We have an exciting opportunity for a Sales Executive to join our well-established team working across some of our most successful lifestyle magazines. This amazing portfolio enables us to connect advertisers with thousands of customers across the UK.
With a base in our friendly offices in Worthing, we are looking for a highly motivated and self-driven sales individual who will enjoy the responsibility of managing their own workload and clients.
The main purpose of the role is to grow the advertising revenue for these magazines, calling new and existing businesses and consulting with them to understand their advertising/marketing plans and providing them with the best solutions we can offer.
It’s a great chance to be creative and produce imaginative advertising solutions, constantly looking for opportunities and building and creating great relationships with potential customers. With a strong outbound telephone-based background you will have superb consultative sales skills and be able to work to tight deadlines in a fast-paced, lively sales environment.
Although the majority of this role is telephone based you do have the opportunity to attend relevant exhibitions throughout the year to meet clients and cement relationships and expand your network of customers.
To be successful in this long-term opportunity it is essential that you thrive on picking up the phone to new clients and have proven experience of winning new business.
