What was the brief?
Adobe were looking to expand their European team by adding an overlay sales specialist within Italy, local to Milan. They were looking for a candidate with knowledge of Marketing Automation Software who had at least three years of experience within a commercial sales role. The role would involve working alongside Adobe’s Internal Account Management team, so a strong communicator, who was well presented and professional were all key aspects of the brief provided.
What was our process?
JPS Selection drew up a shortlist of 20 individuals from 14 donor companies, which were then contacted and interviewed by our consultants to determine their suitability for the role. Of the 20 shortlisted, seven were put forward to Adobe. Out of the seven profiles reviewed, five were selected to attend interview.
What was the outcome?
After a period of eight weeks, the five profiles were reduced to one individual who was successfully placed within Adobe.
