AEG Presents are looking for a tenacious seller with an abundance of creative ideas to join their Global Partnerships team as Sales Manager for our new venue in Olympia, opening in 2025. First and foremost, will be securing a Naming Rights partner for the venue… so there’s an opportunity to really make a name for yourself!
Your primary responsibility is to achieve sponsorship sales targets for Olympia; so you’ll need a background in rights-holder sales; a proven track record in securing sponsorships and a sound knowledge of brand marketing particularly experiential.
You’ll also support the Olympia Sales Director to achieve the sponsorship sales targets for the wider Olympia campus; and look to secure new business across the AEG Presents portfolio of music festivals, tours and other venues (Eventim Apollo Hammersmith, Indigo at The O2 and the Halls Wolverhampton).
With this variety and scale comes the challenge of juggling a significant number of projects at any one time. You’ll need gravitas, great sales skills and flexibility in order to be successful.
You’ll be comfortable developing new business relationships, from cold call to long term partner across a variety of different stakeholder levels; so, we’re looking for someone with great communication, influencing and negotiation skills. You’ll have the ability to build good working relationships both internally and externally and have a great ‘black book’ of contacts within brands and agencies.
This really is a great role for someone looking to develop their sales career, who is results orientated and has a passion for live events.
We’ll give you a thorough induction where you’ll get to meet other new employees and learn about our culture and values and what it’s like to work at AEG. We will give you all the training in our systems, policies and procedures so that you’ll be set up for success.
Where: You’ll be based at our head office in Blackfriars, a short walk from Blackfriars rail station and Southwark Tube station on the Jubilee line. We offer flexible start and end times and welcome flexible working conversations.
