Are you a driven individual from an account management background looking to start a career in consultative media sales? My client is a leading media advertising company who are looking for a dynamic individual to drive growth and further cement their position as a market leader. This is a fantastic opportunity to join a globally recognised brand. Don't miss out!

Job Description:

As a Media Account Executive your primary role will be to drive sales growth through the following methods:

- Responsibility for the entire sales process – new business development and management of existing client relationships.
- Building relationships with key partners through a consultative sales approach to maximise revenue.
- Management of the after sales process. This will involve ownership and responsibility for advertising campaigns.
- Working with the Sales Director to agree realistic sales targets.
- Devise strategies to overcome lapsed or inactive clients and to encourage growth in current clients – monthly, quarterly and yearly plans to be put in place.
- Regular visits to clients to establish and maintain fruitful long-term working relationships.

What We're Looking For:

Experience within a sales background is desirable for this role but not essential. A positive personality, analytical mindset and passion to develop a career in media sales are key criteria. Other key qualities include:

- The ability to sell consultatively and manage client accounts.
- An understanding of social media methods and an analytical approach to everyday work.
- An ability to understand and achieve KPI's to maximise sales revenue.
- Good presentation and communication skills.
- Self motivated with an ability to work on your own initiative.
- A professional yet assertive approach to managing client relationships.
- A keen interest in media and a desire to learn more about this dynamic sector.
