Our client is a long established, dynamic and innovative B2B media company whose reach extends to every corner of the global textile industry.

With a heritage spanning more than 100 years, they are respected world leaders in their field – and these are exciting times, as the success of their expanding portfolio of online news and intelligence channels, print publications and B2B events is matched by the continuing growth of their headquarters team.

We are looking for an energetic sales executive to help further expand the international business client base. While mainly office based, this is no average telesales role and includes worldwide travel to textile industry events in Europe, Asia and the USA. Much of your focus will be on selling multi-licence corporate subscriptions to our client's online platform across a mix of renewals (existing customers) and new business.

This permanent, full time role is based in modern offices in central Leeds. It offers great working conditions in a friendly environment as well as a fabulous commission package with uncapped earning potential and a basic salary of between £17k and £25k dependent upon experience. It is not unrealistic to expect to earn £35k p/a once you are trained in the products.
