About Us 

We’re Gumtree, the UK’s leading classifieds site. Created by two friends looking to help people like themselves settle in a new city, we began life as an online platform for buying and selling spare things. 

Today, almost two decades on, we’ve grown into a highly-successful site with over 16 million unique visitors every month. Our platform enables people to trade everything, from cars to home items, as well as find jobs, local services, community events and even somewhere to live. 

We’re part of the eBay Classified Group, the world-leader in online classifieds, with 12 brands that span the globe. 

Due to internal promotion, we’re looking for an Advertising Sales Executive to join our talented team in Richmond. 

The Benefits 

- Basic salary of £22,000 - £24,000 per annum 

- Commission (OTE up to £35,000) 

- Progression opportunities 

- Lovely people to work with 

- Free breakfast and snacks every day 

- A sociable, dress down environment where we put our people first 

- Top Performer events and holiday incentives 

- Discounts at local bars, gyms, restaurants and health and beauty salons 

This is an amazing opportunity to take the first steps in your sales career with a fresh-thinking company that’s on a mission to help create a world where people share more and waste less. 

Based in vibrant, modern offices in a great location by the river, you’ll be supported to increase your abilities and learn the ins and outs of what Gumtree offers. This includes access to our sales academy, which will provide you with world-class training and a hands-on learning experience. 

The Role 

As an Advertising Sales Executive, you’ll win new business for one of our four classified verticals: Motors, Property, Jobs and Services.


You’ll play a pivotal role in the Gumtree team, highlighting the benefits of our solutions to customers and then working with them to strategically deliver growth and maximise retention. 

Organisation will be just as important as your people skills, and you’ll need to present a professional front at all times, especially when meeting face-to-face with customers at industry events.

While no experience is required, to join us as an Advertising Sales Executive, you’ll need: 

- A passion for speaking to new people and building relationships

- A highly-organised approach to your work 

- A positive, can-do attitude
