Head of Sales
We’re looking for a Head of Sales to join a full-service experience agency who create unforgettable experiences for both their corporate and public clients!
You will spearhead the business goal of increasing T/O from £4m to £10m in the next 3 years. You’re coming in to a well-functioning and strong team of Senior Account Managers and Account Managers, so will lead by example and promote best sales practice.
It’s a great chance to put your own stamp into the business and you will be given the opportunity to build their teams through strategic planning and recruitment. You will have ultimate responsibility for all elements of event sales from customer contact, business development, account management and client relationships – it’s a wide-ranging role!
It’s a fast-paced environment with typically short sales cycles – but all about the experience the customer gets. So, you’re probably not going to be the ‘pushy’ type, more someone that can inform, impress and close the inbound inquiries with your charisma and charm.
We are looking for people who have demonstrable track records of building teams, exceeding targets and leading teams in the event space. You will also be adept at leading by example – we don’t want someone who is just happy to put their feet up whilst the team grafts – you’ll be someone who will live the best practice that you preach.
Their office is based in Sheffield, they offer flexibility on your start and finish times – this role is going to suit someone who likes being around their colleagues and leading by example.
From a salary perspective you are looking at a base of £50,000-£60,000 depending on your experience with a personal and team commission. You’re going to work for someone who recognises and rewards hard work and wants you to create a great team around you!
If you are interested or want to know more, call me, send me a message, DM or e-mail – 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 is no gender bias 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.
