Have you ever considered a career in strategic management?

These days strategic management specialists are very much in demand. With many companies trying to get as much as they possibly can out of limited resources (compared to the resources they had a few years ago anyway), bringing in experts who know exactly how to develop their business and increase their earning potential has become highly desirable.

In order to be considered for a position as a strategic management specialist, you're going to need to have at least an honours degree in a subject such as business, business development, strategic management, business management or another similar course with a focus on management and analytical skills.

It is usually the role of strategic management specialists to analyse the current marketplace and suggest ways in which the company in question can adapt in order to become more profitable. This is certainly easier said than done which is why co many companies are now searching out experts in the field.

Day to day tasks usually include meeting with senior management to discuss development opportunities, conducting market research and analysing the findings, coming up with ways to expand the reach of the company without putting strain on resources, analysing competitors' products and services and developing new training techniques and methods.

This position is usually best suited to those who have had at least three years worth of experience in another managerial post, and many companies prefer to go with older applicants than graduates.

You can expect to earn around £35,000 per year at the lowest pay grade, with this increasing to as much as £67,500 per year for those who excel in their role and make it to the top pay grade.

Since there are so many different vacancies available for those who have both the experience and the qualifications to be a strategic management specialist, it is surprisingly easy to find vacancies on the major online job websites like totaljobs.com, cv-library.co.uk and fish4.co.uk.
