Great people to work with and it has a fairly flexible and relaxed atmosphere. However, as a designer there is no progression route and the pay is notoriously below par.

I had great career progression initially. Currently there are a lot of changes underway so we aren't entirely sure how this will look. The products are exciting to sell and always innovative.

Fun and challenging working environment where no two days are the same.

New business is a large part of this sales/ account manager role. You will be a marketing consultant, not a sales rep.

Global is a fab place to work, every day is different and there is always something fun going on.

Working in the admin side of it, you get to work with a variety of people. Globalers are all really hard working and passionate people.
Pros
Technology, Freebies, Fun atmosphere
Cons
Sometimes you have to put in the extra hours to keep up standards but it is always appreciated.

I was very fortunate to become one of the youngest Breakfast Show Producers at Global and was rewarded great opportunities to work with some of the UK's top talent in presenting and producers. I mainly learnt how to apply creativity to commercial decisions, how to engage audiences and stay meticulously organised.
Pros
Working with top talent.

A typical day at work would be phoning new customers to sell them a portfolio of items to suit there individual needs, covering the South West and South Hams. I also was at this time doing a ongoing course at Global Radio to get to the next level. They had there own work structure. The most enjoyable part was being your own manager.
Pros
Sales, Telesales, Meeting Customers, Needs find, Selling a Diverse range of proudcts
Cons
long hours especially when doing the course

Global is amazing. The Leadership is second to none and they lead by example. I often wish I had never moved on to other opportunities. You learn a lot from everyone.

Be prepared to be expected to work out of hours.

Technology and products great but if you struggle they don't help they put more pressure on.


Salary comes in about £23k


High turnover in staff across the region and as a private employer get away with lots.


If you know someone that has worked there ask how many have left in the last 18 months.
Pros
Technology
Cons
Management is poor and expect miracles without proper support

No two days at work are the same. I worked as part of a big team at some of the UK's largest events! You gain an amazing knowledge of the music industry whilst working at Global.
