Do you fancy working in the fast-moving media sales business for an international publisher of industry-leading food magazines? Our client is the world’s leading provider of information for the international fresh produce sector who are looking for a highly motivated sales executive to join their  team and sell advertising and sponsorships for their leading UK magazine as well as their website and events.

This is a non-stop business where you will have daily interaction with growers, importers, traders, manufacturers, supermarket buyers, and others connected to the vital business of fresh food supply.

The company has recently revamped their websites and news services to bring the most up-to-date information to their many thousands of readers around the world.

Their suite of products includes the full range of print and digital publications, as well as a series of high-profile conferences both in the UK and around the world. You will ideally have experience in a media sales environment, and have the ability to work under pressure to meet key sales targets, and be a good team player. You should be self-motivated and have a passion for selling, both on the phone and in person. Knowledge of the fresh produce or food industry is useful but not essential. In any case the successful candidate is expected to quickly build up a book of contacts, to be confident picking up the phone to speak to clients, and to show their face at conferences and events.

A second language is an advantage due to the international nature of the fresh produce business. In return they can offer a competitive salary and commission structure, ample opportunity for UK and international travel, the chance to be a part of a friendly and lively team, and a convenient office location close to Vauxhall station in London.
