SPONSORSHIP SALES MANAGER - B2B EVENTS
LONDON
£26,000 - £32,000 + OTE £80,000 ++

NJ14880

Don't miss this rare opportunity to join a market leading B2B events company in a sponsorship sales role!

THE COMPANY

This brilliant business is the brainchild of leading entrepreneurs with a global company background who saw a gap in the market for B2B events that connect leaders in a different way. Using interactive techniques and intimate networking strategies they have successfully grown from a boutique to over 100 staff in their European HQ and are now looking to emulate their success in the UK.

With an event portfolio of 50 per year across the globe, this is a business that sees their people as the way for them to grow further and really invests to formulate pioneering events that give them the competitive edge. Strong in the manufacturing, auto, technology and healthcare sectors their proposition is simple - develop the content around long term business needs that won't be a flash in the pan.

This business prides itself on having an amazing company culture and has grown to dizzy heights with no outside investment - they are unlike the hard sales hire and fire merry-go-round that can be synonymous with other commercial conference companies and intend to stay that way.

THE ROLE

A critical part of this business is the sponsorship for these forward thinking events, where the sky is the limit for their Sales Managers in the sponsorship team! Taking a long term approach in all that the do (over 70% of sponsors are repeat customers) this role is all about developing relationships.

An overview:

* Driving sponsorship sales across a portfolio of events
* Researching and promoting events to global businesses
* Managing an autonomous sales cycle and reporting to the leadership team bi-monthly
* Securing sponsorship deals up to £50k and hitting an annual target of £0.5m
* Attending events and networking with sponsors

THE CANDIDATE

The ideal candidate will have extensive experience in B2B sales and have brought in high value sponsorship deals that are complex in nature. With a deep understanding of the elements of the business development process, and a consultative sales style, you will be goal oriented and able to think conceptually.

This is an unreal opportunity for a strong business developer to take your career to new heights! Apply today!
