We are extremely proud to report that Virtual Sales Team were awarded a commendation in the Best Small Employer category at the Working Families Top Employers Awards. The awards were held at Vintners’ Hall in London on Thursday 7th July 2017.

We competed against international brands including Lloyds Banking Group, JP Morgan and Grant Thornton. In the sister category, the Best Large Private Sector Employer category, fellow competitor SKY were also awarded a commendation.

Managing Director, Andrew Smart, said:

“It’s a great achievement to be recognised as one of the UK’s best employers for families. We’re a family friendly business to the core. The foundation of Virtual Sales Team was built upon and continues to operate on a flexible working model with a strong focus on work-life balance.

Our recruitment strategy is mostly based on a part-time model which not only gives our employees flexibility around their family activities and keeps them with us longer but gives us more mature and experienced callers. This benefits our clients’ by having a flexible, scalable and reliable sales and marketing solution that delivers the highest quality leads available through outsourcing.”
