Website BLeadernews Business Leader Magazine

The magazine for business and enterprise

Business Leader is a fast-paced B2B media company that publishes a glossy business magazine, an online news portal and hosts a number of prestigious awards and events. Our readership and audience include busy CEO’s, entrepreneurs, investors and business leaders from all over the UK and further afield.

We’ve worked with some of the UK’s most successful business people, from Richard Branson and Dragons Den stars to business celebrities like Caprice and Michelle Mone OBE.

With significant backing and resources our aim is to be the UK’s top business media, and we’re now recruiting a sales professional who can help us promote our range of print and digital advertising packages, as well as sponsorship opportunities, to clients mainly in London and the South East.

You will be a real self-starter capable of identifying potential customers and creating your own appointments, while having the ability to produce proposals, pitch successfully and win business – mainly within the financial, banking, legal, professional and business service sectors, as well as property and technology.

This is an exciting opportunity for the right person to join a fast-growing, successful business. You’ll be mainly field-based and work on your own initiative, spotting sales opportunities and attending business and networking events so some flexibility will be required outside of normal office hours.

You’ll also work closely with our marketing, editorial and circulation team at our Bristol HQ to raise awareness of Business Leader magazine and events.

Your experience

You will have a minimum of 2 years proven telephone and face-to-face advertising/ sponsorship sales experience in a corporate environment, with great presentation and communication skills, a full UK driver’s license and familiar with CRM systems.

The package

This is a full time role with an attractive salary, open-ended commission with OTE of £40k PA and company car or car allowance is available to the right candidate, as well as list of benefits.

The Company

Business Leader Ltd is a successful, privately owned publishing and media company based just outside Bristol. With a small but highly experienced team the company is part of the Ascot Group, one of the UK’s fastest growing marketing and media groups.
