Do you like the idea of selling event sponsorship, sponsored blogs and podcasts, webinars and similar?

Excited to join a small, friendly and professional conference organiser for the extremely fast-growing sustainability sector?

If yes, please read on....

The Company

A highly respected, friendly and professional events and media company specialising in the global sustainability sector. Through their events and digital content, they help corporations to learn how to become more sustainable, from the plastics debate and climate change initiatives through to deforestation and slave labour. They help corporations to understand how being more sustainable can be good for business and help to futureproof profits and our environment.

The role of Sponsorship Sales Executive

This is an INCREDIBLY UNIQUE opportunity for someone to fast-track their career straight into a conference sponsorship position. Working in a small, close knit team you will be selling sponsorship opportunities across virtual and physical events. Those sponsorship opportunities will include speaking slots, exhibition space, marketing and branding. Additionally, you will be speaking to those companies about content solutions from collaborative bespoke research through to sponsored articles, podcasts, webinars and much more. 

Clients you would be selling to will include tech companies, sustainability consultants, auditors and some of the large corporates themselves (who actively support driving forward the need for sustainability).

You will be working in a young and dynamic team environment where you are given the training and support but then empowered with the autonomy to get on with the job. Therefore you wont have the usual pressure to make a certain number of phone calls per day or send out a certain number of proposals each week - instead, you can focus on winning new business and retaining previous customers.

Requirements for this Sponsorship Sales Executive Position

  • Highly articulate, confident and outgoing
  • 2:1 or higher degree grade from a good university
  • Polished with a strong written ability
  • Organised and driven
  • Sales experience or a real desire to build a professional sales career
