Account Manager

Here at The Guardian, we believe the open exchange of information, ideas and opinions has the power to change the world for the better.

More people than ever before are reading, watching and listening to Guardian journalism from across the world. Over the past year The Guardian achieved record digital traffic with our highest number of regular readers and monthly page views averaging over 1.1 billion.

We’re now on a path to achieve the goal we announced last month of two million people supporting The Guardian by 2022. We hit our highest revenues in a decade and in 2019 achieved the goal we set three years earlier to break even.

That’s where you come in.

We are recruiting for an Account Manager to sell creative advertising solutions across all Guardian platforms to clients in the education sector.

In this role you will -

• Initiate a proactive approach to winning briefs from existing and prospective agencies and clients
• Drive revenue through by understanding the needs of marketers trying to engage with students and young people
• Contribute ideas to drive the strategic direction of the student and youth team

About You

We’re looking for you to have media sales experience and ideally an understanding of the higher education sector.

You’ll also have a strong understanding of the media landscape, as well as a passion for The Guardian brand.

Does this all sound like you? Then we’d love to hear from you!

How to apply

To be considered, please send us your latest CV and a cover letter which outlines why you’d love to join us, and why you’re a great match for what we’re looking for.

The closing date for applications is Monday 13th January 2020.

We value and respect all differences in all people (seen and unseen) at the Guardian. We aspire to inclusive working experiences and an environment that reflects the audience we serve, where our people have equal access to career development opportunities, their voices are heard and can contribute to our future. The Guardian actively encourages applications from BAME candidates.

At the Guardian, many of our staff work flexibly and we will consider all requests for flexible working arrangements.
