THE ROLE:  You will be tasked with developing sustainable relationships with new and existing clients, as well as sourcing new business leads locally and regionally.

You will be someone who asks questions, and probes for new business with clients who are already engaged, as well as those who are enquiring about advertising opportunities.

Previous experience within advertising isn’t necessarily essential, what’s important is that you are confident, outgoing and interested. If you fit that description and aren’t afraid of talking to people then our client would love to hear from you, and if you’re the right fit, invest in you!
