CPI spent the first 25 years of its existence providing Sales professionals to various sectors including advertising agencies, OEM manufacturers and the Telecommunications sector. The telecoms industry expanded exponentially during this time with Carriers, Mobile operators and Vendors growing aggressively, CPI developed a reputation in this time of supplying quality Sales professionals from Entry to Director Level.
In 2012 CPI changed its focus from the Telecoms sector that was shrinking through acquisition to software based Vendors, we recognised the high growth opportunities within this field and began building partnerships with Market shaping Vendors and Consultancies. We focussed on Internal Sales opportunities, including Lead Generation, Inside Sales along with Sales Management and Director positions. At this time many Software businesses were setting up EMEA wide inside Sales Hubs so this quickly developed into Multi-Lingual opportunities.Triple Digit growth
Recognising the growth opportunities in front of us we started to scale up our teams to cope with the growing demand from the roles we were bringing in. In 2013 we set up a Temporary Division focusing on sales consultancies, market research companies and back office recruitment. Our Temp team has grown considerably to cope with demand and are a major part of our business, they have a clear focus on entry level sales roles and bringing new talent to market.Double Digit growth

Having outgrown our previous offices, we moved our team down the road to a large office that was big enough to accommodate our growth plans. 2015 was also a big recruitment drive within the business adding to our team across Temp, Perm and Ops.Double Digit growth
