Retail Media – Advertising Sales Representative (Toronto)

About Us

RMG (Retail Media Group) was launched in 2002, with the vision of leveraging the incredible traffic and key demographic delivered by major Canadian grocery and retail chains. The company has evolved into a national media player, growing aggressively, making it one of the Profit 500 fastest growing companies in Canada, for the past four years.

Our Products are unique, new advertising Media Vehicles with no direct competitors. We have been extremely successful across the country, and our target audience is limited only by our imagination. Our clients have included national advertisers, regional advertisers and smaller local players.

We’re looking for a young, dynamic, entrepreneurial Retail sales rep to join our Team.

About You

Do you like to have fun? Are you good at what you do? Do you love the challenge of bringing new ideas to market? Do you want to work independently, responsible for your own success? If not, don’t bother applying for this position. There are plenty of main-line, corporate, safe jobs out there. We’re not looking for safe and stable. We’re looking for a kindred spirit, who wants to fly out there and make it happen. Carpe Diem.

Ideally, you have 3+ years of experience selling Retail advertising in the Toronto market with a focus on local and regional advertisers, some experience with advertising agencies and a broad network of contacts in the advertising industry.  You are self-motivated,  aggressive, creative and independent with a proven sales track record.

You work hard, think on your feet, like to have fun and know how to close.  You’d better, your success depends on it!

About the Job

The position offers a tremendous amount of flexibility and reward.  You manage your own schedule working in a home-based office, and reporting directly to the CEO in Calgary.  You will be currently the only Rep in the entire GTA – a huge opportunity, with no cap, and no territory limitations throughout the GTA!

If you possess the right attitude, experience and work ethic, we look forward to receiving your resume and speaking with you at your earliest convenience. Don’t delay, as we are looking to hire immediately!
