We’re always looking for talented and ambitious sales agents to sell large sponsorship packages on behalf of our clients. Sponsorship packages range from £7,100 to £95,500 per package, excluding VAT.
We’re looking to recruit results-driven sales agents who will actively seek out and engage customer prospects. We pay generous commission structures to ensure we recruit and retain the most talented agents.
We support a flexible working environment and operate a decentralised business model. You will mostly work from home and remain in contact with your line manager. However, as a sponsorship sales agent you must be able to travel to attend client meetings to pitch our packages.
Preference will be given to candidates with sales experience, particularly with large sponsorship packages. You will also need to be knowledgeable and sensitive to issues in the Black and minority ethnic (BME) community. If you do not have experience in sales, your application will not be successful.
