Gloucester, Gloucestershire

Salary up to £24,500 + Commission + Bonus

Full-time, Permanent

We are currently working with a great venue in the Gloucester area who are looking for a target-driven and highly motivated Sales Executive, to be responsible for selling a range of hospitality packages for several events throughout the year.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a growing, friendly and supportive organisation that is constantly going from strength to strength.

In this position, you will be responsible for the full sales cycle including generating your own leads, making contact with potential customers by phone, email and face to face meetings and building long-term profitable relationships. You will be expected to hit targets and, as a result, will need to be extremely self-motivated with a desire to succeed in a challenging and competitive environment.

To be considered for this position it is essential that you have experience of selling, ideally within a hospitality environment. If you haven’t worked within a sports environment, we would happy to receive applications from people who have worked in proactive sales position such as recruitment, estate agency or insurance.

You will need to hit the ground running and therefore a good awareness of potential clients in the Gloucester area would be necessary. Proven success in a business to business sales environment is essential. Knowledge of events and conference packages and the types of clients these may appeal to would be of benefit to the successful candidate.

This is an exciting opportunity that will offer the successful candidate a variety of challenges and the chance to make a big difference to a growing organisation. This position is paying a basic salary of up to £24,500 with commission and a bonus on top.

If this is of interest to you and you have the required experience, then please get in touch with Lynn Billowes at The Executives in Sport Group.
