Jobs in the ESB Group

ESB Group - Sales & Marketing Director

ESB is the UK's leading distributor of books and other products related to the languages and literatures of Europe. We have a warehouse in Cheltenham and a bookshop in central London.

We represent many of Europe's top specialist publishers. We carry out a broad range of promotion activities throughout the year, both off- and online. Our websites have had nearly 500,000 unique visitors in the past 12 months and online sales have become a significant part of our business.

We now want to appoint someone with appropriate experience to direct and develop all our sales and marketing functions. The right person will: speak, read and write excellent English and at least two other European languages; know his/her way round the UK education scene; have a good understanding of IT; be familiar with the major social media channels; not be afraid of figures; and be a good communicator and team player. Experience of the book trade would be an advantage but is not essential.

ESB is a small, independent family company, and the successful candidate can expect to be involved in, and contribute to, the management of all aspects of the business from the start.

We offer an initial 2-year contract at a salary of 35,000 plus profit share. All other terms and conditions are negotiable.
