From sales assistants to representatives and from negotiators to sales managers, not forgetting floor managers, cashiers, buyers and specialist salespeople, the trade sector covers a great number of professions – and all of these profiles are represented in Manpower’s candidate database. Several years ago, the wholesale and retail trade industry underwent a significant transformation in the wake of the e-commerce boom, a sector in which we also have the resources to recruit, select and assess candidates for fixed or temporary posts. Whether you are a retailer or a wholesaler, our HR consultants will recruit the best talent for you.
Wholesale and retail trade employees must be highly versatile and possess all manner of skills, ranging from interpersonal and listening skills to the ability to manage stress and to read customers’ behaviour in order to find the best way to respond to their needs and close the sale. As surprising as it may sound, sales professions were the third most sought-after in Switzerland in 2015. From direct sales to imports and exports, as well as B2B, B2C and e-commerce, we can find the sales expert who best meets your needs, specialises in your field and has the skills to boost your sales figures.
