Graduate / Junior Sales Executive - Events & Media Publisher
£18,000 - £25,000 Basic DOE (c£60,000 uncapped OTE). Commission is paid monthly and starts at a rate of 10% of total sales, increasing to 15% as an individual’s monthly sales increase.
Who we are?
We are a family run £2m dynamic and ambitious multimedia publisher and event’s organiser delivering unique and exclusive news, analysis and events to three vertical markets which are the UK’s Public Sector, NHS and rail industry.
The brands that service these sectors have a combined audience of over 650,000 readers and £0.75 trillion per annum to spend, making them a hugely important target market our advertisers and event sponsor to engage with.
There are currently 19 of us spanning sales, marketing, editorial, production, accounts and credit control with an average length of service currently at 6.2 years per person. We like to have a laugh whilst remaining focused on our goals and take a lot of pride in the job we do for our clients. Our youngest salesperson has been here 7 years and earns in excess of £100K.
What we do?
Just like the Metro we give our readers free access to all of the content we produce online, in-print as well as our apps, the editorial we produce addresses challenges faced by our readers whilst also looking at what the solutions might be.
Our events although similar in content and objective allow buyers and suppliers to meet face to face whilst also listening to leaders from their respective sectors talk about strategy and opportunities for the supply chain.
This business model enables us to sell large volumes of advertising and event sponsorship to organisations from across the globe looking to target these sectors.
What are we looking for?
We are looking for quick learners who can get to grips with a market place and identify opportunities and present them as valid reasons why organisations should be advertising and sponsoring our events. We do all of our business over the phone or via Skype so we’re looking for people who aren’t afraid of the phone to cold call and win new business, but also have the ability to manage and develop those accounts with a mature manner. We find most of our own leads from the national media, government announcements as well as social media and industry/competitor press, of which there aren’t that many.
As well as hosting our own events we do exhibit at key industry exhibitions across the country and so candidates will be expected to come to those events and represent the brands as well as having the opportunity to network with new and existing clients.
