Are you working within sales in recruitment advertising sector, and seeking a role offering a higher package or wider variety of product? Perhaps you are in a similar senior role but would like a position with more flexibility for home-based working? Perhaps you're in wider media sales and looking for a role at an award winning company offering something different?
If so, we have an ideal role for you. We're working with a leading media company seeking a forward-thinking Senior Sales Executive to take responsibility for selling recruitment media services across a number of niche industry job boards. This is not just a transactional role, we need somebody with both an eye for recurring transactional revenue, and larger more creative recruitment sponsorship deals.
You will lead be required to manage inbound leads, existing accounts and developing new business. The role will not be starting from scratch as you will be taking over existing established offerings and pipelines/accounts.
You will ideally already have some contacts and exposure across advertising agencies, brands and recruitment consultancies, though if you have no transferable contacts this is not an issue as it's more about understanding their route to market for the products being sold.
This is a company that really looks after their staff, cares about their employees and takes pride in being recognised as best in industry. With a central London office, they take a very relaxed approach to flexible working. Time within the office would of course be ideal but there's limited pressure on exact amounts, it can be flexible based on everyone's needs and preferences.
The Senior Sales Executive role is a hybrid of managing existing accounts and targeting new business. So you will need to be both excellent at customer service and delivery, and an intelligent consultative salesperson, able to pitch and develop new ideas for businesses to work with the organisation. Creativity is praised and nurtured, and ideas and solutions always welcome.
All applicants will ideally have relevant recruitment media sales experience, though candidates with strong media sales backgrounds and the right ability and aptitude to transfer into this niche will also be considered.
Due to the flexible nature of the position which can be 3 days from home and 2 days in the office, the successful candidate can be based within London or outside such as Hertfordshire, Essex, Bucks, Berks, though candidates located within the city will also be considered. If this sounds like an opportunity that you could be passionate about, please do let us know.
