We’re looking for a confident and motivated Sponsorship Executive to join our small, friendly team and be a big part of our growth!
White October Events will shortly be celebrating its 6 year anniversary having grown from a small start-up into a well established and respected events company running technology conferences across the UK, Europe and America.
We’re not an events agency. We design and run our own conferences – everything from coming up with a concept to researching the market, programming the content, inviting the speakers, building the website, selling the tickets and ensuring everything runs smoothly on the day! We run conferences in collaboration with industry leaders and brands to create ambitious, content-focused and engaging conferences for the digital industries.
This newly created role is to support the Sponsorship Manager across the growing portfolio of international technology conferences ranging from 150 to 1000+ people. The Sponsorship Executive will play a pivotal role in the growth of sponsorships and the business as a whole and will work very closely with the Sponsorship Manager to bring in and build on new and existing business. The role will be varied, fast-paced and very rewarding!
You will work closely with a great team of ambitious individuals who work hard together but also have a lot of fun along the way! As a fully collaborative team, you will gain insight into the whole events cycle from creation, marketing to delivery. If you want to work for an entrepreneurial events company, in a creative environment, where your voice and ideas are welcomed, then read on….
It would be ideal if you had at least one year of sales experience and some experience in the events industry but this is not a requirement.
For this role, we’re more interested in your skills and mindset than in your specific education and experience. The job would definitely suit a recent marketing or events management graduate, but we don’t require you to have a degree, nor do you need to have prior events experience.
If you’re interested in the role, please email [email protected] with your CV and cover letter explaining why you think you'd be perfect as our Sponsorship Executive. Full job description available on request. For any recruitment agents out there – sorry, we'd like direct contact with applicants only.
