Devon Life, Cornwall Life, Dorset Magazine, Hampshire Life and Somerset Life are all part of our South West magazines portfolio. All are glossy monthly lifestyle magazines that celebrate all that is great about life in our wonderful counties. At the heart of the magazines are features on villages, towns and cities, society occasions, food & drink events, hotels, restaurants, as well as theatre, drama, ballet, music, festivals and family entertainment.
Working on these prestigious products we are looking for dynamic, driven, customer-focused and experienced Advertising Sales Executives to join our friendly team at our offices in Cheltenham. We are looking for confident communicators who thrive in a sales-focused, targeted environment.
This opportunity is a telephone-based sales role that will see you selling print and digital advertising campaigns and solutions to local businesses. As well as managing existing customers and seeing that they continuously improve their current advertising campaigns you will also work with new clients, inspiring them with genuine, cost-effective ideas and solutions tailor-made for their business.
You must be comfortable with a consultative approach to selling. A background in media sales is preferable, but more essential is your negotiation skills, confidence, impressive sales presentation and closing techniques that demonstrate you excel in a target-driven environment.
