Group sales executive - MEA
Location: Dubai
We are searching for a highly qualified sales executive to join our Middle East and Africa (MEA) team in Dubai and help sell our portfolio of products to potential clients in the MEA region.
Reporting to our sales director in Dubai, you will sell products from across the Group (primarily display print, online advertising, event sponsorship and custom research) to advertising agencies and clients through telephone and face-to-face selling. You will be responsible for maintaining good relationships and business with existing advertisers and for developing a new client portfolio to generate new business.
Educated to degree level or equivalent, the successful candidate will need to have a proven sales track record, particularly in closing new international business. You must have the ability to quickly build credibility with an executive-level audience and possess excellent presentation, communication and writing skills. Exposure to selling an "intellectual" service would be advantageous. This position will involve frequent travel.
If you have a sense of urgency, are passionate about what you do, like to be challenged, and enjoy working under pressure to tight deadlines, then The Economist Group could be the place for you!
Please send your CV together with a covering letter by e-mail to: nickmesquita@economist.com using reference "Group sales executive – MEA".
Closing date for applications is September 15th 2009.
