ADVERTISING SALES REPRESENTATIVE

 

Independent, proudly local, Alberta Views magazine explores topics of public interest, shared social concerns and Alberta’s unique culture and identity.  We are an indispensable source of information for intelligent, engaged Albertans and are truly valued by advertisers as a vehicle to reach these readers.

 

We are looking for an Advertising Sales Rep to join our small but dedicated staff.  This is a full-time position based in our Calgary office.  As the only advertising sales rep on our team, you would be responsible for managing relationships with our existing advertisers, meeting revenue targets for each of our ten issues, and growing our advertiser base.

 

The perfect candidate will have at least three years experience and a proven track record selling advertising in a print publication environment, ideally within the magazine industry.  You have worked with individual client advertisers and are also knowledgeable about and comfortable presenting to advertising agencies.  You are university educated, intelligent, thoughtful and have an appreciation for and understanding of Alberta’s unique political, social, economic and cultural environment.  You should truly understand our value to advertisers and be able to passionately and sincerely share this value with them.

 

It’s a given that you are also highly organized, have excellent communication skills (written and verbal), solid computer skills (Word, Excel, Outlook), and work effectively both independently and as part of a team.  You are also comfortable following existing processes and routines, but capable of suggesting improvements.  Experience with a CRM software solution is a definite asset.

 

This is not a high-power consumer magazine sales environment.  It is an opportunity to contribute to the sustainability of an important local publication and to work with a great team in a stable and rewarding environment.

 

Remuneration package is a base salary, plus commission and health benefits.

 

Please apply with cover letter and resume to bethe@albertaviews.ca

 

Deadline for applications is July 27.
