Vacancies: Sales development representative

Are you a graduate, driven by success? Are you an excellent communicator, with the ability to convince others? Do you have a passion for current affairs? If so, Senate Media could be the place for you.

We are seeking a driven sales development representative, who is able to have high-level conversations with key organisations in order to establish their digital goals and needs. No two calls will be the same, so you must be able to think on your feet and enjoy challenging conversations.

Reporting to the head of business development you will be responsible for identifying and contacting (over the phone and email) relevant decision makers at trade associations, charities, research bodies and companies with a view to setting up sales appointments for the business development team.

Although this is not a revenue generation sales role, you will be incentivized with an attractive commission/bonus scheme based on the number and quality of meetings you book.

We envisage that the right candidate would progress on to become a business development executive, so this would suit an ambitious graduate, ideally with some sales experience, who is looking to build their career with a small, agile and fun production company.

To make the very best of this opportunity, you need to bring raw, possibly unproven, sales talent plus enthusiasm, tenacity, a strong work ethic and an interest in current affairs. If you do, we will provide the opportunity, training and support for you to succeed and grow.

Skills, knowledge and experience

A 2:1 degree or higher in any discipline
Strong literacy and numeracy skills
Excellent written and verbal communication skills
Self-motivated, self-assured and a strong desire to succeed

Previous sales experience
An interest in politics and current affairs



22 days holiday
Contributory pension
In-house training


Competitive basic, with on target earnings of £30,000 to £32,000
