Conferences and events are a key way for our communities to learn and connect with their peers, and it just so happens that we love organising them.

Once our production team have created the agenda and our marketing team have got their teeth into promoting it, our client services team get to work telling everyone about it by shouting from the rooftops.

It doesn’t matter to us what sector you’ve worked in or what you’ve sold in the past, it just matters that you have the aptitude to quickly get a deep understanding of our conferences, have the ability to articulate that knowledge clearly and concisely and above all you are friendly, personable and have a natural ability to build relationships.

There’s currently 24 people in our business and the sales team is growing. Our communities are all about bringing people together and sharing knowledge, experience and connections.

Have you got what it takes to ...

  • Increase the number of delegates attending our conferences and events

  • Cultivate strong lasting relationships at executive/director and managerial level amongst our communities

  • Deeply understand a conference agenda and articulate the benefits of attending to senior executives

  • Tenaciously and assiduously communicate the benefits of our conferences to the community

  • Contribute ideas to marketing campaigns in terms of themes, timing, and content

We're looking for you to:

  • Have some experience in an office in a sales environment, although we’ve been known to take on amazing people with no experience!

  • Love presenting and talking on the phone with confidence and charisma

  • Be highly organised, great teammate, lots of initiative, common sense, fun
