Here are the 10 jobs most suited to Business degree graduates, based on how well they match the hard and soft skills taught on the course.
Some of the jobs are accessible to graduates starting their careers, while others are only attainable to those who’ve moved up the career ladder.
Certain jobs are significantly related to the degree. Others are made accessible by the transferable skills taught on the course.
It should be noted, countless other jobs are also suitable for Business graduates.
Your main responsibility is to analyse and review businesses’ accounts, including financial information such as their outgoings and income, profit and loss, and what their tax liabilities will be.
You will work as an Accountant in the accounting department of a company, an accounting firm or in a practice of your own.
You need a strong aptitude for figures and problem-solving, as well as business acumen.
Employers seek team-working and good communication skills and the ability to work methodically on your own and get on with clients.
As a Corporate Treasurer, you deal with large sums of money in a highly pressured environment where you handle investments and advise the business on its risks.
Employers will be looking for high levels of numeracy and analytical ability.
You’ll also need a cool head and a robust knowledge of how the money markets and treasury departments work.
The ability to communicate clearly and manage time proficiently is essential.
Business Development Manager
A Business Development Manager’s job is about improving businesses through a range of strategies such as expansion, mergers and partnerships, and saving costs.
You also keep an eye on happenings in the sector to spot opportunities that may arise.
Good business knowledge is a must, along with numeracy and analytical prowess and good negotiation, lobbying and networking skills.
You’ll also need tact and good communication when developing a business plan or partnering with others.
Human Resources Officer
You help people in organisations to perform at their best throughout their employment, from their arrival at a company to the day they leave or retire.
You have an excellent knowledge of organisational design and development, employment law and how to develop people, as well as verbal communication and interpersonal skills with everyone from Coaching Managers to union representatives.
As well as administrative abilities, it’s important for an HR Officer to work well with team members and approach people with understanding and sensitivity.
As a Marketing Executive, you work with the Marketing Manager to manage and control the relationship between your company’s products and consumers or another target audience.
Your skills set includes commercial awareness, the ability to think strategically when planning marketing, analytical capabilities and creativity when producing materials.

Bank Branch Manager
Being a Bank Manager involves running a bank branch or branches, promoting and marketing the bank’s products, dealing with customers, improving customer service and liaising with head office.
The role calls for numeracy, of course, but also skills in business management, financial planning and administration.
You will have a talent for leadership, people management, customer service and good communications.
As an Estate Agent, you need excellent communication skills to sell and negotiate property sales, alongside a strong customer service mentality.
You will advise people who want to sell their home, giving them information such as the value of their current house and what it might sell for in the local market.
So, you need to know your area to gauge what the properties they want to buy are worth.
The ability to negotiate and deal with the legal sale and purchase documents is an asset.
As a Tax Inspector, you’ll be analysing business tax returns and personal tax accounts, so you need a high level of numeracy and strong analytical skills.
Working in a tax office, you might specialise in inspecting sole traders’ (self-employed people’s) annual returns or in limited companies that pay corporation tax.
You’ll need an aptitude for problem-solving and detective work, whether you’re investigating suspected fraud or rooting out where a mistake occurred on a tax return.
Project Managers are found in all kinds of sectors from oil and gas to construction and must be good at scheduling, working out budgets and leading a team.
Your job is to plan, organise and run particular projects so that they’re completed on time and within budget and meet requirements.
You’ll need strong organisational skills and budgetary and revenue knowledge, alongside soft skills such as communication, the ability to work on your own and to make decisions.
Your responsibility as an Insurance Underwriter is to assess the risk to an insurance company of insuring someone or something, such as a house, business or car.
Analytical, numeracy and statistical skills are a plus but you’ll also need a head for detail and problem solving.
