We are recruiting for an Advertising Account Manager to work on our beautiful portfolio of County Life Magazines. 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.
We have created this opportunity to focus solely on selling advertising linked to our features and specialist publications. Throughout the year we produce pub guides, Christmas specials, guides on afternoon teas, food & drink and country shows as well as features on women in business, celebrity chefs, interior design etc .
We know well in advance what features we are running with and this role is all about communicating that to the local community linked to the subject matter and giving them the opportunity to develop their brand alongside the feature or in the guide by advertising their business, restaurant, store or services.
As well as print advertising you will also be offering digital advertising solutions to a database of new or lapsed clients. It’s important that you look to increase this database of clients by winning new clients and continuously looking for new businesses that haven’t yet advertised with us and would benefit from doing so.
You will spend the majority of your time on the phone speaking/selling to businesses throughout the North. A proportion of your time is spent processing adverts, chasing deadlines, uploading digital products and sending visuals to potential new clients. Therefore the need to have a good grasp of various databases/IT skills alongside time management is key for success in the role.
SALARY, BONUS & BENEFITS
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.
