Business Development Executive - Events

Location: Millbrook, Bedfordshire
Shift Pattern: Days
Job Reference: EV SA 1

This role will report to the Business Development Manager.

Role Responsibilities

Working with both London and regional agencies, as well as directly with corporate clients, the job will require the applicant to be based mainly on site with the flexibility to occasionally travel to exhibitions or forums. Due to the production led nature of our venues, approximately 95% of our clients are from the agency sector.

Time and space in our venues are the primary focus of the sales activity but, increasingly, a turnkey solution is being sought by the direct corporates who use the venue. In these instances, the events team harnesses the myriad of skills within the department to create a holistic solution.

The key responsibilities of the role are:

  • Providing support to the Business Development Manager and Head of Events as necessary including a weekly briefing of sales activity
  • Increasing the sales revenue margins of the business through establishing new business opportunities and developing existing client relationships
  • Developing sales strategies that identify prospective and existing clients to target and generate new business to specific targets

Essential criteria:

  • Full UK driving license
  • Computer literate
  • Strong attention to detail
  • Good communication skills (both written and verbal)
