The difference between a flourishing sales team and a mediocre one often boils down to recruitment.

Here at Coburg Banks, we're not just about filling roles; we're about providing quality, which is why we lean heavily on metrics and analytics in our sales recruitment approach.

Read on to find out why you should too.

Why Recruitment Matters in Sales

Sales teams are more than just revenue-generators; they're the face of your brand. But let's face it, bad hires are costly.

The wrong salesperson can ruin deals and damage relationships.

That's why a data-driven recruitment strategy is more than a luxury; it's a necessity.

Evolving from Intuition to Analytics

While trusting your gut may feel right, it's hardly a quantifiable approach to recruitment.

The modern landscape requires an analytics-backed methodology.

Employing hard data alongside human intuition offers a balanced strategy that makes your recruitment process both efficient and effective.

Essential Metrics for Sales Recruitment


Time-to-Hire isn't just a metric; it's a race against the clock.

Dragging your feet could mean losing a top-notch candidate to a competitor.

To ensure a swift yet thorough process, focus on crafting compelling sales job adverts and avoid potential problems with your sales interview process.

Quality of Hire

The performance and long-term retention of new hires are pivotal for business success.

oburg Banks uses a bespoke method that involves creating an ideal candidate profile for sales positions to ensure that each new hire brings value to your team.


Monitoring costs like advertising, background checks, and administrative tasks are crucial.

Overlooking these can lead to a higher-than-anticipated recruitment bill.

Here at Coburg Banks, we've honed effective ways to streamline the sales recruitment process, ensuring you get the best value for your money.

Offer Acceptance Rate

The number of candidates who accept your job offer provides vital information about your recruitment process.

Source of Hire

Is your talent coming from LinkedIn, job boards, or internal referrals?

Knowing this helps you allocate resources wisely.

Coburg Banks excels at leveraging employee referrals for successful sales hiring, making sure you're fishing where the fish are.
