I have a new services business which will be marketing a product to professional services firms in the UK. Unfortunately, for reasons which are unavoidable and not material to this question, I have to live in the US.
So, I need a sales person to go and close the sales. Unfortunately, advertising on gumtree (the UK's equivalent of craigslist) has not helped. No-one I know is especially keen, either.
I'm looking to recruit someone, preferably with a sales or professional services background, who can do the sales for a generous commission (25% of the profits on each sale to the clients they sign up, in the first year of each such client using our service). As this is such a key role, it is almost equivalent to a partner. I'm not sure if that really impacts recruitment strategy at the candidate-solicitation state.
