Business development managers are responsible for driving business growth by developing contacts, identifying market opportunities and increasing sales.
Salaries typically depend on location, employer and level of responsibility.
There are no formal academic qualifications necessary to get into business development management but the role does require a good standard of numeracy and literacy.
So anyone considering this as a career should aim for GCSE Maths and English grade C (or their equivalent, such as the Welsh Baccalaureate or Scottish Nationals) as a minimum.
In terms of further education, a degree or equivalent in subjects such as finance, marketing or business management would certainly be an asset.
