The Rotherham Advertiser has served this area for almost 160 years and we believe we play an important role in making sure its voice is heard loud and proud.

Each week we sell more than 20,000 copies of the Advertiser, which is read by 50,000 people. We reach more than 100,000 people online, print more than 50,000 copies of our free papers, the Record and the Dearne Valley Weekender and 10,000 copies of our glossy lifestyle magazine Chase.

The power of the press across this borough is still significant. Newspapers across the country are showing double figure percentage year-on-year sales declines, but at the Advertiser we are maintaining our sales figure and more than doubling our digital readership.

What we do need you to do is help us persuade businesses and organisations in Rotherham that we are the go-to platform for them to advertise their services.

We need to win over advertisers and they need customers, which is where we can help each other.

Imagine what a positive message contained within an advertisement in our products could do.

It can help customers, which in turn helps invigorate the local economy, which creates jobs and also enables us to continue to provide a platform for the advertiser, other businesses in the area and the community in general to make sure its voice continues to be heard.

Ideally you will have:

Experience in media field sales.

Good sales techniques wile being confident and creative.

Ability to work as part of a sales team but also be confident with customers on a one to one basis.
