Recruitment Solutions for Employers


Our specialist team has over 15 years of experience in recruiting sales people and is committed to delivering a first class recruitment service. Our senior managers all come from sales management backgrounds, so we see things from your side of the desk. We understand your time is valuable, and how important it is to find the best talent available. This is one of our specialities with our unique Recruitment Process fine-tuned to identify and deliver the best talent available, whether they are looking for a new role or not.


First Selection Contingency Recruitment



This service features the traditional selection process whereby we provide you with fully screened candidates on a 'no win- no fee basis'. We have access to the top 10 CV databases as well as having our own unique pool of over 15,000 registered sales candidates.


Executive Search



This methodology is most effective when clients are looking to attract high calibre candidates with specific skills. The strength of this approach is that it identifies the very best people, with specific skills and is not reliant on candidates being active job seekers. The benefit to clients is that it gives them access to the very best - not just the best available. First Selection has successfully developed a unique headhunting technique to effectively address positions in salary ranges usually outside the scope of the traditional executive search. Our clients have repeatedly told us that vacancies at this level are among the most challenging to resource in a cost-effective way. First Selection addresses this by providing the depth and thoroughness of search at costs which are more closely aligned with those offered by contingency recruitment agencies.

Assessment day- set up


Whilst traditional interviews may work for some people, more and more companies are looking for new and more effective ways of selecting candidates for employment. Our assessment days are a great way of seeing how candidates react within a group environment, how they interact and deal with on-the-spot exercises, these could include-


  • Group work
  • Aptitude tests
  • Role plays
  • Presentations
  • Psychometric tests

Usually after the initial exercises successful candidates are invited to the next stage one to one interview, usually on the same day. The result is that normally a decision can be made on the day. First Selection can set up and organise an assessment day for your company.
