Software firm's pitch for 20 sales recruits
A Co Down company is offering 20 people a career break in sales with an 'Apprentice'-style application process.
Newry firm Dealtronic, which launched in 2012, provides software which allows businesses to create their own promotions.
Managing director and founder Peter McCaul is looking for people who are currently unemployed or looking for a new challenge to take part in a pitch event which could lead to a minimum one-year contract with his sales team, with a competitive salary plus commission.
Chosen finalists will have the opportunity to grow their sales skills in a real-life sales environment as they set about selling the Dealtronic brand.
Mr McCaul said that the process is a chance for those who may have a lack of experience in their CV or, for one reason or another, find themselves unemployed.
"I want to see people with enough passion, drive and commitment that none of these negatives matters – then Dealtronic will do the rest," he said.
"This opportunity is not just for people with a sales background. Dealtronic has had great success in its opening months due to the determination and talent we have in our dynamic team and what we want to do is add to this.
"We have plans to grow further into the UK and Republic of Ireland soon and further a field in the future and we want ambitious and hardworking people to help us reach this goal.
"There is no other software on the market at the minute that can help SMEs achieve greater sales and profits in the way that Dealtronic can.
"We have a mantra which is 'By helping other businesses succeed we shall thrive' and it's working very well in these challenging times."
Interested parties must register a CV with Dealtronic and those who get a callback will be invited to an Apprentice-style sales pitch day taking place on February 20 in the Department for Employment and Learning (DEL) headquarters in Belfast.
The panel will comprise Dealtronic's Peter McCaul, Art Ruddy from the department and Jim Finnegan, the managing director of a leading communications specialist business.
If you wish to apply for the process, please send a cover note and CV to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, February 15.
