Retail, sales and customer services
All businesses are involved with selling a product or service, which is where the Sales department of a business comes in. Retail is also a huge sector and covers everything from a sales assistant to a chocolate taster and a window designer to create appealing displays for the front face of a shop.
The industry has evolved to make extensive use of technology to help optimise the flow of products from the producers through the stores and finally to the consumers, as well as analysing buying trends. Both small indigenous companies and large multi-national chains operate across the country and make up over 10% of Ireland’s GDP.
