Alamy Looking To Recruit Head Of Editorial Sales

Alamy says it’s ‘formalising’ their efforts in news, sports and entertainment photography with the announcement it’s looking for a head of the editorial sales department.


Senior manager with news media experience required to develop a worldwide news division for Alamy, the world’s largest independently owned stock photo agency.

The role

Reporting directly to the CEO, you will be creating visual news products for Alamy’s existing customer base as well as for new markets and platforms. You will be responsible for defining the product plan, implementing change, establishing processes, and continuously assessing the products you deliver against the competition. You will be taking often complex and conflicting direction from customers and contributors and distilling them down into products that will become essential everyday tools for end users.

Working with customers, photographers, and videographers, your immediate priorities will be to provide leadership and to articulate a workable plan to the various stakeholders. You will also be working closely with peers from other departments in Content, Sales, Development, Design, and Operations to bring together the strands necessary to build a complete product.

You must have a solid background in the news industry, considerable line management experience, be willing to travel, and be an excellent communicator.
