Sales Marketing

Pioneering Sales & Marketing Recruitment to help you stay ahead.

Sales & Marketing is critical to any company in any industry. Without it, businesses would not thrive to their fullest potential. We believe every organisation in the world needs highly qualified and highly skilled salespeople. And a creative strategic marketing team.


Mercury Hampton specialise in placing candidates who are aligned to your culture, values, and behavioural trends. Using analytical benchmarking technology, we can consistently deliver high performing sales leaders into your organisationWe will benchmark your top performing salespeople’s behaviour’s, skills and experience and match accordingly to that winning formula. We typically specialise in Manufacturing and Engineering, Infrastructure and Built Environment, Technology and Digital, and Executive Search and Selection.


We believe recruiting salespeople is an artform, albeit it with some science thrown in. 

You can measure a sales professional by their sales figures, take out references and consult past colleagues, but that does not guarantee they will be the right person for your business. 

Every person in a commercial role has their own personality traits, selling style, motivations, values, goals, and ethics. The question is, do they gel with yours – and with your customers’? 

This is where we can help. 


You would be working with recruitment consultants who have had a previous life in senior commercial roles. They have a deep understanding of the sales process and market intelligence from the industries they have worked in.

We speak your candidates’ language. We understand what they tell us and notice what they do not. We can discuss challenges and attractions with them peer-to-peer. 

Sales candidates are notoriously difficult to engage with and persuade. So, the fact we can build credibility and trust with them is a decisive factor. 

As is our ability to spot the subtle nuances of who might be the perfect fit.


We call it Mercury Hampton IQ. 

This is our online selection platform. It gives you a suite of psychometric tools that we use to complement our professional judgement. 

We can deploy McQuaig to profile your current sales high achievers and then use that benchmark to assess candidates. 

By the end of the process, you will not only have a compelling shortlist, but the confidence that 94% of people we place via IQ are still in post after two years.
