Media sales executive

CPL is an award-winning content marketing agency. We specialise in creating content, publishing, media sales and marketing for businesses and membership bodies. Our media sales clients include the Camping and Caravanning Club, Chartered Institution of Wastes Management, Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and the British Psychological Society.

We are looking for an enthusiastic person to join our media sales team to work on a leading UK membership magazine and website.

THE ROLE  
You will be selling advertising across print and digital channels. This will include actively searching for new business, as well as maintaining a current advertiser portfolio from start to finish, including closing the deal.

You will need to be a highly motivated individual who is prepared to put in the work involved in building your own new contacts and client database.

No two days will be the same: you will be speaking to clients over the phone – and, when Covid-19 restrictions allow, face to face – to gain an understanding of their business objectives and to create compelling advertising and promotional solutions; you will work with sales and production colleagues to draw up flatplans to ensure artwork arrives on time and is in the right place. 

You must be able to demonstrate the ability to handle different systems, be computer literate, have good verbal and written communication skills, and demonstrate an ability to manage your time effectively.  

RESPONSIBILITIES 

You will be responsible for managing existing advertisers, and identifying and growing new ones. Your main responsibilities will include:

  • Selling advertising across print, digital, web and mobile
  • Selling sponsorship and webinars
  • Identifying and prospecting new opportunities and expanding advertiser accounts
  • Developing revenues by selling over the phone and face to face
  • Meeting existing and potential new advertisers
  • Liaising with production and finance colleagues
  • Flatplanning and collecting artwork

DESIRED SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE 

Ideally, you will already have commercial experience of selling print and/or online advertising for a B2B or B2C print/online title. Previous experience of working for membership bodies would be an advantage, but not essential.

You will be optimistic, enthusiastic, professional, energetic and talkative. Our selling style is consultative, not aggressive, so you must be able to demonstrate excellent negotiation and communication skills, have a positive and adaptable attitude, and be looking for a new challenge and an opportunity to develop your career.

HOW YOU'LL BENEFIT

  • Competitive salary with uncapped commission
  • 28 days’ annual leave, plus bank holidays
  • Pension scheme
  • Relaxed, friendly team: free fruit; games room; regular social events
  • Subsidised parking
  • Long-service bonus

CPL is an equal opportunity employer.
