Marketing, Sales and Business Development


Marketing is an essential element in today’s business marketplace, with global companies of all sizes looking to marketing professionals for assistance in selling a product or positively promoting an organisation within its target market.

The last decade has seen an increase in technical marketing roles in areas such as customer relationship management, with employers particularly focused on marketing professionals with experience in investigating the purchasing decisions of customers and creating ideas to sell a product or service.

Closely linked, professionals in the sales sector essentially put marketing strategies into practice. Sales professionals with experience in their chosen field and a proven track record in sales, awards and achievements are likely to be most successful when seeking meaningful employment.
