Job Description

We are seeking a naturally confident person who is able to cope with working under pressure and to targets, in order to achieve goals and earn significant bonuses as a result of their hard work.

If you succeed in this role then you will have the opportunity to increase your income through commission earnings to high twenties to mid-thirties by your 2nd year in the job. If you become their best executive then it would be more like earnings of double this.

You’ll be working in a light airy office at a “young at heart” but professional workplace, no weekends or bank holidays to be worked plus at least a week off at Christmas. Longer term there is the opportunity to move into a management position, and/or become involved in editorial teams and planning. There will also be options for international travel to attend trade shows in future.

Working for an advertising firm that has been in business for 20 years, you will use your communication and persuasion skills to convince other businesses to place advertising in a variety of publications (print and online).

This will take a lot of effort – you will need to make 60 – 90 outgoing cold calls to businesses on a daily basis, as part of a team of people who are all doing the same – you’ll be part of a buzzing office that’ll keep you motivated to make the next call. You will need to have a thick skin, able to accept people saying no to you in the first instance, and organised so that you follow up opportunities to turn prospects into paying customers.

The firm are looking for interested and interesting people who love to talk to others, and people who are self-motivated, hungry to hit targets and earn more money. You have to have a positive outlook on life, and be a determined and committed person to be the right person for the role.
