Our award-winning Lancashire Life is THE county magazine for this wonderful county, the authoritative voice of its people and an outstanding guide to its places. At its heart is history and heritage, reflected in beautifully crafted pages charting all the positive things happening in our towns, cities, villages and glorious countryside.
Working remotely, we are currently recruiting for an Account Manager to sell print and digital advertising solutions on this popular publication to businesses throughout a geographical area of Lancashire. The role will see you selling print and digital advertising campaigns to both new and existing clients at the luxury brand end of the market. You will therefore enjoy driving to meet clients, improving current advertising campaigns and inspiring businesses with creative, tailor-made solutions that will give them a great return on their investment.
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.
The majority of your time is spent visiting clients, presenting our portfolio of products, learning and listening and providing credible consultations with businesses throughout the area.
The 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, as well as deliver complex presentations and host question and answer sessions at a senior level.
