Were open to sector knowledge within the broad remit of manufacturing, engineering and distribution but want the incoming consultant to have a little black book of contacts within their own niche (whatever that may be, were open to what you know best as long as it sits broadly within manufacturing, engineering and distribution) and be able to generate an average of at least five high quality vacancies per week from a high volume of outbound new business telesales activity and face-to-face visits.
