Opportunities to further your Partnership career

There are quite a vast number of opportunities working in business development, facilitated in part by the increasing reach of the digital economy. Partnership roles in the technology sector, in particular, are driven by fin-tech companies across several regions in Asia.

Recent Changes for Partnership Jobs

As a people-oriented role, careers in business development and partnerships have remained relatively unchanged, thanks to the digital landscape. Those in these job roles are required to build relationships with clients, meaning their focus is about consistently driving value rather than sales. As such, partnership positions are solutions-focused.

Future Prospects

Partnership roles will increasingly revolve around incorporating and recommending automation, as this is a critical value-adding solution which more and more businesses will require going forward. This takes the form of a mixture of hardware and software, particularly when it comes to cloud technologies.

    Employers’ Requirements

    Those working in business development and partnerships require good people skills and a strong ability to communicate, due to the client-facing nature of the role. Candidates should also keep up to date with the relevant industry in which they are working and have an in-depth knowledge of a company’s main products and services. However, this may be less relevant for junior roles.

    CV Requirements

    Anyone applying for a role in business development and partnerships should have a demonstrable track record of sales and provide a comprehensive outline of the type of product solutions that they cover.

    Partnership Job Interview Preparation

    Candidates who have been called for an interview will need to demonstrate a number of essential soft skills during the conversation, which will stand them in good stead for the role itself. These include charisma and positive energy, as well as people skills. You may also be required to present case studies, or a practice sales pitch, in order to demonstrate your analytical skills.

Top Tip

"Genuinely invest in the relationship that you are building and what value you can add to them. Provide the collaborative solutions in which both parties can benefit from rather than “Why you need to partner with us” hard sales methodology."
