It’s official for already quite a while now: England is leaving the European Union. Because of this, some of the English companies decided to base their company somewhere else. For example, in The Netherlands. But why?
The Netherlands after the Brexit
In the Netherlands, there is a qualitative infrastructure. Because of this, it’s a good place to establish your company. In the Netherlands you can work easily with other companies worldwide. There are also good digital providers in the Netherlands, which is good for the efficiency of your company. Above that, a lot of people in The Netherlands speak English. This is important, if you originally have an English based company. If you are thinking about going with your company to the Netherlands, you need a country sales manager. A country sales manager is responsible for your business in a certain country. It’s important that this sales manager represents your company correctly in this country. You have a certain tone of voice in your company. It’s important to keep this same tone of voice in other countries. Otherwise, your country doesn’t have the same feeling worldwide. And that certain feeling can make your company representative worldwide.
It’s hard to make a good name with your company, but it’s easy to create a bad name. You can only make a first impression once. If your country sales manager is not responsible enough, it can break your company worldwide. You have enough reasons now to find a good country sales manager in the Netherlands. But how do you do this?
Country sales manager in The Netherlands
If you need to find a country sales manager, it’s important to have a list of requirements that are important for your country sales manager. The first thing that is required, is responsibility. A country sales manager has a big responsibility. Therefore, you want to find a country sales manager that can handle this. You can see on someone’s cv if the person has experience with responsibility. Maybe the person was a sales manager before. But of course, it’s not sure that a sales manager can also handle the responsibility of a country sales manager.

If you don’t know if someone fits, we would like to help you. For example, with our sales assessments.
Practice situations from practice
If you really want to get to know the way someone works, it’s good to practice situations from practice with the candidates. For example, you can come up with a crisis situation in which the country sales manager needs to handle in an accurate way. Try to find a situation that the candidate doesn’t expect. With this, you can practice how fast the candidate can react to a certain situation. It’s also a possibility to give the candidate a deadline for this. For example, he needs to have a solution in half an hour. With this you can test if someone can handle the pressure from working as a country sales manager.
