Then keep reading. We may have the job for you.
Five years on and going strong, Time Out Sydney continues to solidify its position as the go-to entertainment guide for Sydneysiders. A job has opened up on our five-person team and we want a self-starter who isn’t afraid of mucking in.
Our ideal candidate would:
• have a minimum of one year of media sales experience
• be capable at both managing existing accounts and winning new business
• be as comfortable selling on the phone as on email and face-to-face
• be an Australian resident or hold a valid visa (sorry, we can't offer sponsorship)
• sport a degree. In something
OK, so we can be flexible on a couple of the above points. What isn't negotiable is a good attitude, a sense of humour, a strong work ethic and a propensity for the Time Out lifestyle. We like folk who practice what they preach – it's easier to sell the brand to advertisers if you live the lifestyle it represents.
To apply, send your CV and a cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "Sydney Job Application".
PS. If your application uses the word "penultimate" or tells us that you have excellent written and oral communication skills, we won't read it.
