Grade POA, Full Time, 37 hours per week, Harrogate Convention Centre
Harrogate Convention Centre has been hosting events in Yorkshire 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 £57m to Harrogate’s economy each year.
As we plan the next stage of our development we are looking for a target driven sales professional with a track record of sales success, particularly in winning new business in the events industry.
The successful candidate will most likely have at least three years’ experience in sales preferably at a venue such as an exhibition or conference centre, or at a large hotel or similar venue.
Working with our Head of Sales you will be a self-starter with the ability to identify opportunities and make well-timed, targeted prospecting calls to meet demanding sales targets and performance KPI’s as well as maintain and grow existing accounts.
You will have the personality and credibility to quickly build relationships and gain the trust of those who commission events and their venue bookers. Due to the nature of our industry, some evening and weekend work is required.
Please call 01423 500600 and ask for the HR Support team if you need further assistance.
Please note that Harrogate Borough Council do require all applicants to complete the Council’s application form and will not accept CVs.
