Hire Space is a leader and pioneer in event technology, both in the UK and globally. We are at the forefront of a vibrant and fast-changing industry that is seeing a renaissance since the pandemic as companies seek to bring people together.
We operate the UK’s largest venue marketplace, which hosts over 6,000 venues and is used by over 2 million event planners each year. Our clients include Google, Facebook, Red Bull, MAC Cosmetics, UNICEF, and Dr. Martens. Separate to the online marketplace, our technology and team also power the global event functions at a number of well-known companies.
In addition to our well-known technology and expertise in venue finding, we have built a reputation for delivering world-class events both in-person and online through our own event platform, Arena.
As the event industry ramps back up, this role will lead the delivery of outstanding events across a variety of formats for our most prestigious clients.
For a glimpse of what a day in the life or one of the Hire Space sales team looks like, have a read of this blog post "A day in the life of the Hire Space Sales Team", written by one of our Account Executives.
As an Account Executive you engage with qualified leads to sell the portfolio of Hire Space Services with a keen focus on closing an ongoing Hire Space 360 contract to ensure long term relationship with the customer.
You’ll exemplify great sales practice to close deals to optimise revenue from the leads that you are attributed. Once signed you’ll ensure that these clients are retained through a perfect handoff to the relationship management team, and that they are happy with the initial contracted service.
You’ll proactively increase your customer signature rate by demonstrating sales best practice through your high level of industry and product knowledge, and your ability to build valuable relationships quickly.
You are naturally curious; a hunter who will jump on every lead, thinking outside the box to deliver the needs of the client. Every interaction is an opportunity for you to find out more about your contact, their company and how they book events. You’ll use this to sign Hire Space 360 agreements between Hire Space and the client.
You’ll help maintain a positive culture of excellence and achievement for new Hire Space joiners and play a fundamental role in achieving the Client Services team mission.
You’ll be an ambassador for Hire Space in the industry representing Hire Space at events and building a network of relationships with venues, suppliers and clients. You’ll demonstrate the Hire Space values at all times in your interactions with our venues and clients.
This is a hybrid remote / in-person role. You will be required to work from our Central London office location from time to time, and this allocation may change over time. You should always be somewhere that operates on UK time.
Our client base is predominantly in London and it is important that you are able to visit venues, clients and attend our away days in-person. You can usually expect to be in/around London on average 3 days per week, managing your own diary as appropriate.
At Hire Space, we embrace diversity in all of its forms and foster an inclusive environment for all people to do the best work of their lives with us. We are an equal opportunity employer. All applicants will be considered for employment without attention to ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, family or parental status, national origin, veteran, neurodiversity status or disability status.
