About Us

Oxford University Press is a department of the University of Oxford, which furthers the University’s objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide.
 
The  Academic Division publishes books, journals and digital resources for the research, professional and higher education markets.

About the Role

We currently seek a highly motivated and experienced Sales Manager to join the dynamic and growing team responsible for selling OUP’s market-leading online resources (such as the Oxford Journals, Oxford Medicine Online, and the Oxford English Dictionary Online) in our core Academic market in the UK and Ireland.
 
Key responsibilities of the role include:

  • preparing and implementing sales strategies to maximise sales of Online Products and Journals to institutional customers
  • co-ordinating research into new prospects and new sales opportunities in order to identify areas for growth

  • acquiring and maintaining a demonstrably thorough knowledge of the electronic information publishing industry to help maintain OUP’s competitive advantage and respond well to customer requirements

About You

The ideal candidate will be a publishing or publishing-related professional, able to demonstrate experience in sales or marketing, ideally educated to degree level or equivalent. There is no line management responsibility with the role, so management experience is not required.
