The leading provider of special reports in National press, our client provides solutions to businesses, government and NGOs with the UK’s leading newspapers; The Daily Telegraph and City AM. Our client has been presented with many awards over the past couple of years including an award presented to them in 2016!
As a thriving, established and fast-growing media company, our client can offer an exciting and rewarding career for a talented, academically bright, ambitious, and commercially driven sales professional.
Whilst a background in media sales, print sales, events sales, advertising sales or sponsorship sales is beneficial for this role, it is not essential.
The Media Sales Executive role will involve:
- Researching a potential project together with a creative and business manager

The key to success in media sales is adopting a consultative approach to nurturing existing relationships and developing new business. We believe in structure to your sale and not blindly following a sales script.

- Commercially aware with an entrepreneurial mind-set - you need to think like a CEO.
- Creative and have the ability to offer solutions to CEO’s problems
- Disciplined, adaptable and a diligent learner
- Open minded
