What we need in a nutshell

We’re looking for an Event Sales Development Executive to build on the commercial opportunities for running first class events at our three Lincolnshire holiday parks.

Who are we?

We’re a dynamic and growing company, shaking up the Great British holiday at our award-winning UK resorts. Guests at our Lincolnshire parks enjoy a huge variety of exciting facilities and events which set us apart from our competitors. Want to find out more about our holidays? Check out our website: http://www.awayresorts.co.uk.

What you’ll be doing

You will be maximising our opportunities for running events at our parks, from charity balls and tea dances to wedding celebrations and family parties. This includes:

  • Bringing in new events and managing and maintaining existing events
  • Cultivating long-lasting, robust relationships with local group organisers to build a calendar of regular events at each park
  • Overseeing the logistics of successful events, working closely with colleagues from different departments and liaising with outside contractors
  • Driving and improving the events proposition, focusing on the commercial returns of all events
  • Driving local marketing activity by working closely with the Central Marketing Team
  • Managing and reviewing budgets to maximise revenue and improve the profitability of events

 

One more thing…many of our events happen at holiday times, so you’ll need to work your magic on bank holidays and weekends too.

Skills, experience and qualities you’ll need

If you can demonstrate the following, let's hear from you:

  • A good level of general education and comfortable with IT, including MS Office
  • Sales and business development experience and an understanding of events management
  • Excellent organisation and problem-solving skills with strong attention to detail
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Evidence of team management skills and an ability to motivate and persuade people at all levels
  • A creative, forward-thinking mindset
  • Experience of achieving sales targets and budget management

It’s the icing on the cake, but not essential, if you have an NVQ or higher in Events Management, events sales experience, local knowledge and an existing network, and a wide-ranging knowledge of the events and function industry.

We have a can-do, people-centred ethos at Away Resorts, and we look for certain qualities in our team members. Have a read about it and see if you fit the bill.

  • Competitive Pension
  • Bonus Scheme
