Confidential Search – Director of Sales, Carbon Capture Startup

A pioneering carbon capture and removal start-up sought to grow their European customer base

They needed a sales leader to establish a first-on-the-ground presence in a new European region for the business. It was imperative that the successful candidate possessed a strong hunter mindset and could demonstrate a proven track record in building a client-base from the ground up. 

The start-up had attempted to find candidates through their own network, and through job-board advertisements. However, they’d not been able to find enough quality candidates through these means. As time passed, they knew they needed to increase the volume of candidates if they were to find the perfect match for their business.

Enter Gillespie Manners:

Drawing on our extensive networks and specialized knowledge of the market, we identified a shortlist of highly qualified candidates. We supported the client and candidates throughout a rigorous interview process and ultimately placed an experienced hunter sales professional on time and within budget.
