The programme is expected to create multiple new full-time sales roles for fresh or recent graduates in 2012, with further intake to the programme in 2013.
As a core element of the graduate programme, Check Point is offering successful candidates 18 weeks of intensive sales training based in New York, US, with travel and accommodation expenses paid for.
After completing the training, graduates will join Check Point’s sales teams in the company’s UK offices as full-time internal sales representatives, where they will join the company’s sales teams to help drive further growth.
Terry Greer-King, UK managing director for Check Point said: “Despite the current economic climate, the IT security sector continues to be buoyant. Check Point has enjoyed record growth in recent years because it has been able to attract and invest in talented individuals.
“Our graduate programme underlines and further increases that investment, and will give people of the right calibre all the sales skills they need to succeed in this vibrant IT sector. We’re looking forward to recruiting our future sales leaders.”
Responsibilities of the full-time sales roles include outbound calling campaigns to prospective customers; and managing and assisting with quoting for solution, subscription and support renewals.
