A sales coordinator manages a sales team on behalf of their organization. They are usually responsible for hiring staff members and providing them with the team's vision and goals; they work with the team to ensure that sales quotas and additional team goals are consistently met. The sales coordinator may manage a budget for expenses such as travel, marketing and bonuses, as well as develop their team's sales quotas and participate in negotiations with clients.
A bachelor's degree in marketing, business or another relevant field is generally the minimum educational requirement for sales coordinator positions. Previous sales experience is needed as well; experience in a leadership role may be required or preferred.

Sales coordinators generally work in an office setting with members of their sales team. Some travel may occasionally be required, such as to participate in meetings with clients.
