What are the benefits of using Pareto to find great salespeople?

Over two decades, we’ve worked hard to develop a streamlined graduate sales recruitment process that really works. We do the leg work so that you don't have to, and save you the time searching for that perfect individual.

We meticulously evaluate each candidate even before they are invited to an assessment day. From there, we narrow down to the best of the best so we can confidently offer each of our clients the very top sales talent. With Pareto, you’re guaranteed sales results without having to invest hours in the initial training of your newest salesperson.

What happens if a candidate leaves the role?

We are very confident that we will find you candidates who will excel in the role and add huge value to your business. However, we understand that sometimes a role doesn’t work out and your new hire could leave their job with you. If your graduate leaves your role in the first 3 months we will promise to re-fill the post free of charge. If your newest executive hire leaves in the first 12 months we will recruit a replacement.
