I think it’s fair to say it’s been a long and challenging year for everyone in varying degrees and circumstances. The landscape has changed globally, and closer to home it has changed significantly in terms of how we work, where we work and when we work. I am delighted to say that we are engaged with employers who have grasped the nettle and have step changed the working environment to reflect these needs.
Our client is no exception, it is a business continually evolving and flexing with the times whilst recognising the necessity for a first-class sales operation to ensure sustained growth. These guys are seriously driven by a passion for innovation and solutions, harmoniously balanced with a ‘can do ‘attitude.
So no surprises that they are looking for the best in class! No less that a high potential individual to join their business as a:
