Recruiting sales professionals for the public sector

The commercial side of the public sector has been expanding steadily over the past two years. This is largely a response to the growing need for public sector organisations to develop new revenue streams and thus liberate themselves from public funding.
A relatively new development within this sector, it’s uncharted territory for many of our clients. Fortunately for them, Michael Page Sales specialises in sourcing candidates for the public sector in a market traditionally dominated by private clients. We place permanent and freelance professionals at all levels, across a range of sales roles, including:
  • Internal sales
  • Field sales 
  • Account managers
  • Telesales executives
  • Sales directors
Based in seven regional centres and supported by Michael Page offices across the UK, we have 84 dedicated consultants providing on-the-spot representation for clients in:
Our market knowledge is coupled with a proven recruitment process and solution design for clients, including:
  • Advertising advice, design and content development
  • Candidate interviewing
  • Timetable/schedule support
  • Provision of a designated email address for the duration of an assignment
  • Weekly progress review by an objective party
  • Regular contact and a transparent relationship with you
 We consider ourselves ambassadors for the public sector, representing the ethics and values of our clients.  While we acknowledge that every assignment is different, one thing remains constant - our commitment to the values of equality and diversity that underpin the public sector. 
Michael Page consultants take their role as public sector representatives seriously. Familiar with the Civil Service Code and the procedure for baseline security checking, they also keep abreast of issues specific to both the public sector and to their client’s business. Our systems are ISO9001/9002 accredited and our quality department regularly audits staff to guarantee best practice.
This dedication is reflected in our status as an accredited supplier for Buying Solutions, the national procurement partner for the UK Public Services. Under the Recruitment Services Framework (for specialist recruitment and large volume recruitment), we can supply the full range of recruitment services including attraction, response, assessment and campaign delivery.
