Outside Sales Recruiters

Hire top-performing sellers

Hire outside sales professionals

Contrary to popular belief, outside sales isn’t dead. In fact, outside sales is thriving as one of the fastest growing areas of sales, and won’t be slowing down anytime soon.

By placing outside sales representatives in the field to hunt for new customers, upsell existing clients, manage accounts, and develop territories, companies can drastically increase their market presence and books of business.

For these reasons, outside sales should be a core function of any growing organization. Highly experienced and motivated reps can open doors to unlimited opportunity.

Outside sales recruiting experts

ACA Talent has specialized in sourcing, recruiting, and placing outside sales professionals since 2004. Our experienced recruiting team has partnered with Fortune 500, mid-market, and boutique firms to build robust outside sales organizations across North America.

Every year, we place thousands of outside sales reps in roles ranging from one-call closers to strategic sales. Our services include Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO), executive search, and project-based solutions.

Whether a client needs to build an outside sales force from the ground up, or launch a strategic search for an outside sales leader, we can build a solution to recruit and hire the talent you crave.

Outside sales may not be the right fit for every candidate because success in this role requires a specific combination of tangible and intangible skills.

Our recruiters work closely with our clients to develop a candidate profile that’s effective and realistic. Next, we tap into our expansive internal databases and recruiter networks to quickly pipeline talent.

Because fit is crucial to long-term retention, we qualify candidates based on a matrix of factors, including past earnings, closing skills, hunting and lead generation abilities, sales strategies, and accolades. In short, candidates should be able to quantify their achievements.

Your company culture also plays an important part in helping us to match the right candidate to your organization. Our humanized recruitment process helps us deepen our understanding of how the candidate might be a match, and creates a positive candidate and client experience.

By making data-driven decisions, our clients are able to hire and retain quality sales professionals.

Our outside sales recruiters fill a variety of roles, including:

  • Account executives
  • Business development managers
  • Direct sales representatives
  • Door-to-door sales representatives
  • Enterprise sales representatives
  • Outside sales managers
  • Small business sales representatives

We place salaried and commission-oriented (W2) sales representatives across a diverse array of industries:

    • In the past, recruiting all fell on the sales manager’s shoulders. It used up so much of our time at the expense of running our business. ACA Talent has made it possible for me to focus on my job with little concern over manpower. It’s like pushing the “easy” button with them.

      — Regional Sales Manager, Security Firm
    • My recruiter at ACA Talent intuitively knows what kinds of candidates I want to see, so I don’t have to see four candidates to get to the one that I want.

      — Field Sales Manager, Security Firm
