Graduate Sales Executive
A unique opportunity has arisen for a junior sales, telesales or graduate to join our sales team in a fast paced, dynamic industry.
Following major investment, we're planning to relaunch a brand-new site in early 2018. This has created the need for a Sales Executive to join our young, successful sales team to grow new revenue via online advertising campaigns with local businesses.
My client provides comprehensive, up-to-date guides, services and information across over 50 countries to help users find the information they need
The Central sales team, based in some beautiful offices on the outskirts of Oxfordshire, sell advertising across the sites to any business that is a target market.
There is a real entrepreneurial culture in the noisy offices, and everyone is committed to fast sales growth.

Excellent training will be provided throughout and, for the right people, there are real opportunities to grow with the company.
