The Academy

Our unique and innovative academy process is your chance to showcase your ability and secure a rewarding career in sales with Bartercard. Over the next 3 weeks we will be interviewing talented individuals like yourself, who are ambitious and driven to succeed. You will showcase your talent through a series of sales based business tasks at an Audition Day, at The Grand Connaught Rooms in London on the 13th November 2015. The top 20-25 candidates will be invited following a telephone and face to face interview with our team at Raw Talent.

Candidates will be assessed, not on how well your CV reads or how many grades you have, but on how you perform in teams, under pressure and in real life business and sales tasks. Think ‘The Apprentice’ squeezed into a single day’s process. 

About the Client – Bartercard

Principle Founders Brian Hall and Andrew Federowsky, Wayne Sharpe and first employee Maree St Clair, started Bartercard on the Gold Coast, Australia, in 1991. This team shared a vision for Bartercard to become the world’s largest trade exchange and a globally recognised business-to-business brand.

Bartercard is a simple, flexible barter system that converts slow moving stock, downtime, spare capacity or vacant seats into extra sales.

Bartercard is a business marketplace with 55,000 cardholders who “barter-trade” over £33m every month with 72 offices around the world, 8 of those offices are based throughout England with the head office in Slough and over 600 staff serving their members.

Since the launch of Bartercard in 1991, it has revolutionised the way businesses manage cash flow. Bartercard’s world-leading Trade Exchange system now enables over 55,000 card holders in seven countries to benefit from the cashless economy of barter. Bartercard connects businesses in a new marketplace where members develop new connections with each other.

Their continuing success in the market has been recognised with awards such as Franchisor of the year and other business awards.
