The opportunity to join a company which is a household name in the industry, to lead their brand into the events industry!




This nationally recognised company has over 70 venues across the UK, which offer a host of activities aimed at providing memorable experiences to their customers. With a foothold in the leisure and hospitality industry, they have been incredibly successful in expanding their brand.


With their venues having hosted events such as seasonal corporate parties, team days, and social events, they are looking to expand upon this to further their success.




To spearhead their expansion into the events industry, they are looking for an Event Sales Manager who will help pave the way for events to be held across all of their key target centres. The responsibilities for this role will include:


-          Developing sales & marketing strategies

-          Handling events communications with teams

-          Proactively seeking new business

-          Working closely with upper management

-          Identifying opportunities for growth

-          Conducting market research




The ideal candidate must have a proven track record of sales within a hospitality and/or leisure environment.
