Media Sales Representative - Junior Sales
An opportunity has arisen to work for an established (Essex Based) advertising company, focusing mainly on UK based airports and shopping centres. Due to a company takeover and expansion requirements our client is currently recruiting high calibre telesales individuals with or without telesales experience.
The position will be working as part of the regional sales team but will report directly to a Senior Sales Representative who will give full training from the outset. This position naturally moves to a Senior Sales Rep. role so the successful candidate will be expected to be promoted to a senior position within 12 months.
We are looking for an enthusiastic hardworking individual who is looking to join a fast growing media sales company based in Essex. Three days will be in the office and two days of the week will be out on the road meeting potential clients. The successful candidate MUST have a full clean driving license and access to their own vehicle.
We are looking for hard working, motivated individuals who can think on their feet and adapt to different situations. The main part of the job is arranging appointments for the Senior Sales Representatives over the phone. You must be confident in speaking with directors and managers of different types of businesses.
Previous telesales experience is an advantage but not essential as this position is ideal for young, hungry individuals who are keen to move into a position of responsibility within 12 months and benefit from a very generous commission structure.
In order to arrange appointments, the successful candidate will be ‘cold calling’ and emailing businesses around the UK. They will be selling digital advertising in major shopping centres and airports by offering a 10 - 30 second TV style advert designed and made by the company which will then be played on the plasma screens at that particular sites.
Typically each advertising deal that is signed is worth between £2,000 - £5,000 on average, but one can charge a different rate depending on the type of business. Historic multisite deals have been worth up to £50,000 so it is in the candidates hands as to how successful they are in winning good quality business. Commission is paid as a flat 3% on all deals signed up. Bonuses are also given on successful business turnaround.
