Join Us - Experienced Salespeople

Have you previously worked in a sales role and keen to see if your skills are transferable? Do you enjoy the buzz of sales but want to work for a company that will challenge, develop and reward you? Well here at Alexander Lloyd, we have taken people on who have sales experienced and we have trained and developed them into Recruiters. We run an 8-week course, giving you all the tools, tricks and training to use your existing sales skills and developing them in a recruitment toolbox.

How do sales come into play when it comes to recruitment? Well, a large aspect of our day-to-day is business development; selling our services to new and existing clients over the phone, and also selling to our candidates, whether that’s a new job, an exciting new company or just having a catch up call.

So yes, sales is a large part of what we do, but at Alexander Lloyd, we focus on the relationship side of things. We truly believe that if you can build a lasting relationship with your clients and candidates, then the sales part is much easier.

We are very fortunate in that we’ve been around for over 2 decades, we are known in all the markets we recruit into, but we’re also known in the local area. These are some of the things we’re known for; our training and development of our staff, the way we regard our clients and candidates, our legacy and reputation, the retention rate of our staff (over 8 years tenure) and our ability to use technology to find a needle in a haystack for our clients.

We truly believe that given the right tools, anyone can become a recruiter, but to become a great recruiter is down to the individual; you need to have tenacity, ambition, drive and the want; the want to build relationships, become a proud ambassador of our brand, and the desire to earn money whilst doing all those things.
