Job Type: Full-Time

Job Description:

This a pending professional opportunity that handles a wide array of duties that serve and support our team of radio and digital advertising account executives in their selling efforts. It may be handled by one full-time employee though consideration may also be given to hiring two part-time employees.

 Duties of the Sales Assistant portion of this job include but are not limited to:

 Creating advertising contract schedules

  • Working heavily with Excel spreadsheets
  • Preparing and/or contributing to PowerPoint sales presentations, proposals and media kits
  • Coordinating campaign details with all entities and departments impacted

 More specifically, the sales assistant aspect of this position takes the concepts and packages sold by the advertising account executives and clearly organizes them via the appropriate paperwork, which is then distributed to the advertisement scheduling ("traffic") department which is charged with "making the concepts happen." 

 Our sales executives are among the best in their businesses. As a result, our selling environment is extremely fast-paced. The Sales Assistant must be able to quickly understand each client’s campaign objectives and what their account executives need to achieve with each client, and provide the appropriate support accurately and in a timely manner.

 In the course of daily action, the sales assistant must be able to accurately handle the details of contracts, insertion orders, production and promotion orders and other forms, while demonstrating an ability to multi-task and re-prioritize throughout the day. Though an entry level position, this isn't for the faint of heart.  Deadlines continually loom with last minute work often bumping up against those deadlines.  Any missing details or work parts often have to be located, and thus, there is a demanding need for detailed organization. 

 Additionally, receptionist telephone duties and interaction with the public will be required. Other administrative duties or tasks may be assigned as necessary.

 This job requires:

  • Proficiency with Excel and PowerPoint
  • A serving and positive attitude
  • Knowledge of Wide Orbit traffic software is highly beneficial
  • Excellent written and verbal communications skills
  • An ability to work on short notice with fast approaching deadlines
  • An ability to multi-task, yet stay focused in an environment conducive to interruptions
  • High School Diploma or equivalent a must. BA or BS desired.
  • Reliable transportation to and from our Nashville airport area office is also required.
