Why become a Business Development Representative?

Entry Level

A BDR is an entry role in tech sales. You don't need much experience to start but you do need to be hard-working and resilient.

Well Paid

The starting salary will be around £30,000. You also earn commission on the potential clients (leads) you find. Most tech companies will also offer you equity in the company.

Career Progression

Tech Sales offers fast career progression. You can expect to be a BDR for around 9-18 months before you get promoted to a full-cycle sales role or move to a different area in tech.


You will engage with potential clients through cold-calling, emailing and social media outreach. You can be really creative with how you approach this, but being proactive is key.
