OTE £70k/80k plus options

Prolific North has established itself in just four years as one of the leading media, marketing and creative brands in the UK.

With our feet firmly planted in the North, the Prolific information hub and associated events and expos are viewed with affection and trust by our readers, partners and over one thousand companies, agencies, brands and organisations with whom we have engaged.

Whether it’s filling vacancies, recognition through awards and unique events, networking at exhibitions or original research, Prolific delivers response.

Newsletter subscribers and traffic to the site have risen consistently year on year with 2016 online users up by more than 20%. There is a new website for Prolific North in the pipeline for spring and we anticipate reaching 100,000 unique visitors a month during 2017.

Prolific hosts several acclaimed awards events, straddling marketing and digital to eCommerce to Higher Education and the Prolific North Awards is the largest regional creative industries award event in the UK.

In February 2016 we staged the biggest gathering of media, marketing and digital folk outside London at the inaugural Prolific North Live with over 2,200 attendees. The expo returns in February 2017 and will be almost three times the size and over two days (15/16 Feb) at EventCity. We have also created the first eCommerce Show North, which will be staged at EventCity on 11 and 12 October 2017. eCSN has already attracted a headline sponsor and four Event Partners along with a fast-growing list of national and regional eCommerce focused companies.

Managing Director designate

We now seek a person to join us whose prime function will initially be to sell, lead and develop the company’s growing sales operations. He/she will be completely comfortable working closely with the editorial team and also with third party partners delivering several of our services.

Working alongside the publisher, the person we appoint will be joining in the expectation that he or she will quickly be able to take over and lead the company into our next phase of development, straddling digital platforms and traditional face-to-face events and ensure that we not only enhance current revenue streams and activities but also identify and develop new ones.

The successful person is likely to have experience working in publishing, media or events/exhibitions in a role with demonstrable commercial responsibilities and a track record of success. You will also have a keen knowledge and understanding of digital platforms and traditional B2B engagement.

A generous basic salary is offered which alongside the bonus package would realistically amount to £70k to £80k plus and for someone with the particular drive and desire to succeed, that remuneration could be comfortably more over the next two to three years.

A share option scheme could be available for the right candidate.

The position will be based at our office in central Manchester but regular travel across the North and to London will be required.
