ROLE: Commercial Sales Executive
LOCATION: Folkestone, Kent
Package: Up To £20,000 Basic with uncapped commission + Benefits
Sleeping Giant Media is looking for someone to join this ever-growing team of digital marketing GIANTS. If you're a passionate self-starter who’s got a history of selling digital marketing solutions, we want to hear from you.
The Commercial Team is a hard-working and enthusiastic mix of people, all eager to bring the best solutions to new and existing clients, as well as our partners in other agencies. You’ll be supported by the Head of Commercial, and be welcomed into a team-focused department, reliant on high levels of drive and some just really terrible jokes (and a love for Deadpool).
We would like a self-sufficient team player who is energised and raring to go, bringing in engaged businesses alongside current customers and always looking to exceed targets set. An understanding of digital marketing is a must for this role, and preference will be given to those who have been in a sales role within this industry, as we’re looking to get you up and running as soon as possible - an overview of our specific services will be provided.
This is a new business role suited to a hunter mentality. You’ll be responsible for adding to our client network, prospecting new leads through various means, qualifying them, helping to match our services against potential clients’ needs, following the sales process from introduction through to after sales support. We’re not in for the hard-sell, we’re after someone who will provide solutions to businesses and individuals in a consultative manner, always looking for the best fit.
The company itself is currently in its 13th year, and part of that success is through our values - we all have to wear CAPES. That is, we have to be a great Communicator, Accountable, Positive, Effective, and Self-Aware. To celebrate our Giant heroes, we make sure everyone is well taken care of. Our Giants can expect a healthcare cashplan, shopping rewards and discounts, unlimited holiday, and a fair bit more. We want to make our Giants more than just a namesake, so will recognise achievements not only through these benefits, but through serious opportunities for learning and progression. What are you waiting for?
