Are you working in sales management in the recruitment advertising sector 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 scope to train and develop staff?
If so, we have an ideal role for you. We’re working with a leading media company in the recruitment media sector seeking a forward-thinking Media Sales Manager to take responsibility for selling recruitment media services across both print and digital formats, as well as coaching staff and developing sales teams.
You will lead by example, generating substantial revenues from productive key accounts, inbound leads and developing new business. This is achieved primarily via effective outgoing sales calls, as well as through attending face-to-face sales meetings and industry events as appropriate.
You will have a strong network of industry contacts across advertising agencies and recruitment consultancies. You will be required to be a brand ambassador in driving key relationships, whilst spearheading the sales approach with direct employers.
Well versed in the day-to-day operational aspects of recruitment systems and job board platforms, you will be able to demonstrate a strong understanding of sales processes and so able to lead by example with new and existing staff. You will be able to recruit and onboard new members of the team, providing coaching and training as required.
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 recruitment media sales experience and experience of managing a sales team, as given the nature of the role candidates will be expected to hit the ground running.
Due to the flexible nature of the position which can be 4 days from home and 1 day in the office, 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.
