About the job Client Lead - Media Soution
We are partnering with Musgrave Group as they look to hire a new media sales lead into their new media solutions team. They need someone who can build relationships with brands, come up with bespoke solutions and create campaigns that leverage their vast media estate of data, online, in-store and OOH.
This is a role for someone with 3-ish years experience working in a media sales role or in a retail/ FMCG sales environment. It's not a senior position, more like an account executive or client services executive level. Everyone says "self starter needed", but this is the case here. It is a new team, it operates as its own business, and it is going to grow. So, if you can help them to do that through solution selling and relationship development then get in touch, this will be a career maker for the right person in my opinion. If you are the right fit we welcome the opportunity to discuss it with you in more detail.
