Your Mission; to work alongside the Media Sales Team 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? If you want to progress your career in Media Sales, this might be the role for you!
We are looking to fill a Media Sales position in our small but perfectly formed team based in Bristol. 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 can understand our customer’s businesses & advertising needs, whether they are in digital or in print, and then build a strategy that over time will grow the customer’s use of LP’s services. Developing an ongoing sales pipeline using existing clients, prospects, leads or referrals will be necessary. Your role will include 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 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 40 years, we are still a family business with a team of 16 based in Bristol. We predominately work with companies 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.
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.
