The division, which is the specialist REC sector group for sales recruitment firms, has published a new report exploring the changing nature of modern sales professionals.
As many companies are now in search of an increasingly skilled and professional workforce, the REC claims that sales recruitment candidates need to up their game and ensure they have the necessary skills to succeed.
Antony Wroe, chair of REC Sales & Retail, commented: "With the global marketplace becoming ever more competitive and with customers becoming increasingly savvy over their buying decisions, today's sales personnel must have considerable skills and expertise to fulfil the job title of sales professional."
It comes after a recent study carried out by Manpower showed that sales professionals are the second most in-demand workers on the planet, with their roles also being the second hardest to fill.
This study was described as "no surprise" by Rob Scott, managing director of Aaron Wallis Sales Recruitment, who explained that, unlike the hiring of other staff, recruiting the right sales professionals requires a combination of the right spirit and attitude, along with the necessary skills, personality, working methods and experience.
Aaron Wallis are a Milton Keynes Sales Recruitment agency with a unique service offering that includes 12 months rebate. Psychometric profiling and online skills testing are also included within a fixed recruitment price.
