Our Ethos is to take the risk out of recruitment, why rely on someone simply telling us they will be good within a sales role… Surely it’s better if they prove it?

Raw Talent Academy identifies new talent who possess the correct attitude and drive for sales, who are mouldable and who have the ability to learn using techniques that resemble real life scenarios.

Raw Talent Academy conducts auditions to assess for the key competencies and attributes that are fundamental in all successful sales people; common sense, determination, intelligence, work ethic, winning mentality, desire to succeed, and confidence. We pride ourselves at Raw Talent Academy on the fact we look past degrees, qualifications and career histories to see the attributes required to be a sales superstar.

We work within the following sectors – Recruitment, IT, Medical, HR & Payroll Outsourcing, Insurance & Finance  – providing tailored and industry leading training across all of them through our expert coaching team.

We are hiring!

We believe hiring people based on a CV is wrong. We are passionate about breaking the norm and helping you to hire, retain and train the best people, irrespective of their CV, education or background.
