The Daily Mail newspaper are looking for a bright 2.1. grad for their advertising department.
The role involves working within a motivated, busy team, responsible for planning, editing and managing the adverts of the major UK brands across the newspaper and website.
In simplistic terms, it's a bit like a jigsaw, imagine the pages of a typical newspaper, editorial surrounded by advertisements, it will be the responsibility of your team, to, work out which adverts work best with which news story.
This is a pro-active role rather re-active. You will be trained (2 week course) on the demographic of your newspaper, so you have a full understanding of which adverts will appeal to your readers, you will then be responsible for contacting and presenting the newspaper to the clients or the advertising agencies that represent the client. This will involve telesales, account management and Powerpoint.
Once the client is 'on-board' there will be continual contact/Account Management to ensure they are happy, getting the response they want from the advert, a good return on their investment. Advertising deals will be re-negotiated throughout the year and likely scenario's involve extending adverts to the newspapers website.

Taking the above into account, we need a grad who can multi task. The ideal applicant would have done well at Uni and been involved in extra curricular activities such as Duke of Edinburgh Award, sports, raising money for charity, we need someone ambitious, but also a solid team player
