SENIOR SALES SPECIALIST - CYBER SECURITY, IT SECURITY
Dying market, is Cyber Security (worth $75 billion in 2015, set to be worth $170bn in 2020 - Forbes).
But that's what happens when your offering is a mere luxury, with no real pain point to address (the average cost of an attack was £2.6m last year, up by 53% on the year before - PwC).
And working for this company is a huge risk (multi £bn turnover powerhouse),
With little strategy (specialist sales role selling into a base of accounts, alongside the account managers. That's right; put the Yellow Pages down).
They're in the middle of nowhere (they've several office across the UK providing full technical and sales support)
And so earning a living here would be tough (six figures is a reality for many in this role),
This would do nothing for your career (big name, lots of support and scope for progression; the platform to come in and use your skills in a fully supported role to carve out a lucrative career).
It isn't worth applying (unless you want to join a giant with enviable capabilities offering the kind of specialist sales role that dreams are made of).
