Media Consultant

Zest Media is looking for outstanding individuals to help us take Absolutely Magazines to the next level.

Please take a look at the details below. Current vacancies are based across titles covering Hertfordshire, Sussex, London and Surrey.

Zest Media offers you the chance to join the fastest growing publication portfolio in the UK – Absolutely Magazines. Operating as a niche boutique publishing house in the Luxury Lifestyle realm for the last 13 years, the brand has almost trebled in size since the start of 2021 and we are looking for the right candidate to join our print & publication team, as we look to grow into the future

Our brand is of the highest calibre in the Luxury Lifestyle market, targeting AB1 High Net Worth individuals and Households with quality, hyper local editorial and exceptional client partnerships with brands such as Rolex, Carpe Diem, Smeg, Patek, Poggenpohl, Bupa Private Client, Valentino and many more, across multiple industries

We encourage an initiative based work environment, encouraging entrepreneurialism and ideas from across the team, to challenge ourselves and see where we can grow in areas not already thought of or explored

The ideal individual will need to be incredibly self motivated, and ambitious; the role is based from home / remote, but moulded in a way that one would run their own business – completely different to other publishing sales roles currently open to the market. We operate with a trust in our team to hit targets and contribute with considered ways to develop our current product range

Of course, the standard responsibilities still exist, but combined with slightly more interesting ones:

  • Achieve Sales Targets
  • Operate within given yield perimeters
  • Take ownership of the specific region and title – coming up with new business development ideas, feature opportunities and supplement specials
  • Contributing to the layout of the publication – from a flow and sector perspective
  • Performing strong analysis of local competition and staying ahead of the curve with competing clients
  • Making use of our digital agency arm to convert lapsed print clients into new business digital clients
  • Drive new business growth through canvassing local brands, but keeping a finger on the pulse of potential national brand activity as well
  • Working with various teams across the business to ensure a smooth monthly process on the way to deadline and publication construction
  • Identify branding opportunities at agency level 
  • Dominance of the hyperlocal territory – both from a business and event perspective
  • Performing as an organised and presentable ambassador for our well-established brand
  • Attendance of shows, events, client invitationals and exhibitions where necessary
  • Staying on top of industry trends and developments
  • Working closely with team members from other regions to identify cross sale opportunities, attrition and business pollination
  • Working to editorial, artwork and press deadlines in a professional and timely manner
  • Keeping the wider team up to date on your own local area developments and publication progress, to both inspire and encourage work process and ideas
  • Act as a role model to the wider team, and the business as a whole

This is a truly unique opportunity to join a hard working, successful and ambitious team that operates in a warm and nurturing environment. We can’t wait to hear from you
