Working for a multinational company is fast paced, demanding and very rewarding. As an Events Sales Executive you'll be joining an award winning team selling to global brands and prestigious companies worldwide. You will become an expert in sales following our graduate training academy, and working with over 200 organisations across six countries means we need out next wave of ambitious, confident graduates to join us straight away.

We are recognised globally as a leading Events brand, working with leading clients across Europe.

The Role

The Graduate Events Sales Executives will be responsible for maximizing revenue through advertising and sponsorship.

The sales executive will be trained so that they can advise clients on where they need to advertise, and develop a relationship through regular contact through meetings and media events. The role will require a graduate who is competent and active on social media sites, as these will be utilized by the Sales Executive for online marketing.

The graduate must be bright, motivated with a natural sales ability. To be successful in this industry you must be competitive and want to progress quickly. The office is fast paced, fashionable and in the heart of Soho, so graduates must be willing to relocate to London. This is a graduate position, and a 2.2 degree is expected as a minimum.

What We Offer

In return for your hard work, you will receive the best training available in the sales industry, being guided by managers and directors. Each graduate will be assigned a mentor throughout the training process, this mentor will be a Sales Executive from the previous year's cohort.

The starting salary is between £20,000 - £22,000, rising to £25,000 in your second year with the company.
