Flexible recruitment solutions

As there’s no set framework for recruiting for every business, we’ve devised a series of solutions to meet your unique needs. From flexible contracts to various fee options and our unique 'sales as a service' outsourcing model, we’ve got the extensive portfolio to support your needs.

After an initial consultation, we’ll recommend a relative-recruiting strategy for your business, working in partnership with you to achieve the best results. Designed to save you the time, money and resources it can take to attract the perfect candidate, our flexible contracts will allow you to either capitalise on a short term opportunity, or find that crucial long-term hire that can help turnaround your business: tailored to your industry, the amount of candidates you require and any specific requirements you may have.

As part of the flexible contracts that we offer, our fixed fee option will provide you with a guaranteed rate, leaving you safe with the knowledge that there are no hidden costs.  We understand how hard it is to let go of that superstar recruit, so if you change your mind about your short-term hire, we’re flexible in our contract lengths.

Rapid long term

By looking at the recruitment process differently, it’s no wonder that companies repeatedly turn to us to provide for them in the long-term.

Rather than placing any successful candidate into your business, you will be assigned your own account manager who will really understand what it is that you need to gain from your latest addition. They will then make their own assessments and interpretations on the talent pool we have accumulated, matching the most promising and suitable individuals into your business.

We are consistently adding to our collection of promising salespeople, helping us to deliver our promise of supplying you with that top 20% in as little as three weeks. When recruiting for you, we always look for those that have the highest potential in becoming future sales leader.

Why we are different

By understanding the current functions of your internal departments, we make sure that we’re fully equipped to go out and deliver you the best fresh talent. We’ll look at what makes you unique, and communicate your needs to prospective candidates.

For every position you need filling we’ll find three or more graduates or sales executives, hand-picking those that possess that passion and vigour for sales and success.

As part of our services we’ll not only find you top candidates who want to excel in your organisation, but we’ll provide up to 15 days of training and development for 12-18 months.  At Pareto we invest an average of 128 hours into each graduate candidate, in comparison to just 1.5 hours of invested time from standard recruitment agencies.

You can also trust that your latest recruits will learn and develop rapidly, after receiving our advanced ISMM-endorsed sales training. Teaching them the fundamentals through to the more advanced sales techniques, your newest members can apply their skills straight from when their employment with you commences. 

Sales Outsourcing

If you have an immediate need to increase your sales but can’t afford the risk of additional fixed overheads or adding to your headcount, our sales outsourcing module is perfect for you. A hassle-free option to expanding your team for your chosen period-of time, your outsourced sales staff will be fully trained by us and ready to hit the ground running in your business.
