Account Manager

Calling all media sales professionals: we have a fantastic new Account Manager role with a leading publisher of academic journals! Based in either London or Heidelberg (Germany) and working from the office 2-3 days a week, this role will look after advertising sales revenue across the full range of journals.

The Account Manager will sit at the heart of a vibrant global sales team, and be responsible for:

  • Selling display advertising and other products within the portfolio across print and online publications
  • Managing allocated key clients, developing strong market knowledge and gathering insights on business strategy and structure
  • Building long term business relationships within the assigned territory via sales calls and client visits
  • Working closely with other commercial departments within the company
  • Attending events, industry conferences and exhibitions

This is a proactive sales role, and it will suit someone with strong interpersonal skills and ideally some experience selling digital advertising or sponsorship solutions. Some knowledge of academic/STM publishing is highly desirable, though not essential, and knowledge of another European language is also an advantage.

For a full description of the role, please send your CV with a brief paragraph outlining your relevant skills.

Closing Date: Early applications may be prioritised.
