Here at Careers in Design our specialism in design recruitment has allowed us to work with a large selection of clients handling a variety of roles both here and around the world, eager to be paired with suitable applicants from those who have registered with us.

Whilst the majority of vacancies posted here at Careers in Design are weighted towards the creative aspects of the design industry, we have a whole section of posts available for sales, admin and support positions in the same sector.

The nature of any given sales job will depend very much on the parent company and how it operates. With some, their products are designed with a mass market appeal, and the role of the sales team is to encourage wholesalers and retailers to purchase in bulk orders and often liaising with the supply chain on pricing policies.

With other companies, what you will be selling is the ability of their creative team. You will be there in the field, promoting the company as their ambassador, convincing other businesses that they should take your company on as designers for a given project. These meetings can be crucial for the success of your business because, while the minutiae of the deal will be thrashed out by a project or commercial manager the principles of the agreement are established by you and your team as a way of getting your collective feet in the door.

Successful applicants will be expected to be engaging and determined, ideally with a track record of success in the area of sales. They will need to demonstrate a knowledge of the design sector and to be able to pitch them convincingly to a third party. Despite not being part of the design team, knowledge of the design process will be an advantage.

Using our filter menus above, you can locate the sales and admin positions we currently have available, before registering with us, and letting us customise your application to make it the best it can be. We also have companies who although not actively looking, have asked us to keep an eye out for suitable candidates on their behalf so if you do not see the right one on the list please still get in touch.
