MRG has real heritage in the recruitment of middle to senior sales and marketing professionals across many industry categories; it was the origin of the business in Sydney, it is a strength in Melbourne, and has remained the largest MRG specialisation as we have grown.
The vast majority of our clients within the consumer goods, industrial and commercial sectors generally expect, and often demand sales and marketing candidates with specific industry, category or channel knowledge and expertise; and hence, in the MRG Sales and Marketing Practice, to a large extent we are “candidate driven”.
That is not to say we merely circulate or recycle candidates. On the contrary, we deliberately identify and nurture talent, in advance of need, on behalf of our clients.
For instance, within the grocery and industrial sectors, there are a finite number of sales and marketing executives working for a finite number of tier one and tier two multi-national and local manufacturers. Because of our policy of working in depth with a restricted number of those organizations as clients, we have access to a greater number of potential candidates in non-client organizations than many of our more broadly spread competitors; and our Talent Management Team is devoted to sourcing and nurturing appropriate people within those organizations.
In the highly competitive world of Sales and Marketing, MRG has built a reputation for having ready access to pre-qualified pre-nurtured candidates.
