Careers at FutureBook
Yearbook Sales/Service Representative for the Fraser Valley and Central BC
About the job:
FutureBook Yearbooks has established territories in the Fraser Valley and Cariboo. We are seeking an ambitious, motivated, self-starter to maintain and grow these areas.
A FutureBook Yearbook representative provides extensive teaching, support and graphic design assistance to their school customers by overseeing and encouraging creative and dynamic yearbook production throughout the school year. Regular visits, calls and emails will be the norm, and you will be responsible for coordinating your own schedule to meet the demands of the yearbook classroom. This is a fun, creative, fast-paced, and rewarding career that demands collaboration, yet is very self-driven.
While FutureBook’s presence is strong in the BC Interior and Fraser Valley, generating new business is necessary in order to grow and expand your existing base.
Your base salary is negotiable based on current territory and travel expenses, with plenty of opportunity to grow commission. For the right individual, a six figure income is achievable within the first few years.
Residency in or near the Fraser Valley will be most suitable, to focus on this territory and for ease of access to travel through Kamloops to Prince George approximately every four to five weeks. Your possible territory holds tremendous potential for sales growth.
Proficiency in the Adobe Suite, specifically InDesign and Photoshop would be advantageous.
You are familiar and comfortable with computers and technology, as you will not only be expected to learn new software quickly, but be ready to teach your clients. (You will, of course, receive in-depth training and guidance before you begin visiting schools.)
You are a dynamic sales-oriented individual who is excited about this opportunity and works diligently to create and nurture relationships.
You are a high energy individual who thinks on your feet, possess great people skills, and will have experience leading and motivating groups. Teaching experience is preferred.
You are a self-starter with the discipline to work independently, and motivated by having the opportunity to offer BC schools North America’s highest quality yearbook.
You have the ability to set up an in-home office and have a reliable vehicle for constant travel in your territory.
About the company:
FutureBook is the youngest of the Canadian yearbook companies, but in our ten years we have established ourselves as the leader in BC’s yearbook industry. Our yearbook quality, included options, service, and delivery record has no peer. FutureBook’s paper, binding, covers, and full colour printing quality is dramatically superior to every competitor in North America, and our prices are lower. Your selling advantage is vast, but competition is still strong among established companies which have built up solid relationships with many schools throughout your territory.

The Yearbook Industry:
Most middle schools and all secondary schools produce a yearbook. Yearbooks are a 3 billion dollar industry in North America. The traditional yearbook companies have not changed their base offering in over 100 years, with the exception of full colour pages. FutureBook has created an array of industry changing innovations that allow us a tremendous advantage over every competitor. FutureBook’s quality, included options, on-time shipping, and pricing is by far the best in the industry. The right FutureBook representative has the opportunity to double the income potential of the large established yearbook providers.
Please provide your resume, cover letter, and any social media profiles (Linked In, Twitter, etc) which would support your candidacy.
