Acumen: Part Time Sales Person

Support towards employing a part-time sales person

As an alternative to hiring a full-time person in the target cross-border market, our Acumen programme can also offer you support towards employing a part-time sales person.

This person will be a qualified contractual representative – an experienced sales agent, market-centred consultant or recently retired sales or industry professional who will represent a company on a shared risk basis.

If it is required – 50% of recruitment/selection/advertising costs for the Appointee will be granted as part of the total allowable costs.

The maximum cost covered can be €20,000/£16,000 with Acumen paying 50% and you paying the balance.

Typical outcomes

Companies who have availed of the Part-Time Sales Support  typically report:

  • Qualified affordable presence in the target market;
  • Increased penetration of the cross-border market;
  • Substantial increase in sales yield;
  • Increased brand presence and profile to allow longer-term development
