Senior Account Managers

Salary: £28,000 - £35,000 + uncapped bonus

Location: Gateshead

Job Type: Permanent

Are you an experienced sales person within advertising or digital media? Are you looking for a new challenge where you are given the autonomy to manage your own publication? If you are target driven and looking for uncapped bonus then Gillespie Recruitment would like to speak to you.  

We are delighted to be working with a leading publisher of visitor guides to over 70 locations across the UK.  The role has the flexibility to be office based, hybrid working or remote working for an exceptional candidate that can hit the ground running.  

 

THE ROLE 

Candidates will have a proven track record of presenting to, and securing sales from, senior decision-makers. You will be capable of generating new business and managing your own workload. As a Senior Account Manager you will be involved in selling print and digital media solutions to both new and existing clients across the UK & Ireland. Excellent communication skills are key, along with an organised approach and (of course) a confident, professional and articulate manner. 

You will be responsible for identifying potential new advertisers in addition to developing core business with existing customers. You will be just as tenacious in securing a quarter-page advert from a small rural teashop as you are negotiating a high-value package with leading advertising agencies and corporate brands. You will demonstrate confidence in your products and in presenting opportunities – you’ll be the sort of person who is excited at the prospect of pitching a £10,000 campaign, and not be afraid to tie down the order. 

If you already have experience in publishing advertising sales, it’s certainly an advantage as some of their most successful Account Managers have come from local newspapers, digital agencies and magazines. Our client provides effective and ongoing training but are not in the habit of teaching grandma to suck eggs, so they fully respect individuals with experience who are happy to hit the ground running. 

So, if you can sell and you’ve feel you have the qualities they are looking for please get in touch!
