Recruit Temporary Sales Staff

Since 2007, Aaron Wallis has been offering temporary sales, contract sales and interim sales Manager/Interim Sales Director recruitment solutions. Our temporary sales recruitment service enables you to hire sales professionals on a contract or interim basis perhaps to get that extra sales push at peak times, to increase appointments, to cover maternity and paternity leave, to introduce a new service offering, or to cover a vacant patch.  Also, our clients use our temporary sales staff recruitment services to provide staff to prove a concept or are simply unable to increase their headcount due to permanent recruitment freezes.

Whatever the reason, we are confident that Aaron Wallis can provide the talent to address your immediate needs at a cost that you will find impressively good value.

Our hourly charge rates are a total and full charge (inclusive of the temporary workers’ charge rate, our tax management and payroll fee, employer’s National Insurance contributions, pension and worker’s holiday entitlement:

Aaron Wallis offers fast, reliable, responsible temporary sales recruitment services at inclusive’ fees and has access to the leading sales temps and sales contractors.  Typically we can fill sales temp jobs in less than two working days.

How much do you charge for Temporary Sales Staff and Contract Sales Staff?

Sales Temps and Marketing Temps are typically paid by the hour, whereas sales contractors usually charge a day rate.  The costs vary enormously based upon the skills that you need and are all-inclusive.

Obviously, like anything in life, the higher the rate, the better the skills and experience you will be able to secure. To demonstrate the high value that Aaron Wallis can offer here are some recent example projects to help you budget for your needs:

  • Specialist IT software appointment selling role requiring a member of staff with experience of selling software at senior levels - £26 per hour.
     
  • Team of home-based telesales agents tasked with database cleansing and initial product introduction - £18 per hour
     
  • 3-month contract for a proven field sales engineer to cover long term sickness. The candidate required experience of selling engineering consumables across the Midlands - £160 per day
     
  • Temporary marketing campaign to help launch a new product into wholesale and trade distribution, requiring experience of setting up inbound marketing systems - £25 per hour.
     
  • Homebased telesales people to introduce new cleaning products into Facilities Management firms during COVID-19, requiring previous B2B telesales experience - £20 per hour
     
  • Interim sales manager to cover maternity leave requiring specific direct sales management experience of over 20 staff - £240 per day
     
  • Interim Sales Director for ongoing work for one day per week.  It needed an experienced Sales Director to implement strategy and be a resource to the Field Sales Manager and Telesales Manager - £550 per day.  See Recruit Interim Sales Manager Services for Interim Sales Management and Virtual Sales Directors
     
  • Exhibition sales staff to cover a 3-day event at the Birmingham NEC. Candidates had to have proven experience of demonstrating products at exhibitions - £350 per day.

What do your fees include?

For sales temps our fees include the temp pay rate, employer’s pension contribution (ERS), holiday pay entitlement, employers’ national insurance (NIERs), apprentice scheme levy, payroll cost and our management fee.

For sales contractors, we typically suggest that they operate their own Limited Company or work through their chosen ‘umbrella company’ so the employers’ national insurance (NIERs) is removed from the cost.

For clarity, there are no hidden costs.

When are temporary sales staff right for your business?

  • When you are looking for more fluid staffing solutions, perhaps due to a permanent recruitment freeze.
  • When the sales vacancy needs filling quickly.
  • When you do not feel it necessary to interview the candidate before the temporary contractor starts with you.
  • When you are flexible on your candidate requirements – where niche skills or industry knowledge are not required
  • When you are happy to employ less-experienced sales staff
  • When you are happy to pay the premium to employ temps over permanent staff to benefit from reduced risk.
  • When you are looking to have the flexibility to increase or decrease staff as your needs change.
  • When you would like to ‘trial’ new staff members before turning them permanent
  • When a comprehensive onboarding process is not required – i.e. they are being employed to complete tasks.  Career temps are used to being in a wide variety of contracts in different industries so can typically adapt to your requirements very quickly.
  • When you need a new perspective on a project or idea
  • When your products/solutions/service offerings are easy to pick up.
  • When you need a gap filled quickly to cover something like annual leave, staff illness, maternity/paternity cover, etc.
