You will most likely be based in an office, managing your own space and workload, but lawyers may be in court and marketers and sales people may be out and about at exhibitions or with customers. Some roles will involve travelling to meetings and conferences and, depending on the area you’re in, some of this work could take you overseas.
Roles are varied and include decision making, managing teams, meeting with clients and colleagues, storing and analysing data, creating detailed plans and running a variety of projects.
Teamwork, communication, organisation and problem solving skills are very important, as are good ICT skills. If you’re in a management role you will need to have good leadership and decision making skills too.
