Company Director, Michelle El-Din founded KME Recruitment in 2016 after identifying a gap in the recruitment industry within the sales area, and following personal experience within the recruitment sector, she felt the need for a more honest and customer-focused recruitment approach. Michelle prides herself on delivering an exceptional service to both candidates and clients; one where all parties are kept fully informed at all stages.
With a vast amount of experience within both sales and recruitment, Michelle and her team know what makes a great salesperson, recognising talent and the importance it plays within any company.
The consultants at KME are not mainstream recruiters. They do not bombard clients with CVs. They do not put candidates in front of clients for the sake of filling interview slots. They do not mislead candidates. They do not charge ridiculous fees. They are good, honest people who believe that finding quality salespeople for clients’ businesses is about integrity, accountability and hard work.
The company provides services for every business’ sales recruitment needs – even if the client has an inhouse recruitment team. KME doesn’t need to be on the client’s PSL and they don’t want exclusivity – they want to demonstrate to the client that they are the best and don’t charge any upfront fees to do so.
KME provide a professional, open, honest and friendly recruitment service to both candidates and clients, delivering on promises and always going the extra mile to assist in every way they can. They provide great customer service and pride themselves on the respectful relationship they have with everyone they come into contact with.
KME is continuously evolving and developing its recruitment practice and services. They want to provide the best possible service to their candidates and clients. Therefore, they invite all their candidates and clients to undertake a short service survey to ensure that they constantly strive to be better and become the best sales recruiter in the industry.
Understanding the sales market and maintaining up to date expert knowledge, KME has over 23 years’ combined experience within the sales and recruitment markets. They can advise clients and candidates on role salaries and also provide clients with independent and honest advice on job offerings and whether they will attract the right calibre of candidate.
The consultants will spend as much time as necessary to understand the needs of each individual client they work with and each candidate they support. They do this by asking the right questions and listening to the needs of both parties before commencing the search process. This enables them to market the roles professionally and source and place the best sales candidates. All candidates are fully briefed on roles and the client before pursuing their interest. This aids the retention of new recruits as there are no unpleasant surprises.
As a niche recruiter, KME instantly recognises talent within the sales arena and attracts some of the best sales candidates on the market, as individuals trust KME to represent them in the best, most truthful light. KME knows what makes a good candidate and client. All candidates are screened extensively, not just on experience and qualifications, but other criteria such as preferred management style, company culture, personality, etc. This ensures a good “fit” the first time around and thus increases retention rates.
Ultimately, KME can provide clients and candidates with an outstanding experience, whether they are a company struggling to find high-calibre candidates for their sales vacancy, or are an individual endlessly searching for their dream job. KME takes the pain out of job searches and spending hours sifting through CVs.
