Somerset Life magazine celebrates the very best aspects of life in this fabulous county – all wrapped up in a beautiful monthly magazine. Each issue offers readers the chance to explore Somerset with features on the county’s towns and villages plus interviews with the celebrities and most celebrated residents.
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 Somerset.
You will be regularly visiting existing advertising clients as well as targeting new and lapsed businesses advising them on the best ways to attract new customers and associating their luxury brand with our affluent readers.
You will be out visiting customers the majority of the time, so the need to drive is essential. As well as visiting clients with our pre-booked appointments you will also drop into other business and organisations, taking the opportunity to speak to decision makers and promote the advertising opportunities that exist in this well-known brand.
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.
PLEASE APPLY IF YOU HAVE:

Very shortly after receiving your CV, if we are interested we will call you to understand why you believe you have all the right attributes and are perfect to be shortlisted for interview, so please be prepared and look forward to this phone call. All applications and enquiries will be dealt with in the strictest confidence.
