Sales Managers (fine wines) – We are seeing increased demand for Sales Managers in the fine wines industry in response to growing demand in restaurant and direct sales channels. Employers are looking for experienced salespeople with fine wine experience and knowledge.
Sales Executives (fine foods) – Product demand in the fine food sector is encouraging both multinational corporations and local companies to recruit entry level candidates with existing transferable sales skills.
Sales Managers (food - distributors and wholesalers) – Candidates with food product knowledge are sought by distributors and wholesalers. Distribution knowledge and experience working in principles and wholesalers is sought. Local growth in the premium market and mass product demand for imported products drive this trend.
Account Managers (IT) – As always major IT and telco companies seek Account Managers with experience in the local market.
Business Development Managers (IT&T) – Again telco and IT organisations require account acquisition and development skills. Candidates with market knowledge and existing contacts in Hong Kong are in particular demand.
All sales roles are permanent positions. Most companies struggle to find entry-level candidates who they feel can meet the demands of the workplace.
