Business Development Manager – Sport Content

£35,000 Base + uncapped commission+ corporate benefits

Company Profile

A rare opportunity has arisen for a talented senior sales executive to work for a leading national news agency for the UK and Ireland and a leading multimedia content provider across web, mobile, broadcast and print. For the last 145 years our client has been providing fast, accurate news and information to publishers. The phrase “content is king” has never been more apt and there is a growing demand for high quality feeds of text, data, photos and video. Today the business is increasingly centred on the delivery of complete products for digital, print and broadcast clients with a particular focus on news, sport and entertainment.

The role

Working on either the Sports or media and entertainment desk this role is focused on Content sales across an allocated list of existing customers with responsibility for account growth and for identifying, canvassing and bringing on board customers who have not previously subscribed to the company’s services or content. There are two key vacancies, working in either the digital media/entertainment or sport teams. Each team currently consists of 2/3 experienced account managers reporting to the sales manager. Account managers typically have responsibility for high-value accounts dealing with all aspects of a customer’s relationship. Account managers therefore require the credibility both to present at a senior level to customers but also to engage with senior executives within the business on what are sometimes key strategic relationships for the business.

Key requirements

A strong interest and knowledge of sport is key together with at least 3 years in a business development sales role. A proven track record of securing high revenue figures on a consistent basis is critical.

First class communication skills, both oral and written, allied with a confident, resilient personality with a methodical approach to tasks, a quick grasp of – and keen eye for – detail and the ambition to succeed at whatever they undertake.
