What client say

The company needed to find talent abroad as the Sales Account Executives are based in their respective target market. Compensation and contractual expectations had to be adjusted for each market, and differences in working culture and communication styles needed be taken into consideration to attract the best international talents and secure a positive candidate experience.

To be successful in their role, Sales Account Executives candidates need to have a solid sales track record, an interest in Social Media and a good knowledge of the Fashion and Lifestyle sectors. They also need to be willing to work remotely, which requires autonomy, a great sense of responsibility, and the availability to travel frequently to the Headquarters.

The company’s hiring priorities shifted over the course of the recruiting processes, which required great flexibility, agility and effective communication between the hiring company, the H Factor and the candidates so as to optimize success and maintain a positive candidate experience.

The H Factor provided candidates with the required sales experience, language skills and sector knowledge, but also a great fit with the company culture and values (a strong team spirit, a “work hard, play hard” attitude, a positive energy and “can-do” attitude, and a shared interest in Social Influence, fashion, lifestyle and technology).

Cultural fit had been one of the company’s main challenges in previous recruiting processes. For the Sales Account Executives positions abroad, we identified candidates that on top of the required hard skills had demonstrated their ability to work independently, and the versatility required to work with different sectors.

The company hired the Spanish Sales Account Executive withina month of collaborating with the H Factor, and hired 3 additional candidates within the next 4 months: aSpanish Sales Account Executive, a Sales Account Executive for the UK market, an international Business Developer and a French Junior Business Developer.
