Media Sales recruitment agencies - Sales
Media sales encompasses a wide range of media outlets, including the Internet, TV, radio and the written press. These roles include selling advertising space, subscriptions and media services.
Media sales is a highly specialised sector, and most recruitment agencies and employers are looking for candidates with a working knowledge of the industry they are selling to. Many sales executives in the sector are graduates with degrees in computer technologies, media-related subjects and marketing. However, many people who have worked within digital services, media outlets and the commercial sector can find employment opportunities in sales because of their detailed knowledge.
There are a number of employers looking for sales staff in this sector, including major publishing houses, websites, production companies and national newspapers. Much of the work involves selling to highly educated and knowledgeable specialists in their field, so exceptional communication and presentational skills are always a necessity. Most sales positions involve dealing with clients around the UK - and in some cases Europe - so candidates must be flexible and prepared to spend significant periods away from home.
Basic salaries in this sector range from £20,000 to £40,000, but meeting sales targets gives people the chance to earn significant bonuses and commissions. Experienced sales staff with direct experience in media sales can earn up to £60,000 per year in managerial positions.
