A rare opportunity has become available working on our exciting Hertfordshire portfolio. As well as our market-leading newspapers and websites The Comet, The Herts Advertiser and Welwyn Hatfield Times, our portfolio includes an array of multi-media platforms including Hertfordshire Life magazine, Hertfordshire Business Awards, local community awards and a catalogue of tailored digital solutions. This sales opportunity is based from Stevenage but covers the north Hertfordshire area.
As the Advertising Account Manager for the area you will be in regular consultation with an array of clients, providing advertising and marketing solutions on our market-leading portfolio of products. You will, as a result of consulting with our customers and understanding their needs, offer the correct multi-platform campaigns such as awards sponsorship, targeted digital display advertising, websites, content marketing and e-marketing along with our print portfolio.
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. You will be supported by a manager in our Stevenage offices with daily communication and a weekly team meeting/one-to-one.
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 and deliver complex presentations and host question and answer sessions at board level.
