SPI Manager Maternity Cover - Thames Valley
What we’re all about:
Celador Radio forms part of the Celador Entertainment Group. We’re famous around the world for, amongst others, devising and launching the quiz show ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?’ and producing the film ‘Slumdog Millionaire’. We also own and operate twenty local and regional radio stations across the south of England. We are dedicated to championing the individual creativity inherent in our stations and talent because we believe this is the only way to deliver high quality local content at a national level.
What the job entails:
As an SPI Manager you will be responsible for all non-airtime revenue within your commercial team. You will be working closely with account managers to generate SPI business through dual calls, developing exciting ideas for clients and pro-actively identifying revenue opportunities across the business.
Ultimately, you will be responsible for meeting targets and implementing all SPI campaigns which include proposals, scripts, briefs, digital advertising and managing video production. You will be expected to champion new products and develop and maintain the relationship between sales and programming for the commercial team.
You will participate in the weekly sales and SPI meetings and identify and implement any SPI training for your region’s sales team.
Above all, you will be a champion of creative led thinking and work closely with the sales manager/Director of your team as well as the programming team to implement big ideas and encourage the use of SPI solutions for clients amongst your peers.
What are we looking for?
You must have excellent communication skills and be able to generate creative and effective ideas. A background in sales, preferably in media would also be ideal. You need to be comfortable with meeting targets and strong organisational skills will be a necessity. You will need good knowledge of PowerPoint and feel confident putting together presentations and pitching your ideas.
Ultimately, Radio sales is all about self-motivation, commercial acumen and above all a ‘can do’ attitude.
As well as this, it’s important that you can demonstrate Celador’s values:
• Freedom to be creative, to come up with new ideas, to do things differently and to be ourselves.
• Dedication to creating the highest quality output.
• Care for our teams and the local communities we serve.
• Above everything else to have a passion for radio.
