Each magazine (Jewellery Focus, Pet Gazette, Hotel Owner and Funeral Service Times) enjoys a market-leading position in terms of circulation and in levels of advertising support too. Therefore we need strong sales people who can translate that market position into advertising revenue.
We’re working hard on bringing modernised websites to market so that we can offer increasingly creative print/digital packages to our clients. You will be instrumental in how these packages are designed.
The environment is professional, friendly and supportive. You are given all of the tools you need to do the job and the company makes an earnest effort to help you succeed.
We are an ambitious company with a proven track record of launching successful brands, and we have plans to launch more print magazines and news websites. Our London office opened last summer and the team is growing - talent is recognised and rewarded very quickly so the most able applicants should expect early advancement, and the opportunity to play a key part in the growth and future success of the company.
Basic salary is negotiable, but we offer a total package (including a generous bonus scheme) in excess of £40k.
