Are you a recent graduate or a professional looking to make a change and launch a career in recruitment, sales or business development?
WHAT WILL YOU BE DOING?
First of all: we like to keep things short, simple but clear.
You will be guided, trained and coached how to sell the most complex products on the market, people
You will gain the all-around skills to develop your career as a great salesperson with a commercially minded attitude towards thriving niches in tech: Fintech, SaaS, Cyber Security and eCommerce
You will learn ins and outs of recruitment, sales, business development, account management, networking and sourcing during an intensive 3 months training period with your "academy team"
Upon completion of the 3 months you will be immersed into an existing team of Recruitment Consultants focusing on your own niche in tech
You will be able to choose your specialisation in one the three PCN Academy Tracks: permanent recruiting, contract recruiting or business development/account management
You’ll get the chance to trial and error as an entrepreneur in your self-built network, of course not without the guidance and coaching of your manager (we like to call them mentors instead)
You will be part of a like-minded group who will be exploring and learning the skills needed to succeed together
PCN Academy will be your platform to launch your career as a 360 consultant, sales or a business development guru
PCN Academy will have two start dates, 1st of July and 1st of October
Of course there are no rules or guidelines that work every time, but so far we have experienced the following to work well:
- Goal oriented – You are a high achieving individual, whether that in sales drivers, entrepreneurial goals or a commercial mindset
- Sociable, eager and ambitious – You are ready to embark on a career in business with a passion to connect with people
- You do things differently – You pursue opportunities without regard to resources currently controlled. You are a team player and fit a scale-up culture which is entrepreneurial and challenging
- Qualities of a leader – you actively engaged in something that requires an extra level of commitment
- Emotionally intelligent
- Funny and kind – You are genuinely kind and like a joke or two. We work hard and spend a lot of time together – we want to have fun along the way!
- Native German/French/Dutch/English/Nordics language speaker – we find it's smoother to communicate to clients in your native language
