We’re launching our new Sales Graduate Scheme - and we want YOU
At GoCardless, we’re proud to work with an incredibly diverse, driven and interesting team. We’re always looking for creative ways to hire and develop amazing people. So as we move into 2017, we’re delighted to announce the launch of our very first Sales Graduate Scheme.
In this post, we’ll answer the following key questions:
- What does the grad scheme involve?
- What’s the recruitment process like?
- Why GoCardless? Why now?
How we hire Inbound Sales Development Reps
Following our $13m Series C funding round to improve our UK offering whilst continuing the quest for global expansion, the need to effectively scale and ramp the sales team has become more important than ever. As a result, we've revisited the way we prepare, interview and measure prospective Sales Development Reps (SDRs) hires.
Within the Sales Development team, prospective reps typically have little or no experience in a sales environment. This is awesome: we can hire people with tonnes of potential who haven’t picked up bad habits and are super keen to learn. But hiring people without experience requires a different type of interview process.
Sales Development at GoCardless is made up of two teams: Inbound and Outbound. In this post we’ll focus on the Inbound hiring process.
The aim of this blog post is twofold:
- To give an insight into what we’re looking for in new Inbound SDRs
- To equip interviewees with all the tools they need to succeed throughout the interview process
