Sales Development Representatives
More and more companies are realising the need for talented Sales Development Representatives (SDRs). The sales development representative role encompasses lead generation and inside sales. These positions are integral to sourcing new customer prospects and driving a company's sales funnel. Tech companies are open to new university graduates as well as employees with one to two years of experience. Finding a Sales Development Representative takes an average of 2 weeks to 6 weeks. Typically, Betts Recruiting has seen this position hired 40% faster than their more senior counter parts, Account Executives.

Years of Experience  Base Salary  OTE
Graduate Sales Role/Entry Level  £25,000 - £28,000  £30,000 - £40,000
6 months - 1 year  £28,000 - £35,000  £40,000 - £50,000
1 year - 3 years  £35,000 - £45,000  £50,000 - £60,000

Account Executives
Account Executives manage the entire sales process, from cultivating initial relationships with a prospective client to handling contract negotiation. Account Executives generate the client base of an organisation. This position is typically comprised of individuals who have shown success in one or more sales roles in the past and have the personality, skills, and drive to hit quota on a regular basis. While Betts Recruiting has seen Account Executives hired in as little as 2 weeks, it can take up to 10 weeks depending on the individual company's hiring process.

Years of Experience  Base Salary  OTE
1 year - 3 years  £35,000 - £45,000  £50,000 - £60,000
3 years - 5 years  £45,000 - £60,000  £90,000 - £120,000

Customer Success Managers
A growing client base requires Customer Success Managers (CSMs). Customer Success Managers maintain a company's quality of service after the sale has been completed. This is a newer role that companies have started hiring for over the last two to three years. CSMs improve the relationship between a customer and a company by ensuring a company's product or service is implemented smoothly and efficiently, helping to improve customer experience with the product, and helping companies to increase the overall customer lifetime value. It takes approximately 4-10 weeks to hire a Customer Success Manager.

Years of Experience   Base Salary   OTE
1 year - 3 years   £30,000 - £50,000   £33,000 - £75,000
3 years - 5 years   £50,000 - £80,000   £55,000 - £96,000
5 years - 7 years   £80,000 - £95,000   £88,000 - £114,000

Sales Leadership
Hiring a Sales Leader is crucial to the success of an organisation. A great Sales Leader will build a scalable sales process and accelerate growth, having a long-term effect on revenue. A poor Sales Leader, or no Sales Leader at all, can cause a company to stagnate and eventually wither away. Sales Leaders help generate revenue generating quotas and pipeline goals. The average time to hire for a Sales Leader is between 10 weeks to 20 weeks depending on the company and industry.

Years of Experience   Base Salary   OTE
7 years+   £125,000 - £150,000   £150,000 - £300,000
