Q
How much can I earn as a Sales Assistant?
earnings
Sales assistants (for example in retail) can earn £14,000-18,000, with sales managers and senior staff earning over £40,000 and more depending on the company. Account Mangers – high level sales roles that involve project and client management as well as direct selling – can start on around £24,000, but can rise hugely with experience. Sales jobs also usually include performance-related bonuses, as well as commission on the items or services sold.
Q
What qualifications do I need to be a Sales Assistant?
qualifications
With a Bachelors Degree Although you don’t necessarily need a related degree, if you are looking for a graduate job in sales most employers will be looking for candidates with at least a 2.1 in any subject.

If you are selling a very specific product, for example pharmaceuticals, it may be useful to have a qualification in this area in order than you have all the technical knowledge required. Large companies may be able to offer a graduate scheme, which will be structured and last for around two years.

After gaining some experience in a sales environment you may look into professional qualifications offered by the Chartered Institute of Marketing or the Institute of Sales and Marketing Management.
Q
What skills do I need to be a Sales Assistant?
skills
The skills required of sales people are multi-faceted. Whilst being persuasive and often borderline pushy, it is important not to come across as aggressive out of fear of losing the deal. Drive and resilience are two of the most important skills that you must have in order to succeed in a sales environment, as well as the ability to deal with high pressure situations, tight deadlines and frequent knock-backs.

From a business perspective, you must be fully aware of the market that you are selling into, as well as having a strong commercial awareness.

Other important skills for those working in sales include:
  • Strong customer service
  • Tact
  • Enthusiasm
  • Teamwork
  • Exceptional communication
  • Confidence
  • Negotiation
Q
What experience do I need to get a job in Sales?
