Media Sales Manager, Arabian Business
This is an exciting opportunity to relocate to Dubai and work with one of the region's largest media companies!
ITP Media Group reaches an audience of more than 34 million people across the region and beyond through its leading websites, portals, social media platforms, events, conferences, award ceremonies, magazines, books and social media influencers agency. Our portfolio includes major international and regional brands such as Time Out, Arabian Business, Harper’s Bazaar Arabia, Construction Week, Hotelier Middle East and ShortList Dubai.
ITP Business is now looking for a highly effective and determined Media Sales Manager with prior experience selling across regional business magazines or newspapers, to join the team on the iconic Arabian Business brand.
Selling across print, digital, conferences and awards, the successful candidate will champion sales for a range of business products in English and Arabic, manage top client accounts and personally lead the commercial charge on this well respected brand.
Based in our Dubai HQ, you will work with clients to conceptualise and sell integrated advertising and sponsorship packages across multiple platforms, including branded content, product integrations, display solutions and more.
To excel in the role, you will be confident enough to work autonomously in our ambitious environment. You will also take a proactive approach to ensure you grow advertising revenue and consistently hit targets.
The right candidate will display an excellent understanding and experience of multi-platform media sales. Applicants will be successful sales professionals with excellent people skills and a passion for understanding and delivering clients’ needs.
We are looking for someone dynamic and tenacious, someone who likes to work in a multicultural environment. The right fit will be an individual who is accountable and extremely organised; a team player who is capable of combining impressive individual sales with overall group target delivery.
Strong candidates will have up-to-date knowledge of local and international industry related news and at least two years’ prior experience on leading regional business, news or financial titles and newspapers.
Digital sales experience is a plus and you must be able to demonstrate your creative approach toward sales with direct clients.
Based in the tax-free coastal city of Dubai, the role offers successful candidates a strong career development opportunity, a positive and supportive working environment, accompanied by a highly competitive salary and bonus scheme.
Travel throughout the region will be a core part of the job, including trips to Saudi Arabia, so Middle East experience and/or Arabic-language skills would be an advantage.
Only passionate, hungry, ambitious and target-focused applicants need apply with their CV and a cover letter.
