    Employers’ Requirements

    Employers looking for sales consultants will be in search of candidates who are able to think technically about which will be most beneficial to their clients. A good sales consultant should also be extroverted and articulate, enabling customers to better understand the sales process and the products on offer. Applicants should also hold at least a bachelor’s degree in a relevant subject.

    CV Requirements

    A good CV for a sales consultancy job should go into depth about your track record of sales, as well as the type of sales product solutions that relates to previous work.

    Sales Consultancy Job Interview Preparation

    There are several key things to demonstrate during a job interview for a sales consultancy position. A technical understanding of the sector is crucial, as is expressing the technical details of the product you will be pitching, while still maintaining charisma. You may also be asked to give a demonstration sales pitch presentation to show how you would approach them while doing the job for real.

Top Tip

"Play the long game of building relationships. Customers tend to renew or do more business with people who are more invested in the relationship and can provide value. Focus more on solution/consultative selling versus hard selling."
