International Sales ManagerDo you have experience in exhibition and event sales?Got overseas management experience?Want to lead your new team of sales superstars to greatness?Have you ticked “yes” to all of the above? Then we want to hear from you!We’re working with one of the coolest Events organisers in London town and they’re looking for a big hitting Sales Manager to be the spearhead for a big, glittering, sparkly and profitable trade exhibition within their portfolio!It will be your job to be the Exhibitions knight (or knightess – we’re not fussy!) in shining armour and be responsible for building a team and leading your merry crew to greatness whilst training and supporting them to be the best that they can be! For you to do this you will need to produce sales plans and weekly reports along with relaying your forecasts and budgets to the board.You’ll be that hunter for business but that nurturing supportive leader who has a real flair for sales, who will be able to build and guide their team to glory and deliver more year-on-year record breaking results.You will be a Sales Manager currently (or a senior Key Account Manager) and have been in the Events or Exhibitions Sales arena for at least 3 years and be great at all what being a sales manager involves - if this needs explaining then this is probably not for you.Naturally, a proven track record of your brilliance is essential, as is an obvious flair for sales and you would be capable of managing lots of different accounts.The FitYou must have overseas management experience. Ideally you’ll have a minimum of 2 years’ experience in a sales management role, preferably working on an event in the consumer sector. You’ll be ahead of the pack if you have experience working in the exhibitions industry but if your experience falls under the media or events banner, we still want to hear from you as you can be taught the ropes in your role – after all, exhibitions is what they do and they do them pretty bloomin’ well!What`s in it for you, you ask?Salary is based on experience, but we`re talking a basic in the ballpark of £40k plus commission. If you want to work within a fun filled, growing company, with great people and great ideas this is the role for you. On top of that, you’ll get invited to all of their events, summer parties and guzzle champagne in the office.Ultimately, they’re not interested in people who want a job. Apply elsewhere for that. They want creative and entrepreneurial people who’d like to manage multi layered teams for them in the future and if that fails, you’ll retire early off of your great commissions. They have big plans and bigger dreams and they expect you to have the same!This role would suit someone who has experience in;
Sales, new business, contract negotiation, cold calling, business development, account management, account development, exhibition sales, event sales, media sales, publishing sales, advertising sales, customer acquisition, lead generation, lead sourcing, closing, winning business, outbound calling, face to face meetings, client meetings, exhibition sales, consultative sales, progressive sales, enterprise sales, classified sales, people management, leading teams
