Reach plc (formerly known as Trinity Mirror) is a British newspaper, magazine and digital publisher. They are Britain’s largest newspaper group, publishing 240 regional papers in addition to well known papers such as The Daily Mirror and The People.
Reach plc was founded in 1903 by the British newspaper magnate, Alfred Harmsworth when he established The Daily Mirror. Between the years of 1906 and 1908, Alfred financially rescued the Observer and The Times as well as acquiring The Sunday Times under the Reach umbrella.
In February 2018, the company completed the acquisition of the UK publishing assets of Northern & Shell, which included the Daily Express, Sunday Express, Daily Star and OK! Following tremendous business growth, Trinity Mirror re-branded as Reach.
The rich history and talent that Reach possesses has resulted in the company being named as one of Britain’s most successful newspaper companies ever. The determination to keep pushing with already such a prestigious status on their shoulders, inspired us to develop a strong working relationship and provide the talent they require to keep up their momentum.
An account manager is responsible for the management of existing client accounts, as well as generating new business through the delivery of bespoke advertising solutions. To succeed in this role, a successful candidate would require significant skills and experience within the sales division as well as competency in building brand awareness.
Due to the overall quality of the shortlisted candidates, the client decided to progress all of the individuals along to a first stage interview. After this initial interview stage, the client managed to reduce the list down to just two individuals who they felt ticked all of their boxes. The company brought back the highlighted candidates for a second stage interview, before offering both of them the position. One of the successful candidates accepted the role and was placed in just three weeks.
We received exceptional feedback across all shortlisted candidates and fully satisfied our client’s brief. The process from start to finish was a complete success for both parties. Furthermore, the candidate possessed such a fantastic skillset and personality, that the client is now considering fast-tracking them into a senior role.
