Kensington Publications, the reference and guidebook specialist, is
looking to take on at least 30 sales staff as it gears up for a move
into new media.
Following its recent merger with S&W Publications, Kensington now
employs 64 ad sales staff selling across 59 titles. These include The
Commonwealth Ministers Reference Book, The MCC Cricket Yearbook and
Looking Good, a women’s beauty title distributed to National Approved
George Constantinou, sales director, said: ’Because a lot of our titles
only come out once or twice a year, we have decided that cover-mounted
CD-roms, with links to websites, will allow our readers to access much
more up-to-date information.
’This obviously means a lot more space for ad sales, and we’re looking
to recruit at least 30 sales people over the next couple of months.’
Kensington is owned by IIR, the world’s largest conference organisation.
