Sales Employment Market

The act of making a sale is a key marker of success for many businesses, and an essential conduit in making this happen, for both wholesale and retail—is the sales person. There has been an ongoing demand for experienced sales people through the impacts of unprecedented weather events, global economic conditions and reticent consumer spending.

At Madison, we can have an established talent pool of experienced sales professionals if you’re looking for your next team member. If you’re looking for a job, we work with organisations across New Zealand and can help you find the right fit for your next career move.
