SENIOR SALES EXECUTIVE / SALES MANAGER
CORPORATE HOSPITALITY & EXHIBITIONS
LONDON
£COMPETITIVE

NJ15228

Join one of the leading players in consumer led events as part of their thriving sales team and drive your sales career to a new level!

THE COMPANY

This fantastic company has a foothold in many areas including media, events and sports with a strong legacy in public and consumer events. Based in wonderful modern offices they offer career progression like no other as well as some 'out of the box' benefits that are second to none. Events can range from family orientated events, to culinary festivals and entertainment events across the UK and beyond!

With excellent OTE, benefits, career progression and a great working environment - there is now an exciting opportunity to join their well established sales team and attend events across the UK!

THE ROLE

Due to expansion, we have some unmissable opportunities for Senior Sales Executives to sell corporate hospitality, sponsorship and exhibition packages to some great clients whilst working within a lively team. We are also recruiting at Sales Manager level, where the role is still sales focused as well as managing a small team of Execs.

Responsibilities include:

* Researching, generating and nurturing leads
* Attending networking events to meet with potential prospects
* Inputting all sales activity on the company CRM system
* Sending out bespoke proposals to clients
* Securing and winning new business
* Working towards regular sales targets
* Keeping up to date with industry news
* Overseeing Sales Executives

THE CANDIDATE

The successful candidate will be a passionate sales person with a proven track record in a similar role. An interest in cultural, consumer and lifestyle events and a passion for sales is really important as well as ideally experience in selling similar packages. Experience of exhibition stand sales or hospitality sales is essential - we will also consider candidates who work at venues selling hospitality packages.

Articulate, well presented and self motivated you must be able to work fairly autonomously to build your own sales pipeline, not be afraid to pick up the phone to senior level clients and feel comfortable securing deals. You will have a strong sales team behind you and be well supported in any new business opportunities.

This is a fantastic role within a truly modern and forward thinking global events company who invest time and money into the well being of their employees!

Alternatively - forward this role onto someone in your network and take advantage of our £350 reward scheme for anyone recommended who we place!
