Recruitment? Up until recently that’s perhaps a word that scares more people than it excites. Though with the changing fortunes of the commercial world, the advances in hybrid working, and ultimately the attitude shift from employers to its importance, it’s now one of the most lucrative areas for any candidates working in media sales. And as a result of this growth and attitude shift in the market we’re working with a client currently looking to expand its sales team, as they cannot deal with the volume of customers available for their products.
The business we’re representing operate a number of marketing leading niche recruitment websites and publications, and are seeking 2 new sales executives to help them deal with the exponential growth and opportunity in the market. The role will be a hybrid of managing inbound and existing recruitment accounts, and making contact with potential advertisers seeking staff in their sector.
The role would suit somebody money motivated, organised, pro-active, and comfortable working with CRM systems. Whilst they would love any applicants to come from recruitment sales backgrounds, they’re flexible in considering candidates from any sales background in media agency side or inhouse, recruitment agencies or any wider sales role with the a similar set of day to day duties. Though candidates without recruitment media backgrounds would not come in at the upper end of the base salary range, but could achieve this through completing their internal sales training courses.
The company operates a hybrid working set up, where you can be based from their exclusive and central location 2 times a week, and 3 days from home. So the successful candidate can be based within London or outside such as Hertfordshire, Essex, Bucks, Berks, though candidates located within the city will also of course be considered. If this sounds like an opportunity that you could be passionate about, please do let us know.
