Welcome to Prime!

Launched in October last year, we had some great regional and sector coverage, and we’ve been going from strength to strength creating a real buzz around the business. I appeared on The Apprentice You’re Fired (show on BBC2, although this time I was a panelist!) to talk about Prime. It was particularly exciting to trend 10th in the UK on Twitter, as well as being the main topic of conversation in Recruiter magazine.

After the launch, it was time to test our unique take on recruitment, providing free training to all our candidates. Our first training day was a huge success and we managed to find the ‘chosen one’, Kyle, who has been a great addition to our team. One of the team’s major highlights was the UK Business Show in November. For a brand new recruitment firm to speak at this was amazing, and from a personal perspective, speaking at the same event as James Caan was humbling, and gave Prime and myself a real boost.

As well as Prime making a stamp in the business world, we have also been making our mark in education. We are working with a number of schools, universities and business expos, and its great to offer students and startups the opportunity to understand the potential they have in sales.

Whilst we’ve been raising knowledge for the future sales people in the North West, we have also been on the hunt for the best salespeople in the region. We launched our ‘Prime Pitch’ competition where, in a ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ style, we have been asking some of the best salespeople to prove they can sell an umbrella in 15 seconds. Make sure you check it out!

Our business ethos of changing the perception of sales has been the main driving force behind our successes so far. We have now doubled up on our training days with two per month and with a new addition to our team, Dale, the business is in Prime position for the rest of the year.

We’ll keep you posted!
