Twenty new jobs for Liverpool as Access Point opens new office
The company behind advertising and voucher offers on the reverse of major supermarket and DIY superstores’ till rolls is to open an office in Liverpool, creating 20 jobs.
Access Point, who also manage space available at a retailers site to businesses who wish to promote* their products and services to a retailers’ customers, will open its doors at Liverpool’s Cotton Exchange next month.
The move has come as a result of rapid growth in a contracting economy with the continued buoyancy of the ‘voucher economy’ contributing to expansion.
Liverpool was decided on after the Southport-based company were unable to attract sufficient recruits of the right calibre to expand its head office sales team. The company has organised a recruitment day in central Liverpool on March 24 to showcase their company and attract suitable candidates.
“We have struggled to fill vacancies as we’ve grown. Access Point is a national company which happens to be based in Southport. We can’t understand why more local people haven’t applied given the growth of the sector, the quality of our clients, and the potential for high earnings and none of the usual commuting stresses,” said MD David Robertshaw.
Thanks to a range of products perfect for a cash-strapped climate, innovation that is being adopted by many of the major retail chains and a portfolio of clever marketing concepts for businesses, Access Point Ltd will undergo yet another year of growth in 2012.
One of the company’s top young sales people started just three years ago and will this year earn around £40k, thanks to a good basic salary and uncapped commission.
Adam Hanford, who has also just celebrated a promotion to team leader at Access Point, said: “Every year my earnings have gone up. The recession has been good for this business. Now that these vouchers and concessions have much wider acceptance as part of the shopping routine, we are confident that business will continue grow when the economy is back on track. People are more aware of what they’re spending and keener to take advantage of clever shopping practices.”
Recruitment for outgoing telesales people for the Liverpool office follows hard on the heels of six new posts at Southport.
MD David Robertshaw added: “We work with some of the leading UK retailers such as Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Argos, Homebase, Wickes and IKEA. Our services include till roll reverse advertising and promotions for these big store chains and create access to their customers for businesses in the community. The clients buying into opportunities with those chains include KFC, Burger King, Subway, the NHS, Specsavers, Vision Express and more.
“We are now the market leader in these kinds of marketing promotions and our growth shows no sign of slowing.”
The recruitment day will focus on finding people with B2B cold calling telesales experience. Together with a basic £18k salary successful candidates can expect £30k OTE a generous benefits package.
The recruitment day will be held on Saturday 24th March in Liverpool and anyone interested should send a CV to email@example.com
