Celotex - 7 placements in under 8 weeks

Kingsley Consulting specialises in recruitment within the UK building products sector, supporting manufacturers, merchants, and distributors. This case study demonstrates how we quickly formed a complete sales team for Celotex following their acquisition by SOPREMA.


After SOPREMA acquired Celotex, there was an urgent need to assemble a new sales team within three months. The key roles to fill included:

  • 3x Area Sales Managers

  • 1x Head of Sales 

  • 1x National Account Manager

  • 1x Sales Development Manager

  • 1x Specification Manager


We adopted a focused recruitment strategy, utilising:

  • Online job platforms such as LinkedIn, CV Library, Reed, and Indeed

  • Screening and video interviewing over 80 candidates

  • Selecting the best candidates and presenting them to Celotex for final evaluation


Result: Our approach was effective, filling seven positions within the tight eight-week deadline. This achievement:

  • Prevented financial and operational delays associated with unfilled positions

  • Ensured all new hires were well-suited to their roles and integrated smoothly


This case study highlights Kingsley Consulting's ability to meet urgent and specialised recruitment needs with precision and speed. We are committed to further enhancing our recruitment processes by incorporating more advanced technologies, maintaining our leadership in the recruitment industry.
