Reporting to the Head of Sales and Events we are looking to appoint a target driven Business Development Manager. Closing date for application 14 January 2018.
We've been hosting events on the site of today's Convention Centre since 1835, helping event organisers and their audiences to connect, engage, grow and play. We now welcome around 300,000 visitors and contribute an estimated economic impact of GBP 60m to Harrogate's economy each year.
As we plan the next stage of our development we are now looking for a target driven sales professional with a successful track record of winning new business in the events industry.
