Senior Sales Manager
WHO WE ARE AND WHY WE NEED YOU:
Michael O’Mara is an award winning family-run independent Publisher, which was shortlisted for Independent Publisher of the Year for The British Book Industry Awards 2016. The company was set up thirty-two years ago and now, with a backlist of over a thousand titles, it is still a family firm, producing bestsellers and one hundred and fifty new books a year.
As Senior Sales Manager your role will be to manage a wide variety of UK trade accounts from high street booksellers and wholesalers, to mass market and discount retailers. Reporting directly to the UK & Export Sales Director, you will be highly motivated and target driven, with the ability to spot and create sales opportunities. Working as part of a professional and lively sales, publicity and marketing team, you will be expected to contribute fully to ideas and strategies to grow sales.
The ideal candidate will have at least two years UK sales experience as a key account manager, with excellent communication skills and be highly motivated. Strong organizational skills are a must as is the ability to work independently and as part of a team. Previous experience of managing at least one of the major Supermarket accounts would be preferable but is not essential.
A FINAL WORD:
Succeeding as an independent in a publishing world dominated by vast, multinational conglomerates is not easy but it is fun. And this ethos, along with huge drive, is at the centre of what you will communicate in your role as Senior Sales Manager. If you feel this is the role for you we would love to hear from you.
Closing date: Thursday 5th October, 5.30 pm (GMT)
