Our client is an award-winning (for over the past decade) event agency/DMC with over 25 years of strong trading history.
We’re looking for a senior sourcing manager to join their team. Reporting in to the director of sales and marketing, you will play a pivotal role in the continuation of their illustrious history.
They are industry agnostic, so you will deal with plenty of different clients across a number of industries – variety really is the spice of life here!
You will likely come from another DMC and understand the RFP process thoroughly. Here, you will be the first point of contact for the client and expertly guide them through the process until you had over to your expert ops team for delivery.
This is going to involve professionally written proposal content that clearly articulates the organisation’s value proposition (which by the way, is bang on – they’re award winning) – so having experience doing this before is really important.
We’re looking for someone who wants to work far more strategically on things like supplier relationships, you will really develop really strong supplier relationships and will grow mutually beneficial commercial relationships – there will be huge focus on supplier development.
This will involve plenty of networking and getting out in front of people – we want someone who is memorable (in a good way!) and can work a room and come away with new knowledge and contacts.
This is a UK company, with a head office based in North London (Camden) which you will need to be able to get two a couple of days a week. The role will also include plenty of travelling (mainly Europe but occasionally the US) and the attendance of plenty of networking events.
From a salary perspective you are looking at £40,000 (depending on experience )plus some fantastic features such as a company bonus scheme, gym and spa membership, private healthcare and more!
