Entry Level // Sales Department
A varied role which requires juggling numerous tasks while being deadline focused and results driven. A special sales coordinator would need to tackle admin on behalf of the team, running figures and reports comfortably, be proactive and manage relationships both internally and externally. Special sales also offer the opportunity for creativity and seeking new business, so a coordinator would need to keep up with market trends and recognise new opportunities.
Internally, you work with production and creative managers, jacket coordinators and marketing managers. Outside the business, you work with book buyers for small businesses, brand managers and marketing managers.
Previous sales experience can be beneficial but keen administrative skills are essential. You should also research book publishing, brand values and marketing campaigns and trends.
