edible South Shore & South Coast is a mission-based, seasonal publication that focuses on local and sustainable food and community-focused businesses. Our mission is to educate, to encourage the purchasing and consumption of locally produced food, beverages, and products, and to help build the South Shore Food community. Buying local is a movement, not merely a trend.
We are seeking a motivated and qualified Client Services Representative with a passion for local food and the desire to make a difference. This is an independent contractor, commission only position. The commission plan is generous and you may take over several existing accounts, however, new business development is the top priority. Previous experience in print sales is helpful but not necessary.
The Client Services Representative will need to cold call, visit, pursue sales leads, and build and maintain account relationships. In addition to having excellent written and verbal communication skills, strong attention to detail, and great follow-through, the ideal candidate will also be a patient listener and self-motivated.
You will be responsible for all aspects of the sale from the initial contact through ad material management. You will help with the initial distribution of the finished magazine to your clients (they love to see you coming!) as well as follow up delivery when necessary. We will do all the billing and collections.
edible South Shore &South Coast covers all of Plymouth and Bristol counties. For the ideal candidate, this position will immerse you in Southeastern Massachusetts’ local food environment. You will learn about our community and build friendships with the growers, chefs, fishers, food artisans, restaurateurs, farmers’ markets managers, and business owners who are quietly and passionately creating a healthier food community for all of us. You will also be involved with events such as farmers’ markets, food festivals, foodie gatherings, and green events; learn about sustainable food, and acquire an understanding of magazine publishing. You will gain great satisfaction knowing you are supporting the locavore movement in a meaningful and substantial way. This is a very unique and outstanding opportunity for the right person.
