Apply now

We're looking for a senior sales professional with experience working in the UK Marketing/Ad Agency environment to join us as a Sales Director working with UK agencies to grow sales of our digital advertising, media and sponsorship solutions across a portfolio of 20+ B2B platforms.

We operate B2B brands across digital magazines, websites, events and social channels and have experienced significant growth in recent years, both in terms of audience & client growth. And, we're now looking for a proven B2B sales professional to drive growth from UK agencies and their clients.

This is a senior, front line sales role based at our offices in Moorgate, London dealing with marketing and advertising agencies as well as some PR agencies.

You’ll have a strong sales background and ideally have experience experience selling complex B2B solutions to large, global clients and ideally have knowledge around media marketing solutions that include content, display advertising, sponsorships, events, email and lead generation campaigns. You’ll understand that relevant audiences, engagement metrics and data play a part in making these campaigns a success as well as your professional, persuasive and driven personality.

You’ll be managing existing relationships with agencies but you will be expected to show growth from these whilst developing new agency relationships and business. You'll ideally have an understanding of how UK agencies work and will have had experience talking and presenting to account directors and media buyers/planners.

You’ll also have proven experience identifying and developing new business relationships with target clients at the most senior level, you’ll be well versed using Linked in to help with this and be a confident presenter on screen and face to face. We drive strong incoming enquiry levels through our websites and lead generation campaigns so you’re not entirely on your own developing new business.
