This is no ordinary role. If you see yourself as extraordinary, a visionary senior sales leader with a true multimedia background, highly experienced in solution-based selling across multiple stakeholders and you’re a dab hand when it comes to full budget management and extensive executive level relationship management, line this role up to be the next step in your career. 

We’re looking for someone who has a presence in the Whanganui community and has the knowledge to lead a sales team in the local market.

You will lead the Sales team in your remit and deliver revenue targets for NZME.  Implementation of the company sales strategy across print, radio, digital and CreateMe channels will help you achieve your goals. You’ll develop, coach and motivate Sales Managers and their teams to achieve their revenue objectives, ensuring customer satisfaction and profitability in the market are maximised and lead the day-to-day business in the territory.  And most importantly cultivate a winning culture across all direct and indirect reporting areas within the region. 

What’s in it for you? An organisation who value employees as their biggest asset; encouraging growth, development and succession, fostering an environment where people are enabled and encouraged to achieve their career goals in line with our strategic imperatives. We are protective of our culture; we tell it like it is, challenge the status quo, back ourselves all the way and we aren’t afraid to muck in where needed.  

If you’re as excited as we are about being a part of the future of media in NZ, and tick all the boxes we’ve outlined so far, don’t delay as this opportunity doesn’t come along every day. Apply now with CV and cover letter, selling us on why you should shot to the top of the shortlist. 

Applicants must have eligibility to work in New Zealand.
