Sales Managers Scotland

Sales Managers do very little actual selling; he or she develops and implements the training programs and incentives that motivate salespeople or reps. Also, Sales Managers outline department goals and may be responsible for designating specific territories for reps.

In smaller companies, Sales Managers create promotional incentives (such as free merchandise with a certain purchase) geared toward the consumer. In some situations, they may work with the research and development department, checking sales results against certain demographics. In larger companies, Sales Managers may work closely with the marketing team to build name recognition or to promote special offers.

In both large and small companies, future sales are projected based on information collected from his or her department and may assist with product research and development based on these findings.

  • Manage and motivate staff, recruit staff, train and develop staff, according to company policies and employment laws, and ensure relevant HR procedures are followed (appraisals, discipline, grievance, etc).
