A Sales Manager is responsible for selling a company’s products to customers, working with their team of Sales Representatives. They usually cover a specific region.
Sales Managers may also be responsible for recruiting Sales Representatives, setting sales targets and monitoring achievements and client feedback. They also analyse sales data to uncover any trends and identify new information.
Sales Managers sometimes have to deal with major customers on a personal basis. They attend meetings, conferences and trade fairs on behalf of their client.
Sales Managers spend most of their time in an office environment but may travel frequently to meet clients and attend trade shows. Overnight stays and trips abroad may be necessary.
A driving licence is highly advantageous and may be essential for some jobs.
