Deputy Commercial Manager- Media Publishing
Deputy Commercial Manager
£50,000 -£55,000 + £20,000-£25,000 in bonus
Leading financial media publishing and events business based in the city is currently looking to recruit a highly talented deputy commercial manager. This role is split between selling advertising solutions across print, digital and events, working with some of the leading hedge fund businesses in the industry. You will inherit an existing client pool but will also be expected to build on this through some additional new business.
You will also be tasked with managing a team of 6 sales execs, holding weekly team meetings to ensure targets are being met. This role is a critical hire for the business following a recent acquisition from a competitor. The business has grown significantly throughout 2016 and there are aggressive plans for future growth in 2017.
International travel is a key part of this role, regular trips to Asia and across the US to cities including New York, Boston, Dallas and San Francisco.
We are looking to hear from candidates with an exceptional track record in media sales or b2b sales, ideally a minimum of 4 year’s experience. You must be able to provide clear examples of delivering consistently high revenue figures over a sustained period of time. Additionally, management experience is highly preferable but is not a must.
The business is a friendly, sociable media organisation and whilst many of their clients are large corporate firms their business culture is fairly relaxed and non-corporate. Therefore, we are keen to speak with candidates who have a background in selling to leading corporates but work in a fairly 'media’ type business culture.
The bonus scheme is paid quarterly, £5,000 paid out four times a year just for hitting target. This figure is completely uncapped, 10% is paid over 110% of target so there is genuinely exceptional money to be made for the right person.
