Jayne Wogan Head of Marketing & Communications posted 7 months ago

The COVID-19 pandemic is by no means over, but with restrictions being lifted and normal life beginning to return, the Government is urging businesses and consumers alike to get the UK economy moving.   Whilst this should be a cause for celebration for UK manufacturers, it is complicated by the Job Retention Scheme support beginning to tail off from August. Unemployment is predicted to reach a 30-year high over the coming months and many UK manufacturers are facing the reality that it might not be possible for all their employees to return unless order books grow quickly and substantially.

This urgency is manifesting in an increased and renewed demand for sales professionals across our manufacturing client base to help them penetrate new customers and markets to trade their way out of the current economic furrow. So we know salespeople are in demand, but has anything changed?


DIGITALISATION

The lockdown measures enforced across the world meant that business leaders had to quickly adjust to new models of engaging with their customers.  In many respects, the pandemic accelerated the digital trends that were already in motion, forcing the manufacturers to jump into their digitalisation and technology implementation plans associated with Industry 4.0 with both feet.

Customer behaviours had been evolving and shifting towards digital channels for some time.  According to McKinsey & Company in their report The B2B digital inflection point: How sales have changed during COVID-19, customer’s preference for digitally enabled sales interactions and the ability to self-serve even in B2B has shown its sharpest increase since 2019 but the things they value most remain as speed, transparency and expertise.


REMOTE WORKING

Born of necessity due to the lockdown, the shift towards remote selling has been swift and adoption and harnessing the array of video conferencing technology for sales has been impressive and with social distancing still a priority, it looks as though it is here to stay.


WHAT ARE EMPLOYERS LOOKING FOR?

With digital channels and remote selling on the rise, many established sales professionals who have traditionally relied on their face-to-face interpersonal and rapport building skills to gain trust and customer loyalty are finding the transition challenging. 

The fact remains that the ability to sell across various channels is becoming more prevalent and with many of our clients, the personality traits and attitudes are taking an equal importance to the sales experience and product knowledge.   

Julie Thomas specialises in commercial and sales recruitment for Jonathan Lee and says "a lot of the recent focus has been on candidate profile and attitude.  We are seeing clients switch from searching for salespeople with a 'little black book' to a focus on creative, dynamic, focused hunter-gatherers who are able to adapt quickly and come up with ways to support the sales process through technology and digital channels to their advantage.

It's about recognising the times we are in, and coming up with new ways to forge and maintain relationships with customers and prospects that is driving success."   

To some extent less is more when presenting candidates for a sales role. Potential employers want to see succinct and punchy CVs that show added value, rather than extended narratives on past job responsibilities. The key things candidates should focus on in their resumés include:

  • Profile (energy, adaptability, innovation) .
  • Headline factual achievements, KPIs, Targets, major wins.  Don’t get dragged into too much detail, this will be explored at interview.
  • Industry relevance and specific technical ability where required, but also highlighting transferability where relevant.


COVID-19 has changed the way we work and it looks to me that many of those changes are here to stay, so it’s important that candidates really embrace the digital tools available to them and adapt their style and approach for the new normal.

If you are looking to hire sales professionals or if you are looking for your next role in sales, please get in contact with Julie.
