Our team is growing! We’re looking for a Media Sales Executive.

Salary; Up to £25k + £9k OTE + Uncapped Commission + Company Performance Bonus + Incentives 

Benefits; Sales Training course, Free Parking, 28 Days Holiday, Private Healthcare & Employee Benefit Scheme

Contract type; Permanent, Full-time or Part-time & Immediate 

Your Mission; to support the Media Sales Supervisor with regards to new & existing customers. To grow & increase account penetration by effectively selling Local Pages (LP) products and services.

Do you love talking to people? Are you passionate about both start-ups and established local businesses? Enjoy consultative selling where you can add value to our clients through our products & services? Feel like you love to close a deal but don’t want to be branded as an ordinary sales person? This might be the role for you!

We are looking for a Media Sales Executive to join our small but perfectly formed team based in Bristol, to manage and maintain our current customers through exceptional service, whilst also looking for new ones. You’ll work directly with our Media Sales Supervisor and learn the role through a sales training course and by getting hands-on and speaking to our customers.

This is a sales role – we want someone who is able to understand our customers businesses & advertising needs, whether they are in digital or in print, and then build a strategy that overtime will grow the customer’s use of LP’s services. You will be tasked with managing and maintaining the current customers we have, as well as looking for new. 

It is also a creative role. Our working environment provides the opportunity to implement new techniques and make changes. We are looking for someone with innovative ideas, the ability to express them clearly and feel comfortable with feedback. Your ability to positively impact LP will be recognised and valued, that’s the beauty of working in a small team.

And finally, you must be able to plan your time, be proactive in managing your own workload and have strong communication skills.

We are not necessarily looking for previous multi-media sales experience (although this would be an advantage), we are especially interested in your capabilities, attitude and potential to grow into the role, rather than your experience in the industry, as there will be plenty of support and training.

A bit about us…

LP helps local businesses to grow by generating enquiries for them in their local area. Although we have been around for 39 years, we are still a family business with a team of 16 based in Bristol. We predominately work with businesses based in the South-West & South Wales. Business owners make up 90% of our customers, and service businesses are our primary clients. Our roots are in print, and this is still a significant part of what we do, however our customers are requesting other services including website design and digital products, along with a design and print service for logos and promotional material.

Our office is based in Southville, Bristol near the Tobacco Factory, and close to the heart of bustling North Street. This area is well connected to the city centre with plenty of cycle paths and local transport links.

You will get 28 days holiday (including bank holidays). We also have a negotiable benefits package and a strong emphasis on personal and career development with a training budget dedicated to each one of our people.

Local Pages is committed to equal opportunity for all. We may collect relevant data for monitoring as part of our candidate registration process.

Slowing Down

Are you too busy?

We all live incredibly busy lives, often at 100mph without even registering what we’re doing and without being in the moment.  We have jobs, there may be children to take to school and take to activities or parties, we might go to the gym, try and have a social life and then spend quality time with our loved ones. 

There are a few simple things that you can take on board to start to slow down and maybe have time to think about self care – you might be like me and looking after number 1 goes to the bottom of the ‘to-do list’ every single day.

Switching off

If you run your own business, chances are you have your emails synced with your mobile phone meaning that you are ALWAYS connected to work.  You may have a ‘9-5 job’ where you have the same situation.  Try not to reply to work emails out of office hours (i.e. after 6pm).  We need to be able to switch off from work mode in the evenings and weekends allowing my already busy minds to unwind.

Slowing down

After a break from work or you’re normal routine, it’s obviously going to be busy catching up with emails and client work.  For some, a list is the ultimate organisation tool – ploughing through to tick everything off is extremely satisfying! However, we need to remind ourselves that not everything needs to be done right this instant.  Something’s can wait until tomorrow, next week or even next month.

Saying no

This leads on from slowing down. Some weeks our diaries are packed with work appointments, life appointments and social gatherings.  Stop and think about what you are saying yes to and start to say no to every invite or meeting.  We’re not going to miss out.  Busy people often find it difficult to just sit and relax some times, doing nothing.  Work on this, if only for 15 minutes day but it again allows you start to unwind and relax.

None of these points are new and groundbreaking, but essentially we want to keep that chilled holiday mode going for as long as possible!!

I think sometimes we also just need to take a step back and look at how BUSY we’ve become.
