Event Sales Manager (Venue)
Looking for a creative, outgoing & target-driven Event Sales Manager / Venue Sales Manager for an exciting new London venue space!
Fast paced, finger on the pulse and innovative venue group who will soon be opening their newest multi-functional property in London offering amazing spaces for creative events to corporates, commercial companies, private clients and event & production agencies.
Reporting to the Head of Events (and with a dotted line in to the Venue GM as well), this Event Sales Manager role will see you working at a brand new large London venue opening next month. The venue will have 3 revenue streams - a co-working and membership area (including hot desks, meeting rooms, members lounge etc..), a large restaurant & bar and various "cool as you can get" event spaces for both corporate and private hire.
In this role you'll be reaching out to a real mix of clients (corporate, private, creative agencies, members/co-working tenants etc as the idea is to run both corporate/private and creative events in the space), to promote the new venue, secure sales & maximise venue hire revenue and generally put the new venue on the London venue map!
Responsibilities will include venue-side sales, implementing the venue hire strategy, setting, achieving & exceeding financial targets, developing & implementing venue hire marketing strategies, responding to enquiries, client meetings, show-rounds & site visits, taking bookings, securing & processing contracts, budget & financial management (including P&L, analysing figures, interpreting trends, profit maximisation, financial admin & reporting, KPI's etc,) and building relationships with existing and potential corporate/private clients, venue finding companies, conference agencies and corporate & private supporters.
You'll be a highly motivated and target driven event / venue sales professional (minimum of 3 years solid experience) with a proven track record of generating income and maximising revenue from venue hire. You'll be a confident & articulate communicator who can liaise effectively with people at all levels (both internally & externally) who already has a good all-round understanding of events (planning & delivery), hospitality, venue operations and event-related contractor management (F&B, production, theming & floral suppliers etc). You'll also need to be a high-energy go-getter who is keen to grab an opportunity (i.e. someone who could grow with the company as they expand) and someone who thrives in a fast paced, target driven and commercially focused role!
This really is a fabulous Event Sales role with a rapidly expanding and exciting company so there will be lots of career development opportunities and significant earning potential in the very near future for the right person!
