Are you working in sales management in the recruitment advertising sector, and seeking a role offering you the chance to head up a new division with great future growth potential? Perhaps you are in a similar senior role but would like a position with more flexibility for home-based working? Maybe you’re just looking for a role with more scope to build your own team?
If so, we have an ideal role for you. We’re working with a leading media company seeking a forward-thinking Senior Sales Manager to take responsibility for selling recruitment media services across digital formats, as well as coaching staff and developing sales teams. This is not just a transactional role, we need somebody with both an eye for recurring transactional revenue, and larger more creative recruitment sponsorship deals.
You will lead by example, generating substantial revenues from productive key accounts, inbound leads and developing new business. The role will not be starting from scratch as you will be taking over both the strategic operation and sales funnel of 7/8 existing products which you will manage with your team. And there is alwready substantial pielines of opportunity, and a black book of existing customers across other media formats.
You will ideally already have a strong network of industry contacts across advertising agencies, brands and recruitment consultancies. You will be required to be a brand ambassador in driving key relationships, whilst spearheading the strategic sales approach with direct employers. Whilst existing management experience is desirable the door is not closed to candidates looking to take that step up, if you can demonstrate the right attitude and skillset.
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 Senior 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, 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 3 days from home and 2 days 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.
