Are you a proven media sales superstar? Perhaps you have an abundance of sales skills and are looking for a move into luxury publishing? Maybe you’re a grad looking for your first breakthrough role? Or you may just be a keen, enthusiastic people-person with a natural flair for hard work and big rewards…
Our award-winning company, which currently publishes successful Kent luxury lifestyle magazines and annual publications, is seeking a charismatic account manager for Kent’s biggest monthly publication.
This is a unique opportunity to join a fun but professional company at an exciting time of expansion. Based in a lively office in Ashford’s creative hub, Coachworks, you will need to be ambitious, organised, reliable, comfortable working to targets and self-motivated to manage your day to day schedule, but have a team mentality to support the rest of the media sales team in hitting daily, weekly, monthly and annual targets.
You will be supported through daily contact with the Sales Director and will work with the support of the wider sales and editorial team both at Coachworks and at various locations across Kent on a regular basis.
You will be an excellent communicator who can handle both face-to-face and telephone interaction with clients with ease. You should be well connected in Kent and be equally adept at both developing new business contacts and maintaining existing customer relationships.
As well as being target driven and ambitious, your ability to negotiate will be second to none, and you will back this up with good admin and IT skills. Your role will be varied including selling one-off features and repeat series bookings; relationship building with Kent businesses, attractions, and marketing professionals through cold-calling, networking and in-person meetings; sourcing leads; liaising with the editorial team to plan space; routine admin, email correspondence and invoicing; attending Kent events and meetings with the sales team.
‘Deadline’ is our middle name and the team never misses a target, so you will need to be ready to hit the ground running and prepared to reach the levels of success that you know you’re capable of.
You will have a small client base to start with, with a determination to build up your own database of clients through cold calling and in-person introductions.
While sales experience is a plus, full training would be offered to the right person.
So if you:
– are enthusiastic, confident, reliable, hard-working and self-motivated
– are passionate about Kent and excited to develop leads in the county and represent the magazine
– have exceptional communication skills and the ability to build rapport
– have excellent relationship management skills backed up by existing leads, clients and customers in the region
– are target driven, thrive under pressure and ambitious to succeed
– have a full driving licence…
Then we want to hear from you!
You will receive a competitive salary, plus commission and bonuses,
