  • Collaborating with CEO to broaden the business community’s financial support of our educational efforts.

The right candidate will:

  • Have strong verbal and written communication skills to effectively convey the value of advertising solutions to our clients.
  • Be persuasive and able to guide our customers toward mutually beneficial solutions, caring about the success of Concord businesses.
  • Maintain honesty and integrity in all interactions to build trust and credibility to foster long-term relationships with clients.
  • Be resilient, accepting disappointments while staying motivated.

Compensation: Job requires minimum of 30 hrs a week with compensation of $45,000 and can transition into full time with annual compensation of $60,000. Although we will train, the ideal candidate would have 1 to 5 years of sales experience.
