New Year – New Career with BLMGroup Lincolnshire

An additional sales person is required to join an independent and ambitious publishing company based in North East Lincolnshire.
The role will involve selling advertising space and online media to established and new clients and this would suit someone who primarily enjoys selling over the phone, although there are opportunities to undertake some face to face selling if preferred.

The company publishes various monthly magazines, periodicals and online platforms on an international basis and on a regional basis. You don't need to have worked in marketing before or sold advertising space as full training is provided, but previous experience in sales is essential.

Duties will include:

  • Managing client relationships
  • Contact potential clients to explain about upcoming editorials and offer the opportunity to advertise alongside them
  • Generating new business via cold calling, up-selling and the managing of existing/previous clients
  • Informing clients of other options for advertising, such as online banner advertising and editorial opportunities

To succeed you will need:

  • Excellent communication skills, both verbal and written
  • Initiative and the ability to think on your feet
  • A competitive and positive 'can do' attitude
  • The ability to manage your time well
  • An enthusiasm for selling and negotiating deals
  • An excellent telephone manner
  • Exceptional customer service skills

All applicants must be able to work from our Lincolnshire office, Mon-Fri, 9-5

Please apply with a covering letter that demonstrates you have the selling skills required. NB: All applications will be treated in the strictest of confidence.
