Swedish term or phrase: Intagare
Somebody who is tasked with finding people that want to sell:

Som intagare har du många olika arbetsuppgifter. Framförallt ska du i din tjänst hitta samt bearbeta säljkunder genom att till exempel knacka dörr, ringa på bostadsannonser, skyltar, Idealista och Fotocasa – jaga bostäder med andra ord. I detta arbete är det också viktigt att du tar in rätt typ av objekt som också är rätt prissatt.

Any idea what the word for this is in English?

From your explanation, this job seems to be about finding prospects that can be converted into sales people, so I suggest the simple term "finder". An alternative could be "discoverer", but it's more difficult to pronounce!

"As a lead generator, it's your job to set up appointments and find potential clients for the sales team."

I understand it's a different area as this job wants to find people to sell rather than purchase, but it's still about making sales and ultimately money.
