The Olympus KeyMed partnership continues


Olympus KeyMed Academy In September 2014, Olympus KeyMed – an international leader in the manufacture and supply of specialised medical and industrial equipment – were again looking to hire Trainee Territory Managers with Raw Talent Academy. We have worked in partnership with Olympus KeyMed for over 2 years and have placed a large portion of their sales team across the UK.

Formed in 1970, Olympus KeyMed have grown from a staff of four to become firmly established as an international leader in the manufacture and supply of specialised medical and industrial equipment. Today, the Olympus KeyMed Group employs over 1,000 people at its purpose-built headquarters in Southend-on-Sea, Essex, England and subsidiaries in Ireland, Bolton in Lancashire and Plymouth, Devon.

Raw Talent Academy’s unique process started with them carrying out a comprehensive profile of Olympus KeyMed to fully understand the type of candidates that not only succeed, but thrive at the company. Following the profiling, Raw Talent Academy sourced the top 20-25 candidates from the local area to attend the audition day held at the home of Watford Football Club, Vicarage Road.

As Olympus KeyMed are such a great business to work for on the run-up to the audition day Raw Talent Academy attracted hundreds of candidate applications.  

The audition day saw the invited candidates undertake a series of real life ‘Apprentice’ style business tasks while being assessed by both Olympus KeyMed’s senior management team as well as Raw Talent Academy assessors. As the day drew to a close a whopping 7 of the talented individuals were offered a position there and then! The audition day process, created by Raw Talent Academy Founder & BBC Apprentice Winner Lee McQueen, has been designed to showcase the candidates abilities so that clients can judge them based on what they can do and not what is on their CV.
