About the role

Are you looking to start your career in media sales? Or are you already a Sales Executive looking for your next challenge? A rare and exciting opportunity has arisen for a Sales / Senior Sales Executive to come and join our recruitment sales division.

Reporting into the Sales Manager, you will work across our leading HBM portfolio.

This is an exciting role selling job listings and packages to direct clients across multiple sectors. Your ultimate goal will be to drive and increase the volume of direct client advertisers onto our jobsites. You will also be cross selling where relevant onto Haymarket’s sister sites such as Third Sector.

The day-to-day

Your role will typically involve:

  • Maximising revenue opportunities by generating new business from your own client base, as well as growing existing accounts
  • Telephone, email and face-to-face meeting with clients
  • Demonstrating to decision makers that our job boards can provide them with the most relevant candidates
  • Influencing your clients that we are the best place to fill their vacancies

Key skills

The skills and qualities we’re looking for a Sales / Senior Sales Executive to bring to us include:

  • Goal-driven
  • Ability to work to tight deadlines
  • Evidence of meeting KPIs and exceeding revenue targets
  • Excellent sales, communication and presentation skills
  • Highly self-motivated, driven and organised
  • Evidence of building strong working relationships
  • A passion for the media and advertising industry
  • Competence in CRM systems and excellent IT skills
  • Be passionate and eager to succeed 
  • Ideally, previous experience working in a media sales environment

Relevant experience

For the Senior Sales Executive role you will ideally already be a Sales Executive with firsthand experience of working in the media industry and ready to take the next step in your career. The Sales Executive position is an entry-level role, however, you will ideally have some previous experience of working in a media sales environment.


We are offering a competitive salary that is in line with your experience. You will also earn uncapped commission, so the sky’s the limit when it comes to your potential earnings.


Typical working hours are 9:00am - 5:00pm. However, you may be expected to work longer hours during busy times, travel to meet clients and occasionally attend networking events in the evening.

We offer excellent training and career progression opportunities both within the team and across other divisions at Haymarket. Your next steps may include more senior roles such as:

  • Account Manager
  • Business Development Manager
  • Account Director
  • Sales Manager

Our working culture

Our team culture is friendly, vibrant and sociable. We have just as much fun after hours, too - be it drinks with colleagues, awards ceremonies, sports teams, or our infamous annual Haymarket Awards. There is a relaxed vibe in our offices and we give you the tools to work flexibly, move around our environment freely and collaborate with your colleagues.

Other benefits include:

  • Competitive salary and uncapped commission scheme
  • Comprehensive training and career development programme
