About the Company

A global media corporation with a mature, trusting and fast paced sales environment. You will be given plenty of freedom to get on with the job and will be judged by your results, rather than whether you have made a certain number of phone calls. They offer plenty of training and development as well as strong financial rewards. Despite them being a large organisation, you would be working in small close-knit team environment.

Event Partnerships Executive position

This global media corporation has just set up a dedicated events department for their flagship national newspaper brand and are now launching awards events and various other bespoke consumer client events.

Therefore they are looking for their first Events Partnerships Exec to go out to new and existing advertising clients and sell event sponsorship solutions. These are launch events so for the first 9-12 months you should expect a new business focused role, although you will keep all of the new clients that you win business from, and of course in time the role will shift into more of an account management/new business hybrid role.

Uniquely, in addition to selling event sponsorship, you will also be part of the close-knit team which comes up with ideas for new events.

Requirements for this Event Partnerships Executive position

  • You will need to have strong new business credentials as you will be 100% new business focused for the next 12 months as the department continues to launch new events
  • You must have b2b multiplatform media sales or b2b event sales experience to be considered (3+ years)
  • You will be naturally confident, outgoing and highly organised
  • You will need to have a stable career history

If you think that you could be the Event Partnerships Executive that our client is looking for, please apply.
