Why a Trainee Sales role with us?
According to a 2017 survey conducted by Heidrick & Struggles, nearly 15 percent of Fortune 500 CEOs got their start in sales.
We’re not looking for experience or industry knowledge, we have years of expertise and are offering comprehensive training to ensure that you reach your full potential. What you have to bring to the table is the desire to succeed, self-motivation, untapped talent, tenacity and discipline.
There is no ceiling at StratumFive, our CEO started his career in our sales team. We’re proud to be a meritocratic organisation that recognises and promotes internal talent.
No need for you to relocate, we are a fully remote working organisation. We have people across the globe and work hard to make sure teams and individuals receive training and ongoing development and are fully integrated with their teams wherever in the world they may be.
Our sales team is made up of smart, driven individuals who with the backing of our industry leading training deliver complex technology solutions to a blue chip client base. What do they have in common? They are all inspired by challenge, willing to push themselves to achieve their goals and dedicated to self improvement and professional development. They also all joined us with absolutely no prior sales experience, we love raw talent!!
How do you get the job?
Our recruitment process is tough and we make no apologies for that. We want the best and our process ensures that we find those individuals that have what it takes to become truly professional and successful salespeople. We do this by mimicking our sales process stage by stage.
- Stage one – Send us your CV, easy right! Why? Cold outreach is the first stage and exposing yourself to potential rejection is vital for success in sales.
- Stage two – Written questionnaire. Why? We want to see how you write and how you express yourself and we want to give you the opportunity to show us how curious you are about us.
- Stage three – Send us a video. Why? In this role you will be presenting to blue chip companies and you have to demonstrate the ability and confidence to be able to do that (we’ll do the polishing you just have to provide the promise)
- Stage four – Formal face to face interview/assessment. Why? Our Client Managers have visited our clients and prospects across the globe. That is why we would like to see how you can hold your own in a boardroom and close the deal when the pressure is on.
What's in it for you?
We’d be lying if we said this isn’t hard work, it is!! Those that make it are exceptionally driven and motivated to hit targets and develop a career in this exciting, rewarding and unique industry. They are able to pick themselves up and keep driving forward even on the bad days. They are able to embrace the training, take the feedback and trust the process. We will be with you every step of the way, your success is our success and nothing makes us happier to see our people fulfilling their career ambitions and personal aspirations.
We pay a generous base salary and on top of that of course you’ll be rewarded financially for achieving sales targets, so we expect you to be motivated by earning potential. You’ll also be working for a highly respected organisation with a blue chip client base and excellent ongoing training. Once your initial training is complete you will progress into an Executive Sales role with an OTE c£65k+. We understand that we have high expectations of our team and so we recognise that downtime is important, that’s why we finish at lunchtime on Fridays and receive up to 44 days holiday per year upon completion of probation.
