Sales & Marketing

Using our extensive sales and marketing talent network to place candidates across B2B and B2C businesses.

Sales and marketing – the ultimate partnership.

Sales and marketing go hand in hand. For any successful modern business, the functions need to work together seamlessly. But, the personalities and skillsets have grown more complex and specific as sales become more specialist and hybrid-marketers become more common

CMD has the strongest network of active and passive talent in the South West. A bold statement. But it’s true.

[We’ve worked with some of the leading sales and marketing talent in the South West. Effective sales and marketing teams are essential to the success of modern organisations, no matter what sector you’re operating in. We’ve got a network of talent spanning B2B and B2C sector specialisms.

One of the critical KPIs for our consultants is regular communication with their candidate network, even when we don't have an active role to share, resulting in a candidate network that trusts us implicitly.

We proactively identify, engage and qualify emerging talent in the area so our database is constantly evolving.

“From the outside, the available talent pool for sales and marketing looks plentiful. But in reality, the fast-paced nature of the world we operate in has meant driving business growth in an ever more competitive and globalised environment has become a bigger challenge than ever – and not everyone is up to the task”

Sales recruitment is challenging. Finding, and motivating great sales talent is not an easy feat. Your business needs to be competitive and nurture sales candidates correctly in order to retain the best. Marketing has got ever more complex. The subdisciplines that have emerged as a result of digital marketing, as well as the continued requirement for traditional and strategic marketing skills, has meant the makeup of a successful marketing team is more complex than most other departments. Specialist marketers are becoming more common with the increased demand for SEO, PPC and digital advertising.

Whether your business growth is reliant on savvy account managers, or aggressive, go-getting new business talent we have the network to meet your needs. When it comes to hiring your next marketing employee, we can help you identify the right talent. Whether you’re looking for talent specialising in in-house, strategic marketing campaigns or a short-term branding and digital project worker, we have the connections to help your business.
