Hull tech firm to launch new 'sales college' in hunt for top talent

By Hull Daily Mail | Posted: 5 Apr 2019

Hull tech firm IT@Spectrum is to launch a new development programme as it looks to train the next generation of sales stars.

The business, based at the Bridgehead Business Park in Hessle, is on the hunt for new talent after a period of growth, boosted by a string of key acquisitions.

It now hopes its upcoming Spectrum Campus – dubbed a “college for sales” – will provide budding sales professionals with a platform to enter the industry.

Ken Sturdy, director at IT@Spectrum, said: “A combination of organic growth, broadening the scope of our offering, and multiple key acquisitions means that we now need to significantly increase our business development capability to maximise this investment and engage with a wider audience across the region.

“To do this we need to fast-track quality people into high performing business to business professional sales roles, to work alongside our current experienced team.

“Many of our best performing executives have started their careers with us, and we see the in-house development of driven, hardworking, enthusiastic learners as our best route to success.”

IT@Spectrum last year celebrated 35 years of business.

The company helps other organisations make significant savings in both time and money through a series of automated business management programmes and print processes.

A total of six places are up for grabs in the first programme, which aims to provide all of its trainees with the skills they need to succeed in the competitive world of sales.

Aside from arming trainees with the skills they need to succeed in business, IT@Spectrum is offering a remuneration package that not only provides a stable financial grounding on which to build a career, but also introduces the cohort to some of the incentive-based rewards that many sales professionals enjoy.

Having opened The View, IT@Spectrum’s prestigious new premises at Bridgehead Business Park in 2017, the business has embarked on an ambitious expansion plan.

With only six positions on offer, places on the programme are expected to be highly sought-after, and the recruitment process will be both competitive and challenging.

To apply for a place at Spectrum Campus, applicants will need to visit and complete the online application.
