Event partnerships and sales representative
Dezeen is looking for an event partnerships and sales representative to join its team in London to grow Dezeen Events Guide.
Created by Dezeen, the world’s most popular and influential architecture and design magazine, Dezeen Events Guide is a listings guide to architecture and design events around the world. It contains all the key fairs, conferences, design weeks and biennales that take place each year.
We are looking for an ambitious, organised and proactive person to build relationships with events and generate revenue and content opportunities for our events listing service Dezeen Events Guide, as well as assisting other classified commercial services including our recruitment site Dezeen Jobs and our courses guide Dezeen Courses.
Reporting to our head of classified sales, your main duties will include:
- working with the Dezeen Events Guide editor to identify suitable events to develop and build long-term relationships
- negotiating and managing event and media partnerships
- generating sales leads for event listings in Dezeen Events Guide and other Dezeen services (including talks, live streaming, videos and social media)
- working with the marketing team to promote Dezeen Events Guide
- sending regular partnership reports
- assisting with general admin duties, including preparing and issuing partnership agreements, booking forms and invoices
We want someone who is enthusiastic, engaging, organised and highly motivated. Excellent writing and communication skills are essential.
Knowledge of the architecture and design industry would be an advantage, but not essential.
The position is based at Dezeen’s office in Hoxton, London, UK. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the role will initially require a significant amount of remote working. Staff are currently required to come into the office at least once a week.
Dezeen is an equal opportunities employer. We celebrate diversity and promote equality and inclusion amongst our staff. We welcome applications for all, regardless of personal characteristics or background.
