Sales managers organise, coach and lead a team to work towards agreed sales targets. You would be responsible for a team of sales representatives selling a particular type of product or work with a certain type of customer, such as business to business sales. You may also be area manager for sales across a set area or sales patch. For some sales jobs, such as hi-tech scientific or engineering equipment, employers may prefer you to have a qualification such as an HND or degree. You could also be considered for specialist sales management jobs if your expertise comes from a background in designing or manufacturing of the products your team are selling.

You may wish to back up your experience and develop your management skills by studying towards a relevant Level 4 professional qualification.
