Graduate Trainee Media Sales - Graduate Sales Opportunities & Trainee Sales
What is media Sales?
ItÆs simple really. Anywhere that you see or hear an advert the chances are that it has been sold by a media sales professional. From the smallest adverts in the classified section of a national newspaper through to a million pound sponsorship of Coronation St there will be teams of media sales people selling and negotiating with clients and advertising agencies. Extensive training is given to all trainees and your first year is one of the most challenging and exciting times of your career. Basic salaries range from ú16-18k with additional commission of ú5-10k.
What skills do you need?
As a graduate fresh out of university it is unlikely that you will have relevant media sales experience. All we can assess therefore is how you sell something close to your heart,æyourselfÆ! If you would describe yourself as tenacious, persuasive, proactive, confident, ambitious and driven by financial reward then you may be the kind of person we are looking for.
