The Company

Information is a vital tool helping Director's and CEO's make the best decisions. Our exciting new London based client provides an extensive range of premium business information products that support these high level directors by placing up-to-date industry information at their fingertips.

Their clients include Kellogg's, Mars, Kerry's Ingredients, Revlon and Estée Lauder and cover a range of sectors from Food to Telecoms, Health & Beauty to Public Sector.

This is an exciting and vibrant place to work in Central London (the closest Tube Stations are Temple and Blackfriars) and you'll be working for a successful business that regularly grows and trains graduates into outstanding Sales Executives and world-class professionals.

The Role

Learning the ropes as a Sales Executive will be in an office based role.

You will be supported and trained to become an excellent sales professional by your mentor and through structured training.

Within 9 months you will be ready for your next step and you'll be given more responsibility. Ultimately you will be expected to become a Senior Sales Executive within 2 years. You'll then have the opportunity to mentor a Sales Executive who will arrange appointments for you.

A successful Sales Executive hitting target will earn £30,000 in their first year, £40,000 in year 2, and £45,000 - £60,000 as a Senior Sales Executive.

This is a role and a company that offers training and mentoring, recognition, financial rewards and the opportunity to provide world-class products to Director level contacts.
