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 clients include AB InBev, Kier Group, Godolphin, Camping and Caravanning Club, Chartered Institution of Wastes Management and the British Psychological Society.

We are looking for an enthusiastic person to join our media sales team to work across our membership magazines and websites.

You will be selling advertising for a variety of membership organisations, selling across print and digital channels and giving operational support to  the wider team. 

No two days will be the same: you will be speaking to clients over the phone and face to face, to gain an understanding of their business objectives 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. 

As you’ll be working across a number of markets and sectors, and have varied responsibilities, you must be able to demonstrate the ability to handle different systems, be computer literate, have excellent verbal and written communication skills, and demonstrate time-management skills.  


You will be responsible for managing existing advertisers, 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


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 (both on the telephone and face to face), have a positive and adaptable attitude, and be looking for a new challenge and an opportunity to develop your career.


  • Competitive salary with uncapped commission
  • 28 days’ annual leave, plus bank holidays
  • Pension scheme
  • Relaxed, friendly office: free fruit; games room; regular social events

CPL is an equal opportunity employer.
