Executive Sales Recruitment

As experts in executive sales recruitment, our Senior consultants at Cranford Executive understand the importance of the ‘bigger picture’. Choosing the right person to drive forward your sales department takes more than a simple skills search, which is why we’ve honed our recruitment processes to deliver tangible results and direct genuine talent to your board for selection.

The Secret of Senior Sales Recruitment

To succeed in a Senior Sales position, candidates need to demonstrate key attributes beyond knowledge of the sales process, methodology and ambition – and these can differ between organisations. In order to assess potential executives, we first need to understand your broader business objectives.

This is why our recruitment procedure starts with a face-to-face meeting with our clients – we need to fully immerse ourselves in your organisation, and create a clear picture of the type of senior sales candidate that would be a natural fit for your requirements.

In addition to our very ‘hands on’ approach, we also use an innovative search and selection tool, ExecSelect  – this gives you complete control over the recruitment process, unlocking vital information needed to secure the best sales talent for your business as it currently stands, and for your future success.

From Business Development Manager to Sales Director

Recruitment in this area is ultimately driven by your bottom line and plans for growth. Who’s the best person to take your business forward? What kind of candidate will be able to elevate your sales proposition and provide a measurable improvement on your profits?

The good news is that by building a solid partnership with your organisation from the outset, we can tailor our recruitment campaign to ensure that candidates meet all the relevant criteria. We appreciate the pressures of managing a business, so after that initial meeting, we’ll only request your time when absolutely necessary.


The roles we can help you recruit for include, but are not limited to:

  • Sales Director
  • Business Development Manager
  • Inside Sales
  • Sales Teams
  • Head of Sales
  • Commercial Director
  • National Sales Manager


Traditional Recruitment with a Focus on your Future

While we use the latest recruitment software to help you make the right selection for your Senior Sales roles, we also believe in the more traditional, proactive and personal approach.

Your dedicated Account Manager will take care of the hiring process from start-to-finish, assisting with job descriptions, behaviour analysis and psychometric testing: only qualified Executives with a demonstrable track record and an appropriate cultural fit will make the shortlist.
