Sales Talent (M/F)

Following induction, you will be responsible for the sales and distribution of our high-quality publications. You will independently supervise our national and international sales partners, representatives, and customers. You will optimize existing sales channels and head up the disposition, controlling, and coordination of our shipments. Together with our Marketing and PR teams, you will also develop promotional measures and observe and develop new markets.

The ideal basis for this position is a corresponding course of studies and/or relevant professional training, as well as sufficient work experience in the field of art book publishing.

In addition to your affinity towards art, photography, and books, you are also characterized by a high degree of personal commitment, flexibility, and creativity—and have not only a good understanding of numbers, but also the “bite” necessary to master the task of sales and distribution. Because of the international character of the publishing house, its program, and its partners, it is essential that you have a solid command of the English language, both written and verbal. Experience in direct marketing is advantageous.

If you also have very good communication skills and social manners and are capable of organizing the personal and professional freedom entrusted to you in an expedient manner, then we should definitely get to know each other!

You can look forward to carrying out a highly diversified, exciting, and independent professional activity as part of open-minded and ambitious team.

Since its founding in 1995, Kehrer Verlag has been specialized in the fields of photography, art, and culture. In close cooperation with international artists, authors, museums, and other institutional partners, the publishing house produces its publications in conjunction with Kehrer Design, our in-house design studio.
