​Most in-demand jobs: Business Development and Account Managers

Salary range: €35,000 to €55,000

What qualifications and experience are employers seeking in business development and account managers?

Companies are now increasingly welcoming new talent in the roles of business development and account managers. Previously candidates needed three-plus years of industry experience. However, now we’re seeing that employers are more inclined to consider those with less than three years – providing there is an opportunity for extended tenure within that organisation.

What kind of benefits can business development and account manager candidates expect to receive?

Business development and account manager candidates can look forward to a range of benefits including commission opportunities, annual bonuses, medical insurance, and employer pension plans.

What flexible or hybrid working arrangements are being offered to business development and account manager candidates?

Many employers are offering business development and account manager candidates flexible and hybrid working arrangements. Most employers are offering a combination of on-site office days with remote workdays, typically ranging between two to three days in the office per week.


It’s expected that the demand for business development managers and account managers will only increase, as businesses seek to maintain and expand their operations in a rapidly changing business landscape. While traditionally companies have looked for candidates with a minimum of three years of experience, there has been a shift in trend towards hiring those with less experience to harness their potential to grow within organisations.
