The Sales industry has remained at a busy level with a lot of companies continuing to seek the best sales people as the market remains very competitive. Companies who are exporting are continuing to reap the rewards due to Brexit and the value of the pound.
We have seen an increase in more high level sales roles along with larger geographical areas to increase sales further afield such as USA and mainland Europe to accommodate this. The market continues to get more competitive and is gradually becoming more candidate focused as good candidates have numerous offers at once. Having worked as a Sales and Marketing Specialist for 5 years and worked in sales for 8 years prior to this, I know it remains vital for companies to attract the best sales people by keeping in line with market trends and salaries.
The Marketing industry is continuing to remain as vital as ever as it is still hand in hand with the sales function. More companies are now looking for candidates with a knowledge of digital marketing as the digital world continues to grow. Though, there are still traditional marketing roles as companies continue to see the value of trade shows and exhibitions etc. as people get to physically interact with potential clients. Of course most marketing roles will now involve both digital and traditional elements.
