The Company

A small entrepreneurial media company who around 3 years ago acquired a portfolio of legacy b2b/b2c brands within the travel sector, specifically serving the specialist cruise market. They continue to work hard to evolve and strengthen the editorial offering, improve the digital proposition, build a compelling data offering and both improve and launch a number of events (awards, expos). They are also in the process of exploring the purchase of other brands.

They are looking for a Business Development Manager / Senior Account Manager to join the business and play a key part in their next stage of growth.

The Role of Business Development Manager / Senior Account Manager (marketing solutions)

As Business Development Manager / Senior Account Manager for the marketing solutions team you will utilise your strong questioning and negotiation skills to win new business and maximise advertising and sponsorship revenues across a portfolio of b2b/b2c travel publications/websites and events.

You will play a key part in understanding what clients within the cruise sector want from a media business and will then help the company to make those commercial opportunities a reality.

You will primarily be selling to companies who target the b2b cruise industry so that mainly consists of cruise lines, travel companies, tourist boards, hotels and technology companies (with a travel focus). This is a truly exciting time to join this ambitious and capable organisation. They have big plans for development and are now looking for experienced and consultative sales people to play a key role in that journey, with some big rewards on offer in the future (like share options). Commission is also very high and uncapped.

They are a small business and therefore you will be a team player and someone who is excited at the prospect of playing a key role in the company's growth.
