James – Sales Negotiator


Following working as a labouring contractor and a customer service role within a local hotel, James was keen to find a new opportunity to develop his career within a different type of role.

James was flexible in terms of what kind of role that he wanted and had a range of experience from previous roles.

After seeing an advert for a Sales Negotiator role, James contacted NXT recruitment consultant Amy. Immediately, Amy arranged a meeting with James to understand his employment background and skillset.

After meeting with James, Amy identified that although James had no sales experience, he had several transferrable skills which would make him suitable for the Sales Negotiator role. Amy reviewed James’ CV, created a candidate profile highlighting his transferrable skills and how these skills would make him a suitable candidate for the role.
