The Company

A large scale global events business with a high number of world leading brands and a high growth trajectory. They are always looking at new and compelling ways to grow revenues whilst also improving ROI for their clients, from acquiring new tech platforms through to launching events in new markets and sectors.

You will be working in a very fast-paced environment, sourcing your own leads whilst also chasing opportunities which the marketing team have supplied. You will be someone who lives and breathes the role, is passionate about the success of the event and is motivated by the opportunity to earn lots of commission and appreciate early career development/promotion.
