Employers tend to be larger companies that can dedicate time and resources towards developing their business. In smaller companies, business development is usually carried out as a smaller function within a broader mix of responsibilities. It’s common for bonuses to be paid and these can be very large, sometimes matching your annual salary. Jobs are often advertised with a basic salary and a higher on-target earnings figure. Other benefits may include a pension, healthcare scheme membership and company car.
