A role that combines a sports enthusiast with sales. It is as simple as that!
Naturally, as a sporting individual, you are ambitious, competitive and you never like losing. Those traits run parallel with what it takes to be a good salesperson. In order to be the best in a sales environment you have to work hard, much like training for an important match or event; you can never give up, which naturally compliments the attitude to be successful in sport; and always strive for more – the very best sportspeople never settle for their last achievement – and that is reflected in the environment in recruitment, you always want to do better!
