Association of Professional Sales
Association of Professional Sales
The Association of Professional Sales (APS)is the government backed professional body for salespeople in the UK, providing a full qualification based professional career path in sales for the first time. By lobbying parliament to recognise sales as a profession and building a complete career OFQUAL regulated qualification career pathway along with a set of industry sales competencies, companies can now engage very differently with their sales function. This means the way sales people are recruited, educated, retained and empowered to behave is changing. High levels of churn - costing UK business millions – is reduced and sales performance is improving. Sales people are engaging with their profession in a better way as they see a clear career path and have to demonstrate standards of skills, Knowledge and behaviour in their role daily.
