Patrick is a specialist in the recruitment of marketing, communication and sales professionals across the commerce and industry space, with a particular focus on the SaaS and technology sectors. This ranges from general marketing roles to digital, social media, business development, sales and internal and external communications. He prides himself on building strong and lasting relationships with his candidates and clients whilst always striving to offer the best and most honest service.
“A business mentor once advised me to keep standards high because one day someone will come along and surprise you. And during my recent hunt for a permanent sales leadership position that positive outlier was Patrick Sommerfelt.
Let me preface that I’ve worked with numerous B2B recruiters in the last fifteen plus years. Predominantly as a hiring manager, however, more recently as a candidate in a tough economic environment.
What stands out for me with Patrick is his ability to genuinely self-detach and be strategic. To take onboard and position what I was looking for in my next role. Whilst also demonstrating a comprehensive understanding of the target client (e.g. culture, people, goals, market).
His natural conversational style, clarity of communication and ability to build trust quickly (through committed actions) does not go unnoticed either. Nor does his focus, as partly evidenced by our initial exchange taking place on a Saturday.
Patrick strikes that delicate balance between candidate and client whilst staying focused on the bigger picture. Not easy for many. In summary, Patrick gets my vote as a B2B recruitment partner.”
Head of Sales and Marketing
”Patrick recently helped me secure an amazing new position and a huge promotion. He is a fantastic recruitment professional, for whom nothing is too much trouble. Easily the most communicative, open and honest recruiter I have ever dealt with. You can feel that he really cares about you as a candidate – it’s not just about getting the fees. One thing that really stood out to me was how well Patrick captured what the hiring manager was seeking, then translates those requirements and coaches you on how to present your skills in the best way possible, helping you to prepare well for each interview stage. I would definitely recommend anyone looking for a new role to speak with Patrick first!”
”Working with Patrick was an absolute pleasure from start to finish. He’s a diligent, consummate professional who goes above and beyond in all capacities.”
National Sales Manager
”I cannot thank Patrick enough for his help and expertise. Communication and integrity are the two most important things I value when working with recruiters and not only is he proficient at both he has really given me a whole new perspective on how it can be accomplished! Just a pleasure to work with. And I’m sure when it comes to recruiting within my new role he will be the only person on my phone book. Thanks again.”
