    Sorry if this is not in the correct area. I work for a large IT provider and current role is Business Development Manager. The company is undergoing a huge transition and today the director of my area asked me to take a role he could envisage as Sales Lead, looking after internal sales team. Would you class this as below or equal to sales manager? Other teams have sales managers. I have told my manager previously I would like to manage people/teams. Am I getting to hung up on the title?

    I think the job grades and pay bands might be a more objective indicator.

    You need to have clear objectives etc. as without those you have no idea is you can do the job.
