Seal the Deal 011

Art Ruddy from the Department for Education and Learning, Jim Finnegan of JMC Mobile and Peter McCaul, Managing Director of Dealtronic launch the ‘Seal the Deal’ recruitment drive

Newry company Dealtronic is offering up to 20 new recruits the chance to get their career back on track by competing for a sales job in an Apprentice-style interview process.

The deals business, created by Newry businessman Peter McCaul, is undertaking a unique recruitment drive offering the chance for up to 20 hard-working, passionate individuals to demonstrate their skills in a real sales environment.

Using an Apprentice style interview process Peter hopes to add new recruits to his team who show a flair for sales but have so far not got their big break.

Dealtronic, which launched in 2012, provides software which allows businesses to create exciting promotions in a unique way, with reporting facilities, profit calculator and marketing platforms such as their unique in-store Tablet PC, website and mobile App.

Dealtronic's software aims to enable SMEs all over Northern Ireland to increase customer loyalty and sales & profits whilst offering up to 100% discounts for customers.

Peter said the business has already proved hugely popular in Newry and Greater Belfast and he has plans for further growth.

He is interested to hear from people who are currently unemployed or looking for a new challenge, interested in sales and marketing and ready for an exciting opportunity.

Those who get a call back will have an opportunity to prove themselves with an Apprentice style sales pitch day taking place on February 20 in the Department for Employment and Learning headquarters in Belfast. The chosen applicants will pitch their credentials to Peter McCaul, Managing Director Dealtronic, Art Ruddy from DEL and Jim Finnegan, Managing Director of a communications specialist business.

Chosen finalists will have the opportunity to grow their sales skills in a real life sales environment as they set about selling the Dealtronic Brand.

Peter McCaul, Managing Director of Dealtronic said: "This is a unique way of hiring staff but this is a chance for those people who may have a lack of experience in their CV, struggled in interviews, or for one reason or another, find themselves unemployed at the minute. I want to see people with enough passion, drive and commitment that none of these negatives matters, then Dealtronic will do the rest."

Clare Mooney, Employer Contact Manager in the Department for Employment and Learning added: "The Department's Employment Service through the Employer Contact Manager network is assisting Dealtronic in the recruitment of staff. Based in various Jobs & Benefits offices and Job Centres throughout Northern Ireland, we are keen to engage with the business community to raise awareness of the Department's Employment Service which can provide recruitment solutions and identify relevant Departmental programmes to employers including Steps to Work and the Youth Employment Scheme (YES)."

Anyone who wants to apply for the process please should send a cover note and CV to by February 15.
