Maritime Sales Employment Report

Read the Maritime Sales Employment Report

The maritime sales landscape continues to transform, as the market changes and becomes increasingly complex. The focus is shifting from product sales to selling solutions, including future technology, and addressing problems that have yet to be solved.

In response to these changes, maritime businesses are seeking to grow and reinvent their commercial teams, putting a new spotlight on who they hire, the skills they desire and what they offer. The role of the salesperson is becoming more sophisticated, as traditional sales approaches give way to a more integrated and consultative model that incorporates not only sales but technical consultation and marketing expertise as well. Hiring managers are becoming more open to engaging with candidates outside of their sector, looking to bring in fresh new ideas and perspectives.

This growth and transformation are placing extra pressure on salaries, benefits, and working patterns, as well as a need for businesses to define and live their vision, mission, and values.

There has been limited coverage of candidate trends for maritime sales professionals, as well as their drivers and career aspirations. We strive to create insights and share trends in a variety of disciplines, driven by our passion for maritime. As we have seen the importance of maritime sales soar over the last five years, we felt it was time to share insights in this area.

The findings in this report aim to expose, highlight, and establish a new benchmark across several topics including retention, compensation and benefits, work-life, as well as working styles, location, and travel.
