Working closely with the Company’s Group Editor, Graphic Designer and Website Manager you will ensure editorial and advertisement copy instructions are effectively communicated to relevant departments whilst ensuring deadlines and customer demands are met.

With a proactive and flexible approach to work, you will act as an ambassador for MDM Publishing Ltd.  There are exciting opportunities for international travel, attending industry trade events both in the UK and internationally to continuously raise awareness of our offering and maintain awareness of our competitors.  As well as trade events, we attend evening functions and encourage our sales team to host our clients.  Responsible for the retention and growth of existing customer accounts and the attainment of new business, you will develop excellent relationships with all stakeholders to ensure we continue to maximise profit and exceed sales targets, while encouraging the development of new business.
