At Koobr, we’re always on the look out for great talent, people who share our vision in achieving the very best for our company and our clients. We’re really proud of the team we have built over the years and right now we are looking to add another valued member to our band of Creative Revolutionaries.

Join the creative revolution:

Fast growing, Derby based creative company Koobr are looking for an enthusiastic, talented ‘Creative Revolutionary’ to join their team. This is your chance to become a valued part of an innovative, well respected Derby based creative agency, bringing on board new customers and helping to look after existing ones – making a real difference to the organisation.

You’ll be a bright spark with ambition to conquer the world!

The priority of the role is to acquire new customers and educate existing clients about other products and services encouraging repeat orders through great customer service.

You would be an integral part of the team, working closely with management, production and administration staff and assisting with the customer journey from first contact to regular reviews after project completion.

As an organisation we have never been about the ‘hard sell’ and much prefer getting sales through building relationships and then great customer service. That being said we are still very proactive and have traditional targets and sales processes and are very ambitious and success driven.

We believe in a commitment to quality, as well as to our customers. We are leading the revolution on creativity, innovating in everything we do.

Whilst it is not essential that you have creative industry experience, if you are able to demonstrate an understanding of the industry, it will help.

Full training in the products and services you will be selling will be provided and a full UK driving licence and own transport are essential to enable travelling to and from meetings.

In return for your expertise we are offering a good basic salary and uncapped generous commission.  The ideal candidate should expect to double their basic salary with commission.
