Paul Scott has been appointed as a director at The Academy of Sales. He will join fellow directors Samantha Lewis and Josh Campbell who share his passion for launching exciting careers in sales and recruitment.
Building on the success of The Academy of Sales’ highly regarded sales training programme, Scott’s new role will be leading the development of new courses aimed at trainee recruitment consultants. The Academy will be offering intensive four-week courses in recruitment and ‘the winning mentality’.
As well as specialist knowledge of recruitment, Scott brings a wealth of industry experience.
His move to The Academy of Sales follows thirty years of success in building high-growth, award winning recruitment businesses both in the UK and internationally.
Scott has been instrumental in the fast track growth of several businesses, including Fusion People which he grew from start-up to a turnover of over £120m, earning the company a place in the ‘Times top 100’ fastest growing companies in the UK.’
Scott’s outstanding track record in business development led him to mentoring numerous young companies keen on expanding their horizons.
Speaking about joining AoS, Scott said:
“After being involved for 20 years plus at the ‘sharp end’ of growing two major recruitment brands, I spent two years working as a Business Growth consultant, working with many recruitment businesses across the country. I was drawn to the progressive and energetic attitude at The Academy of Sales. It believes that employers need to invest in young people, but it’s clear that AoS also knows the standards of professionalism that clients expect. It works closely with forward thinking companies such as BT who are committed to coaching and mentoring.”
