Job description

As the UK's No.1 Educational Publisher, CGP sells close to 12 million educational books and products each year and right now our Sales & Marketing department is busier than ever. With our biggest-ever number of launch campaigns, exciting retail growth plans, plus shows and exhibitions back on, we're looking for a new recruit to help us keep the momentum going!

So what will the role involve? As a Sales & Marketing Executive, you could:

  • Manage product launches - including product naming, branding and metadata optimisation, pricing, campaign planning and sales forecasts
  • Devise campaign activities to grow sales of existing ranges - to all customer types including bookshops, online retailers and school accounts
  • Work with in-house design and copywriting teams to plan and create exceptional marketing materials and content (print, internal and external web, and email)
  • Take responsibility for targeted sales growth projects in a variety of sales channels
  • Organise and run exhibitions, attend education or trade shows, and meet with key retail account holders
For the right person there will be scope, in time, to plan and run commercial projects, and to take responsibility for your own sales channel or specific retail accounts.

What we are looking for

  • A graduate with a degree from a top university, you'll (ideally) have some marketing experience already.
  • Flexible and positive, you'll enjoy working with people at all levels.
  • Commercially driven - able to identify opportunities and offer great ideas to help our sales grow
  • A confident communicator with colleagues within the company and important external contacts
  • Excellent with numbers and comfortable analysing data
  • Creative with a critical eye to know what looks good
  • Highly organised, with the ability to juggle several projects at once and manage your own time
  • A self-starter who's able to take the initiative and solve problems independently
  • Self-aware - happy to listen to other people's views and take feedback positively
