Up to 30K basic OTE 38K

We are working with one of the largest and most successful sports and leisure companies in the Uk , they offer the finest sporting and leisure facilities with annual individual memberships costing upwards of £1000. Due to an internal progression we care looking for a sales and marketing manager for their Southend club. It is one of the largest and most successful clubs in the region with a membership base of 7000 .

We are looking for a sales and membership manager who can demonstrate great leadership and who has a proven track record in a proactive sales environment. We are very open to backgrounds and our client has successfully recruited candidates from a wide range of backgrounds including health and fitness, hospitality, retail banking, estate agency , recruitment consultants and serviced offices. Unlike most sales management jobs we're not looking for you to cold call and business develop relentlessly, our client is just looking for you to make the most of the huge number of incoming leads and internal referrals and then working with a localised marketing budget to drive leads and awareness. If you are familiar with the Challenger sales approach that would be advantageous but not essential as training will be provided.

What is important is having a genuine passion and interest for sport and leisure, great interpersonal and presentation skills and the ability to lead from the front in meeting and exceeding monthly sales targets. You will typically be working on a rolling shift basis which will include some weekends and bank holidays. In addition to a sector leading basic salary there is genuine opportunity to earn up to 8k in commission and bonuses and the other huge perk is free family membership of the club.
