Missy, a Leeds List Dog

Think Leeds-List is a magazine? Think again. We’re a digital agency with our own media platform.

But not your run-of-the-mill agency, that’s for sure. Yep, we do massively successful paid campaigns for household name clients, but we do it without the BS, dodgy work-life balance and clickbait approach you’ll find elsewhere. It turns out it’s possible to work hard and smash it out of the park while having fun, getting home for tea and enjoying a sprinkling of doggy snuggles throughout the day. So if you’re looking for your next digital advertising sales role with growth potential and opportunities galore, but you don’t want to be stuck in the agency grind, read on…

It’s an agency, but not as you know it

We’re the best place for clients who want real results. Put simply, we own our own platform with a truly engaged audience, and that means we don’t have to do the nasty stuff that a lot of the agencies do. We’re not a content mill, churning out keyword-stuffed rubbish for clients that don’t know any better. No, we’re obsessed with data science, and we use our friendly tone of voice, backed up with a response marketing approach, to deliver win after win for big companies.

The likes of LNER, Sky, Channel 4, first direct and Opera North come to us because they know that we can get industry-leading results for their advertising campaigns. A click-through rate of 22% for CityFibre? A frankly brilliant site-wide average time-on-page of 2 minutes, 26 seconds? That’s what you get with a brand that puts the reader experience first, doesn’t clutter its website with pop-up ads and communicates a client’s key messages in a way that isn’t a turn-off.

Imagine those numbers in your next pitch

A product like this practically sells itself, but first, you have to get it in front of the right people – and that’s where you come in. Our Digital Advertising Sales Managers are the first touchpoint for new clients. You’ll be out in the world, networking, building relationships and looking for new opportunities. It’s a fun, fast-paced job that requires you to think on your feet and pitch on-the-go, so you can turn chance meetings and cold calls into deals that will fuel our growth.

Complete autonomy to deliver revenue? Independently and without supervision? You betcha. The freedom to build your own pipeline? To bring on new clients and push deals across the line? Sure thing. And an uncapped bonus? Damned right, because your success is our success. Schmoozing is a big part of the job, so you’ll need to be a people person. And it certainly won’t hurt if you’re a charmer or a smooth talker. But you’ll also have to be commercially-minded because you’ll be selling complex advertising solutions, tailored to each client.

Grow with us – and get great rewards from the beginning

Work-life balance is important to us. Working late is the exception, not the rule. We have fun, not forced fun – and there’ll be VIP invites along the way. We pay good salaries to good people. You’ll get 28 days holiday as standard – plus all the bank holidays and your birthday off. It’s an office-first role, but we pride ourselves on flexibility too. We have dogs in the office, because they bring joy to the 9-to-5, and we’re just a good bunch of people (if we do say so ourselves).

You’ll be joining a scale-up that punches well above its weight and we want you to be a key part of our ambitious growth plans. You’ll have the chance to truly influence the next phase of Leeds-List. That means opportunities for you and we’ll provide the support and training you need to progress, develop and make a real impact. The results we’ve been achieving for our clients mean we’re growing fast, which is why we’re recruiting Digital Advertising Sales Managers. If all of this sounds like a refreshing change from being a tiny cog in a big wheel, then give us a call.
