Director who offered Matthew the role has since commented on many occasions that he is doing really well, and that they are very pleased with him!
