Business development manager/recruitment £40k OTE (uncapped)

Prolific North

Apply for this job

Contract Type:

Prolific North has established itself as the best-read and most engaged publication – on or offline – addressing the interests and needs of creative industries, marketing and media folk in the North of England.

Our growing range of quality events, research listings, features and new initiatives, are eagerly picked up and actively followed by over 54,000 unique visitors a month, 31,000 plus Twitter followers (across our three twitter accounts) and over 19,300 subscribers to our newsletter.

A key source of revenue is job advertising and since we began publishing in 2013, we have established the site and its jobs pages as the first place for many companies and organisations in the North when it comes to seeking new staff.

Job advertisers range from corporates such as and the Co-op to Everton FC; public sector bodies covering higher education, transport, housing associations and local authorities through to the BBC, production companies and literally hundreds of agencies and companies offering content and marketing services across the North of England.

The majority of these job ads are incoming enquiries rather than us proactively seeking job advertisers and we now wish to appoint a dedicated full time sales person to actively sell and build the jobs offer to its full potential.

Prolific North is an independent company which enjoys the goodwill and respect of tens of thousands of marketing and media professionals across the North. We are situated in a fabulous office in Manchester’s Northern Quarter.

This is a rare opportunity for an outgoing and self-motivated individual to lead and shape our enhanced jobs platform/offer. As the role develops, there may be scope for additional sales people to be brought on in a support capacity. The ideal candidate will have experience or good knowledge of the recruitment and agency market and will have experience of building and developing social media accounts.

The basic salary is between £23k to £28k and the OTE package is a realistic £40k but is uncapped and could be considerably more in the hands of an exceptional performer.
