121 Group is a global leader in international mining investment events. Founded by a team of investment event professionals in 2014, they organise ‘invitation-only’ investor introduction and deal sourcing events for corporate organisations within the oil & gas, mining and natural resources sectors globally.

Some of the roles we’ve secured
  • Business Development Manager
  • Account Manager

They have honed the investment event model and monopolised their market. They’ve continued on their growth path and expanded their team in Australia. Career development into Sales Management is available.

The culture is vibrant, empowering, team orientated and fun! They take pride in their work, delivering consistent high quality services… enjoying nothing more than celebrating the wins and rewarding results.

The Need
Passionate hunter
sales professional

To meet their desired growth plans, they required a National Business Development Manager to hit the ground running and eager to use their exceptional people skills to seek, nurture and manage new business opportunities.

The right person needed to demonstrate a proven success selling services in a similar B2B sales role. They’ll be highly motivated ‘independent’ sales professional with a hunter mentality with a passion for creating lucrative partnerships. They needed to prosper in a fast paced environment with excellent self-promotion, networking and presentation skills to successfully portray that of the 121 Group.

The Result

We've worked with about 12 recruiters in various locations around the world. I would put ReillyScott in the top two. All of the candidates we interviewed were great; they all had relevant experience and we could have hired any one of them.

121 Group is an international mixed media business, providing investor introduction and deal sourcing events, investor relations, and online and in print publications. We exclusively partnered with ReillyScott for a BDM role and felt we were in safe hands. We could sit back and know the job was being done. We didn’t have to chase up like we’d need to do normally with other recruiters – we knew exactly where we were every step of the way. ReillyScott was very efficient, understood our requirements and clearly knew the market well. The 5% Method clearly works well because we got a great result and we’re really happy.”
