We believe hiring people based on a CV is wrong, instead, we focus on ‘playing to win’ and structure our recruitment process around abilities, behaviours and competencies.
We are passionate about breaking the norm and challenging how organisations recruit their future champions.

For organisations looking to recruit sales people, Raw Talent run their bespoke Sales Academy process. Looking at the widest talent pool possible and identifying candidates who match the organisation's profile.
For individuals looking to start a career in sales, Raw Talent looks past their CV, their education and their prior experience to speak to the individual. Understanding their motivations, desires and commitment to securing a sales career. Candidates are then invited to showcase their ability at a Sales Academy day.
