Cotswold Life magazine celebrates the very best aspects of life in this fabulous region – all wrapped up in a beautiful monthly magazine. At the heart of the magazine are features on villages, towns and cities, society occasions and food & drink events, hotels and restaurants, as well as theatre, drama, ballet, music, festivals and family entertainment.
Cotswold Life is the market-leading lifestyle magazine in the area and celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2017. We also run the leading Food & Drink Awards event in the Cotswolds, which has been running for over 15 years.
We are currently recruiting for an Account Manager to sell print and digital advertising solutions on this popular publication to businesses throughout Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Oxfordshire and North Gloucestershire, as well as presenting sponsorship opportunities for the Food & Drink Awards.
As an Account Manager you will be either working remotely or from our Cheltenham office with the majority of your time spent visiting clients, presenting our portfolio of products, learning and listening and providing credible consultations with businesses throughout the area. You will be supported by a manager with daily communication, a weekly team meeting and monthly 1-1 meetings.
The challenge for local media businesses to remain relevant to their core SME customers is significant. An integral part of the role is to build a strong business network of contacts by attending local events and becoming the face of local media advertising and a trusted advisor to these businesses.
This challenging yet fulfilling role will really give you the chance to shine and develop existing long-term relationships to the next level. Alongside a professional sales approach, you must be able to communicate at all levels, deliver concise and relevant presentations, and host question and answer sessions at senior level.
