Due to rapid growth and expansion our client is looking for an experienced and dedicated Sales Director, preferably coming from an Audio Visual / Technical / Digital background, who will be reporting directly into the Managing Director.

Ideally, the successful candidate will have some previous Audio Visual (screens) / Digital experience along with some familiarity with different digital display technologies, which would be advantageous for the field in which they will be working. Failing this, it would also be beneficial for the Account Executive to have some Cloud / SaaS experience, and the ability to think on their feet.
