Commentary on Sales Roles and Remuneration in Singapore for 2018

In 2018 we predict the top three jobs in demand will be general manager, sales or business development manager and trade marketing manager roles. 

With the global economy still facing headwinds, the need to hire sales or business development talents stays competitive. For the same reason, many companies started to see the importance in having a dedicated headcount in driving the trade/ field marketing aspect. Trade marketing sits in between sales and marketing and plays a vital role in driving business ROI. The role is responsible for identifying gaps in the market and developing trade strategies to close those gaps without diluting the brand equity. With the business getting competitive, companies are committed to invest in account management talents to stay close to the ground. 

As the Singapore government stays committed to the Singaporean First Policy and the increased demand in the account and business development, we will foresee a shortage of local skilled job seekers. As a result, salaries are expected to increase.
