Being innovative doesn’t just mean the ability to make changes to something already established by introducing new methods, ideas, or products. The characteristic of great innovators and great companies is they see a space that others do not and they don’t just listen to what people tell them. For some, they need to learn to find this trait, for others, innovation comes naturally and in turn, they are able to teach others to find it. Naturally innovative people do things slightly differently to those who are not, and being a recruitment agency we know this first-hand.  If you consider yourself as an innovator then take a look at our top 5 jobs that require this sought-after quality to become a true success.



  1. Business Development Manager
Business Development is a strategic and pivotal role in the growth of a business. It is all-encompassing in its meaning of the word “development”. This means that while being tactful and diplomatic at all times, a highly innovative person will thrive in this role, achieving set goals and knowing when to compromise but also when to take a stand. In order to persuade prospects to do what needs to be done, an innovative person will succeed by seeing through new ideas, winning trust and building relationships.

If you have an innovative personality, a Business Change Accountant role will see you thrive with your competitive advantage. You will capture trends, take advantage of emerging technologies and push boundaries to achieve growth for the business. Often resulting from a new system implementation and changes in structure you will be assisting in defining new implications to establish, implement and support the new processes.

  1. Development Team Lead
Innovators are authentic leaders, they build and retain vibrant networks of people, assets, and organisations. Instead of viewing collaboration as a challenge, they see it as an opportunity to identify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. The Development Team Leader role is a Developer first, but with a responsibility to act as a mentor to other team members – help them solve technical problems in new ways to drive their learning path. If you possess a strong roadmap of innovation to deliver, expect team members to excel across the stack and bring new ideas to improve competitiveness then you will excel in this type of role.

  1. Sales Executive
It may come across as arrogance, but successful Sales Executives and great innovators are highly confident and perform better in stressful situations. When others see risk, innovative individuals see opportunity; when others see roadblocks and potential failure, they see success. Ambition, determination, and self-motivation is needed to be a successful Sales Executive. The job requires you to be able to talk to people and build a genuine rapport with them to identify exactly what it is that they want and come up with a solution that they may not even know that they needed. To be a great Sales Executive you will be in pursuit of excellence and growth and know that through helping other people to get what they want will, in turn, lead you down a rewarding and fulfilling career path. The return is in direct proportion to your service provided to others, and of course, there are always fantastic benefits such as incentive trips abroad and a company car!

They are also strategic planners and take decisions which are apt and which consider all the facts. They are not afraid to make the hard decisions for the benefit of the company. If you are methodical in your approach, highly organised and capable of working under your own initiative then a Human Resources administrator role would be well suited to you.
