What is Media Sales?

Media Sales is the selling of advertising space in a media platform - such as in newspapers, magazines, on outdoor billboards or television. Whenever you see an advert, somebody has sold that advertising space to a client on behalf of a media owner.

The Sales Role:

You will be joining the Media Sales team as a Trainee Sales Executive, and your job will be to sell the media space on behalf of the publishing house. Your responsibilities will include:

New business lead sourcing
* Cold calling & sourcing of new clients
* Increasing revenues from existing client base
* Face to face meetings and carrying out of negotiations with clients
* Liaising internally with the editorial and advertorial teams
* Attending consumer shows and conferences as part of company promotion


Although Business-to-Business or over-the-phone sales experience would be beneficial, it is not necessary as one-on-one training is offered. Only apply to this job if you are:

A recent UK University graduate (2014, 2015 2016 Graduate) who attained a 2:2 or higher

Extremely money motivated




Highly eloquent


As well as working in a young and vibrant atmosphere with like-minded people, you will also have other incentives such as:

Drive an executive car

Annual Christmas holiday to Europe for the whole Company

Other company holidays to Ibiza, Croatia and Las Vegas

Prizes such as ipads, weekend trips, spa trips and lunch clubs

Huge earning potential

Fast career progression

Having previous pro-active sales experience would be ideal! What does this mean? If you've work in telesales, if you've cold called, if you've promoted for a night club, if you've worked as a street charity worker, if you've worked handing out flyers on the street or if you've work in any kind of pro-active sales, then I am keen to hear from you no matter what, so send me an email and we can talk -
