We are expert digital and print content providers, offering our clients a range of services including editorial and content creation, sub-editing and proofreading, print and project management, media sales, digital publishing and video production.
Our forté is representing membership bodies, charities, customer organisations, professional societies, corporate organisations and commercial publishers.
Your role will involve selling advertising for a number of different and varied membership organisations.
Your role will include speaking with clients both over the phone and via face-to-face meetings, getting to understand their businesses aims and objectives to create convincing advertising and promotional solutions through your publications and websites.

In terms of personality, you will be professional, energetic and talkative. Our selling style is consultative, and not aggressive. You must be able to demonstrate excellent negotiation and communication skills (both over the telephone and face-to-face), a positive and adaptive attitude, and be looking for a new challenge and an opportunity to develop your career.
