Our vibrant offices in Barking have an opportunity for a Media Sales Executive. With views of Canary Wharf and just a short walk into the town centre, break-out kitchen facilities and only five minutes walk from Barking underground station we offer a fantastic working environment. This role will see you working on our successful East London and Essex titles which are well-established brands that are much loved by the communities they serve.
Working within a fantastic team environment, you will be speaking to potential and existing customers and selling them the opportunity to advertise in our strong local newspapers and online products. When you aren’t calling clients, you will be uploading adverts onto the system, passing these on to be designed and chasing customers to approve their advert so that you can process the order.
Within this role you will have a real chance to develop and progress. The role will also be responsible for ad hoc projects and supplements within our well-known products.
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.
Applications from individuals seeking full or part-time hours will be considered.
