The business & service sector contains businesses whose main activity is the provision of a service, rather than the provision of a physical product. This service can be provided to another business or to a member of the public. Companies in the business & service sector don’t make a tangible product, instead their employee’s complete tasks to deliver a service to their customers. It is usually the largest sector in any advanced economy and often the greatest driver of economic activity. Examples of business & service sector jobs include accountant, solicitor, customer service advisor, commercial cleaner and hairdresser.
