Sales & Marketing

Sector Overview

As the Irish economy continues to grow, we have seen an increase in demand for highly skilled professionals within sales & marketing across a number of industries nationwide. With a growing emphasis on digital skills within the marketing sector and a continued need for highly skilled and experienced sales professionals to aid business growth, the next few years will offer many exciting opportunities.

Throughout Ireland in 2020, we saw a high demand for experienced and energetic marketing professionals, with a particular demand in the West of Ireland. These organisational requirements stemmed from expansion and growth and were from graduate level up to senior level, both on contract and permanent basis.

Sales requirements within organisations remains at a very healthy pace and is a consistent area of growth across all sectors. The benefits package that usually go hand in hand with sales roles are steadily increasing and becoming more attractive. Many candidates will only make a move if they are offered a significant increase, and because of this, we have seen a trend of a high number of counter-offers within sales environments.
