Raw Talent Academy - Sales Recruitment

Raw Talent Academy announce 71% increase on turnover


Sales recruitment and training specialist Raw Talent Academy has revealed exceptional year-on-year growth of 71% following a busy 2014. The company, founded by Apprentice Winner Lee McQueen, also saw staff numbers increase by 73% from 2013.

The supplier of entry level sales talent has grown rapidly since being founded in 2011 and also saw the number of academies they ran throughout the year increase by 93%. This increase has been driven by the company announcing a number of new partnerships with clients as well as strengthening existing partnerships across a broad range of B2B clients.

“2014 was a great year for us” said McQueen – who has spent over 15 years in the recruitment industry. “To continue with this level of growth will be a challenge but we have made some adjustments internally and feel well placed to match our business plan and double turnover again in 2015. Key to achieving this growth will be to continue our commitment to organically growing and developing our own raw talent alongside the experienced team.  The 7 new recruits who started with us in January have hit the ground running and are already adding real value to the business.”
