At Guardian Jobs, we’re changing the way our customers reach and engage with their audience.
As one of the UK’s most trusted and premium recruitment brands, we have built strong relationships with organisations of all shapes and sizes, across virtually all sectors – in particular with charities, government, the arts and all sorts of commercial enterprises.
But we aren’t stopping there. Our future strategy of boosting job applications by developing innovative products, based on our razor sharp insights, will allow us to grow our client base whilst being ever more effective in targeting active and passive job seekers.
Would you like to be part of our exciting journey?
We are looking for Advertising Sales Executives to join the Guardian Jobs team (or family as we like to call it).
In this role you’ll be tasked with growing advertising revenue for a particular sector. You’ll do this by partnering with new and existing clients, to create and sell just the right recruitment advertising solutions to fulfil their unique needs.
You’ll use your entrepreneurial zeal and creative flair to explore ideas for fresh advertising products and unusual campaigns, across all our platforms, and utilising the industry’s latest technologies.
This is a fast-paced, demanding role in which you’ll usually liaise with clients by telephone, but you’ll sometimes pitch your ideas face-to-face, too.
We will give you all the support and training you need to help you hit your revenue targets – not just when you first join, but on an ongoing basis as your progress in your career with us. Not to mention up to 40% commission on top of your salary and a generous company benefits package.
In return, we’ll expect you to be a self-starter with the drive, commercial acumen and self-discipline to consistently hit your sales targets and steadily grow your sector’s revenues. You’ll be buzzing with enthusiasm, itching to pick up the phone for the next sales call, and bursting with innovative ideas.
You’ll have superb written and verbal communication skills, and you’ll be a passionate advocate of the Guardian brand and what it represents.
You don’t necessarily need much previous experience in sales – attitude and aptitude is key.
If you feel like this advert is speaking directly to you – don’t delay. We’d love to hear from you.
To apply, please attach your latest CV and a cover which tells us why you want the role and why you think you’re a great fit. Don’t forget to include your relevant sales experience or transferable skills!
