Close Brothers Asset Finance and Leasinglaunches 3rd Sales Academy 

Close Brothers Asset Finance and Leasing has announced the return of its highly successful and industry-leading Sales Academy, designed to attract new and diverse talent into the sector.

Now in its third iteration, the company is looking to recruit 10 new sales trainees across the UK who will specialise in one of a number of sectors, including Print, Construction and Transport. Full and intensive training is provided, comprising classroom-based learning, mentoring and practical ‘on-the-job’ training.

John Fawcett, CEO of Close Brothers Asset Finance’s Transport division: “We are very proud of our specialist business model and want to build on the outstanding success of the first two Sales Academies, which has seen many of the previous ‘graduates’ fully integrated into the Asset Finance and Leasing sales teams and leading very successful careers in their chosen sectors.

“We are keen to hear from driven, motivated and enthusiastic individuals with a passion to develop in sales. A background in sales is not essential – we are looking to attract candidates from a range of backgrounds who are enthusiastic about building a career in sales.

“This is an incredible opportunity to be trained by an industry leader and mentored by an experienced Sales Manager for ‘on the road’ training. Following their training period, successful applicants will concentrate on building a customer base, territory and business plan, with full assistance from a mentor.”
