Contract Type
Full Time

This is a great opportunity to join a small but growing publisher, based in beautiful Bath, to work as a media sales executive.

They are looking for a real self-starter with some sales/account management/fundraising experience to join their small friendly team. They want someone who will, in time, instinctively know what needs to be done and when and who will fully understand, once trained, what it takes to fully maximise all commercial opportunities of a market leading magazine and its associated brand extensions

You don't necessarily have to have media sales experience to apply (always helps though!) but you do need to be a smart, savvy individual who is target driven and can sell in a consultative manner.

The role will be to sell on an established brand and be both print, digital and one off projects.

The role involves:

  • be confident in selling both to existing and new advertisers
  • creatively thinking: maximising all commercial opportunities both in print and digital sales
  • mostly office based but needs to be comfortable presenting face to face to customers
  • attending exhibitions and trade events
  • working to deadlines and KPI’s

It’s not all hard work but they’ve got a tight team who have fun too so whilst there may be a steep learning curve to someone new to media, you should enjoy doing it!

You will need to have a successful background in sales (or a minimum of customer service where you’ve been targeted on up-selling), a stable work history, and be someone who is really keen to get stuck in and kick start a career in media sales! Salary up to a maximum of £23k plus generous commission.
