Acumen

Sales Growth on your Doorstep

Full-Time Sales Person

Many businesses face the challenge of funding and recruiting a dedicated professional to win sales in the cross-border market – and, here again, Acumen can help.  Acumen will fund up to 50% of the cost of a Sales Person’s salary in the first year. The maximum cost covered can be up to €37,500/£30,000 with Acumen paying up to €18,750/£15,000.

Acumen will work with you to:

  • Establish if there is a viable medium-term opportunity – and if the opportunity can be sustained in the long term
  • Provide assistance and advice on the recruitment process and methodology
  • Draw up a plan to integrate new sales appointee and ensure that s/he is adequately supported and trained
  • Provide advice on how to retain new appointees

Typical outcomes

Companies who have availed of the Full–Time Sales Person Support typically report:

  • Identification of weaknesses in existing cross-border market arrangements, the development and implementation of a corrective strategy;
  • Increased penetration of the cross-border market;
  • Substantial increase in sales yield;
  • Increased brand presence and profile to allow longer-term development
