An exciting sales opportunity has come up in a leading Children's book publisher, based in South West London. The client is looking for an efficient and enthusiastic Group Export Sales Executive for their busy Export team, reporting to the Group Export Sales Director.
The successful candidate will work closely with the Group Export Sales Director across territories including Southern / Eastern Europe, Latin America and Asia. Key responsibilities will include: agreeing sales targets and working to achieve these; developing relationships with existing customers; market research in order to develop new business, and explore new sales opportunities; devise strategies for individual markets; liaise with customers on any promotions or special packages; meeting customers at book fairs and in territory; negotiating discounts and creating and submitting sales reports.
