Media sales executive
Fancy working in the fast-moving media sales business for an international publisher of industry-leading food magazines?
Market Intelligence is the world’s leading provider of information for the international fresh fruit and vegetable sector. This is a fascinating, non-stop business where you will have daily interaction with growers, importers, traders, manufacturers, supermarket buyers, and others connected to the vital business of fresh food supply.
This is an exciting time for the company, and we have recently revamped our websites and news services to bring the most up-to-date information to our many thousands of readers around the world. Our suite of products includes the full range of print and digital publications, as well as a series of high-profile conferences both in the UK and around the world.
We are looking for a highly motivated sales executive to join our team and sell advertising and sponsorships for our leading UK magazine Fresh Produce Journal, as well as our website and events.
The successful applicant will ideally have experience in a media sales environment or comparable position, the ability to work under pressure to meet key sales targets, and be a good team player. The position is ideal for a motivated individual with a passion for selling, both on the phone and in person.
Knowledge of the fresh produce or food industry is useful but not essential. In any case the successful candidate is expected to quickly build up a book of contacts, to be confident picking up the phone to speak to clients, and to show their face at conferences and events.
A second language is an advantage due to the international nature of the fresh produce business.
In return we can offer a competitive salary and commission structure, ample opportunity for UK and international travel, the chance to be a part of a friendly and lively team, and a convenient office location close to Vauxhall station in London. Benefits include pension, plus discounted gym membership at one of London’s premier sports centres. There is the opportunity for progression within the company for the right candidate.
Please send your CV and cover letter, stating your salary expectations and availability.
