Who we’re looking for:

It doesn’t matter what industry you’re coming from – if you can make meaningful contacts using a consultative sales approach, you’ll do well here. You’ll need to think fast, identifying needs, overcoming objections and pitching bespoke solutions, off the cuff. But you’ll also need to be organised. Our CRM has to be kept up to date and our forecasting relies on your reporting.

Prior experience is a must. We’re looking for someone with at least 3 years behind them – that means you’ve worked in a consultative sales role creating meaningful partnerships with commercial organisations. You’ll need a proven track record, so we’ll be asking for numbers.

What you’ll do:

  • Take complete control of your sales pipeline, identifying, qualifying and converting leads to drive revenue
  • Find and create opportunities through pro-active lead generation, reaching a minimum level of meaningful contact each week
  • Create and attend appointments, with agendas set out in advance and outcomes logged in the CRM
  • Present and pitch solutions, responding to feedback, answering pre-sales questions and handling objections to close the deal
  • Produce high quality proposals, using the value of the deal to determine the time and detail required on a job-by-job basis
  • Regularly report on progress, activity, pipeline and revenue to allow accurate forecasting against your performance
  • Quickly and effectively log deals, contacts and conversations on our CRM
  • Understand the core features and benefits of our product range, and of advertising products across the market, to offer demonstrable value
