Sales Account Manager
We are looking for a Sales Account Manager to join a group in the event/exhibition space!
You will work with a number of existing clients, as well as generating your own leads and opportunities, so having a combination of both Business Development and Account Management is important for this one.
You’ll be someone that doesn’t just see the short term and really enjoys building strong client relationships to really understand their long-term objectives; helping you to plan and grow accounts efficiently.
There’s a range of deals to be won, from one stand to 500 units, with a deal value from a few thousand pounds up to £500k, selling to a multitude of different industries, but if you’ve sold into aviation, pharma, recruitment, gaming / gambling, then this would be beneficial to any application received.
Writing tender documents and creating high quality presentations is something you’ll need to be great at, as well as having demonstrable presentation skills to C-level clients, both in person and virtually.
It’s an owner-managed business, so you have direct access to decision-makers and your ability to influence them and manage upwards will be hugely important to your success in this role.
This is a fast-moving, agile environment, so I don’t think this would suit someone who craves regiment and regularity. Ideally we are after someone with experience within the exhibition world!
This role is based in South West London, and although some remote work is available, a lot of your time will be spent in the office, travelling to client meetings and onsite locations for project installations; so its important to be located within a commutable distance to the office.
You will get a basic salary of between £40k – £50k, as well as other corporate benefits and a commission structure that predicts OTE’s of £60k+ year one, £80k+ year two and £100k+ year three!
We appreciate this is a tiny snapshot of what you would do, so If you are interested and want to know more, call me, send me a message (Keiran McGrath on LinkedIn), DM, or whatever is easiest. We encourage anyone who feels they are suitable, to apply, we love seeing diversity in our applicants. We use specialist technology to ensure there are no gender biases in our adverts.
Every applicant will receive a response. We sometimes make mistakes and miss things from CVs, so you will be given an opportunity to receive feedback and discuss the role in more detail if you feel necessary.
