Media Agency Sales Executive, Heraldscotland.com & s1 Network
Our websites, Heraldscotland.com, Eveningtimes.co.uk and the s1 network, reach over 1.5M adults and generate almost 30M page views every month - and the number is growing. With around 80%* of those users resident in Scotland, we provide the largest online platform in Scotland for advertisers aiming to target Scottish online consumers.
Now, as part of our investment in developing our entire ‘news’ site network and properly harnessing our rapidly growing user and members databases, we need an experienced and talented online media sales professional to help drive display and promotional advertising sales revenue. Not to mention the development of new commercially-led ideas to further develop our unique online news and content proposition for advertisers. You will be dealing advertising agencies and their key clients across Scotland.
This is a huge opportunity for a successful, creative media sales professional looking for an opportunity to develop themselves in a key role with a market leading media organisation.
To succeed, you’ll need to be able to demonstrate proven success in developing innovative new advertising sales solutions for media agency clients and have a strong knowledge of the general and online advertising marketplace in Scotland. The ability to show a good understanding of the latest online advert delivery and audience targeting technologies would also be distinct advantage, but not essential.
Most importantly, you should be ambitious, able to develop and drive ideas, positively influence colleagues, generate new sales contacts and sell effectively to clients and achieve revenue targets. You should also have a real desire to be at the front of the new digital advertising marketplace in Scotland, rather than just ‘one of the pack’.
If you can demonstrate all of the above and feel this role is right for you, we’ll reward you with an attractive basic salary based on your level of experience, a car and benefits package including an excellent uncapped bonus scheme just to help keep you hungry!

If you don’t have any relevant advertising or online sales experience, then you are highly unlikely to be considered for this role.
We're Scotland's leading digital media business. We're based in Glasgow with offices in Aberdeen and London and our success is down to the talented people who make up our team of developers, marketers and sales executives.
We enjoy the advantages of being able to take decisions locally and move quickly while at the same time being part of Newsquest, one of the UK's biggest newspaper and digital publishers.
You obviously already know a bit about us since you're using one of our sites right now, but we also have websites in the property and cars sectors, as well as a range of local community websites spread across Scotland.
If you're ambitious, talented and don't like settling for 2nd best then you would probably fit right in.
