Job Description

Interview Date: April

Start Date: June

Salary: £31,000 base salary, £57,000 OTE - plus uncapped commission

  • Do you want to work for an entrepreneurial, international company?
  • Are you curious about starting a career in consultative sales with the opportunity to develop your leadership qualities?
  • Are you passionate about technology and media, and how they can help organisations today?
  • Do you have a university degree and at least one year of experience working in a professional environment (sales or account management)?
  • Do you have exceptional communication skills and are you super ambitious with a hunger for success?

If your answer is yes to all of the above then we have the perfect opportunity for you! We are currently looking for ambitious professionals to join our growing sales and leadership program in London - with the opportunity to transfer internationally!

What is the role?

Our clients typically operate within the Marketing, Public Relations, and Communications departments. You'll work directly with decision-makers, in all industries, consulting on their media solutions. Meltwater isn’t a service that is used by just one industry, so you will get exposure to companies and organizations of all shapes and sizes, helping you expand your business acumen all the time. You will be responsible for the entire sales process, from prospecting to product demonstrations, to bringing clients onboard yourself – getting all of the credit for your hard work!

You will:

  • Work in a team environment to drive Meltwater's revenue growth through consultative sales within the UK and Irish portfolio.
  • Consult with companies on how they use news and social media data to inform strategy and decision making.
  • Work towards a monthly sales revenue target, with the ability to earn unlimited commissions.
  • Liaise closely with a mentor to ensure you are continuously developing your sales and leadership skills.

In addition:

  • You will see a rapid career progression! Successful consultants who have delivered excellent sales and leadership results will assume responsibility for a team of their own as a Sales Manager.
  • Meltwater then offers its top managers the opportunity to run a business unit as a Managing Director. This opportunity can take place anywhere in the world, giving the Director the chance to move internationally depending on their experience and preference.
  • If people management isn't your long term goal, then Meltwater also offers its top sellers the chance to move into an Account Executive role, before the opportunity to move into a Global Enterprise role.

What’s in it for you?

  • Thorough training and continual coaching and development.
  • Ability to develop valuable skills such as critical thinking, communication, negotiation, business acumen… The list goes on!
  • Opportunity for rapid career progression - we only promote from within!
  • Opportunity to transfer your career internationally.

And what about the extra stuff?

  • Great pension scheme
  • Cashback health plan
  • Private Health Insurance for management
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • Meltwater Family Leave program
  • 20-25 working days of holiday per year
  • Plenty of team events, meals and activities!
  • Lots of office snacks!

Skills & Requirements

Is this you?

  • University degree (any discipline), 2:1 or above
  • 1-2 years experience working in a professional environment - bonus points for a background in sales or marketing
  • Demonstration of interests outside of work and study (travel, exchange, sport, volunteering etc.)
  • Keen interest in news, current affairs and social media
  • Exceptional communication and interpersonal skills
  • Eligibility to legally work in the UK and Ireland
