Media sales is an exciting and fast-paced environment. This role is working on our "features & entertainments" section which will involve selling print and digital advertising into our strong brands that include The Ilford Recorder, Barking & Dagenham Post etc - products that reach in excess of 500,000 people.

You will be responsible for driving the features, design ideas, selling advertising space, re-booking adverts and changing or improving campaigns. You will need to be customer-focussed, have great communication skills and have a proven sales background.

From our brand new offices in Barking you will be calling potential and existing customers to sell them the opportunity to advertise alongside forthcoming features such as Christmas, Eid, Mothers Day, Royal Baby and Olympics. You will quickly be able to think of advertisers who would match and fit appropriately with the feature, highlighting the benefits and opportunity this creates for them. It is essential that you are confident in your ability to sell - but perhaps you have never had the opportunity before.

THE IDEAL CANDIDATE WILL:

• Not be afraid to call new businesses
• Build good rapport and relationships over the phone
• Have fantastic, confident communication skills
• Enjoy working to targets
• Thrive in a fast-paced environment
• Be passionate and enthusiastic in character

In return we offer a competitive salary of £16,700 (pro rata), alongside 25 days holiday increasing with service. In addition to this we also provide a pension plan, free life assurance, Archant Academies (development and training), Archant Gold (charity matched funding), a Cycle to Work scheme, Childcare Vouchers, holiday discounts, Best Doctors and Doctors Online (medical advice), EmployeeCare Counselling and Advisory Service, Canada Life Bereavement and Probate Service, Westfield Health Scheme, retirement gift, long service award and Give as You Earn tax-free donations to charity.
