ADP Recruits Sales Talent with Raw Talent Academy!


ADP Academy with Raw Talent Academy

In July 2014, ADP UK enlisted Raw Talent Academy for the second time, as it looked to expand the sales force. The two companies first partnered in early 2014, with ADP recruiting a number of consultants into its inside sales team. On this occasion, Raw Talent Academy brought the top talent from the local area to an Audition Day on the 24th July 2014 at the iconic Mercedes Benz World Brooklands Circuit in Surrey.

Award-winning ADP, a leading global provider of Human Capital Management (HCM) solutions, were on the hunt for driven, focused and sales-minded individuals to join their growing business, working out of their UK head office in Chertsey, Surrey.

With the aim of inspiring both candidates and clients, the audition day was held at Mercedes Benz World where some of the world’s most recognisable – and fastest – cars are on display. Raw Talent Academy attracted a large number of candidate applications for the ADP academy, demonstrating the competitiveness of the current job market, especially for rare opportunities like this.

All candidates went through Raw Talent Academy’s unique process that included both telephone and face to face interviews, as well as their innovative FacePitch process. The candidates were then whittled down until only the top 20 received an invite to the audition day.

The day saw the invited candidates undertake a series of real life business tasks, whilst being assessed by both ADP’s senior management team, as well as Raw Talent Academy assessors. Raw Talent Academy were also happy to unveil a brand new business task for this audition day. The unique Audition Day process has been designed by Raw Talent Academy to showcase the candidates abilities so that clients can judge the candidates based on what they can do and not what is on their CV.

The day was a complete success as ADP offered a total of 6 individuals a position.
