Are you working in media sales across digital and print formats, and seeking a role with more flexibility for home-based working? Perhaps you’re just looking for a role with more creative freedom, and an employer who really cares about their staff? If the above rings true and you either have media sales experience from the education sector or media sales experience from a different sector and a strong aptitude for digital it could be worth us having a conversation
We’re working with a leading media company in the education sector seeking a forward-thinking Media Sales Manager to take responsibility for selling media services across both print and digital formats.
They offer a whole range of products such as events, magazines, e-newsletters, banner advertising, breakfast meetings, podcasts, email marketing, data services and branded content. And as such they need a Senior Media Sales Manager with a great understanding of different print and digital products, and excellent sales skills, capable of both managing existing established accounts and hunting new business with leading players within their industry.
Given the nature of their industry we’re seeking somebody with synergy to their sector so anybody with experience in areas such as land & country, would be ideal, however candidates from media agencies or in house within not for profit may also be considered.
This is a company that really looks after their staff, cares about their employees and takes pride in being recognised as best in industry. With a central London office, they take a very relaxed approach to flexible working. Time within the office would of course be ideal but there’s limited pressure on exact amounts, it can be flexible based on everyone’s needs and preferences.
The Media Sales Manager role is a hybrid of managing existing accounts and targeting new business. So you will need to be both excellent at customer service and delivery, and an intelligent consultative salesperson, able to pitch and develop new ideas for businesses to work with the organisation. Creativity is praised and nurtured, and ideas and solutions always welcome.
All applicants must have a minimum of 3 years relevant media sales experience with a proven background selling digital solutions, as given the nature of the role candidates will be expected to hit the ground running.
Due to the flexible nature of the position, the successful candidate can be based within London or outside such as Hertfordshire, Essex, Bucks, Berks, though candidates located within the city will also be considered. If this sounds like an opportunity that you could be passionate about, please do let us know.
