About SoPublishing

SoGlos is the flagship brand of SoPublishing – an innovative, ambitious and completely independent media company, launched with a mission to reinvent digital regional media.

Established in 2007 by two pioneering journalists, SoPublishing has grown to a dynamic team of experts in media, marketing, advertising, design and videography – with offices on Imperial Square in Cheltenham.

We are fiercely passionate about Gloucestershire, fanatical about quality and have ambitious plans for future growth – and we’re a fun bunch of people to work with too.

About the role

• Driving advertising revenue through SoGlos’s new business section, securing high value, long-term advertising contracts.

• Forging relationships with key business, spanning sectors including technology, IT, legal, financial, manufacturing, property and construction – from dynamic start-ups to Gloucestershire’s top 100 firms.

• Sourcing leads through a range of channels, taking charge of your own diary and virtual/field sales appointments, identifying clients’ needs and confidently communicating the proven benefits of advertising with SoGlos.

• Devising creative client campaign ideas incorporating our suite of services – display advertising, content marketing, video and social media support – negotiating and winning contracts, managing and growing your accounts on an ongoing basis.

About you

• Career-driven, motivated individual with extensive experience and success working in a fast-paced B2B new business field sales environment.

• Track record of pitching to senior management, selling over the phone, presenting face-to-face and attending networking events, and overcoming objections.

• Charismatic and pro-active self-starter who enjoys working on your own initiative; outgoing, personable and unwaveringly positive.

• Highly-organised with exceptional attention to detail, and while we’re not looking for techie geeks necessarily, you will be a regular web user who knows Facebook from Instagram!

• An avid interest in Gloucestershire is essential.

• Above all else, you are a driven individual, passionate about your career and someone who gets a real buzz from hunting for sales and achieving results, whilst thriving under the pressure of a target-driven environment.

Salary, commission and perks

This is a full-time, permanent role. Part-time will also be considered for the right candidate.

• Starting salary from £30,000, dependent on experience.

• Achievable monthly commission structure and uncapped on-target earnings of £50,000+ per annum.

• In-house training and personal performance reviews.

• Full 28 days paid holiday – with an additional day’s holiday for every year with the company.

• Flexible working hours and option to work from home each week.

• Your birthday off – but the cakes are on you!

• Regular team get-togethers.

• The chance to work with a fantastic team in our prestigious town centre HQ.

• Not forgetting, free fruit!
