A bit about Fix Media
Fix Media offers tailored marketing solutions for the trade and construction sector. We have a DAB radio station in London called Fix Radio and one of the largest trade focused social media pages on Facebook called Tradesmen Banter (495,000 followers). Fix Media provides marketing solutions to Tradespeople with zero wastage. Due to the targeted nature of our offering we’ve been able to quickly attract top brands (Screwfix, Velux, Bosch) prepared to pay a premium to advertise to tradespeople via our targeted platforms.
We have a young enthusiastic team and are based in Southwark, near Waterloo. It’s a fun and exciting business that is growing very quickly and is in need of an appointment setter to help generate new opportunities for the sales team.
*Coronavirus Update*
This position is still open! We at Fix Media are strictly following government guidelines and therefore all employees are working from home. This position will follow this and be home based for as long the government guidelines dictate. We will provide the new appointment setter with the necessary IT equipment to work from home, and will concentrate on providing a full training programme via video conference during this time. We hope that utilising this preparation and training time will allow the appointment setter to hit the ground running when we return to the office.
