Venue Sourcing Executive – Maternity Cover

Location: Ashby-de-la-Zouch, UK

Job Summary

We are looking for a Venue Sourcing Executive to join our busy team of experts, supplying inspirational hotel and venue solutions for our clients’ meetings and events.

To be considered for this role, you will need to have experience of venue finding for events both in the UK and internationally. If you understand what a DDR includes, have an understanding of compliance considerations, extol the virtues of natural daylight and understand the difference between cabaret and classroom layouts, this could be the role for you.

Our in-house venue sourcing specialists understand what an ideal healthcare event venue looks like and know the regulatory codes they need to comply with. As market leaders, we work hard to ensure best-fit solutions – priding ourselves on our personalised, efficient, yet non-transactional service.

On a daily basis you’ll respond to new enquiries, liaise with venues, negotiate rates and added value, check contracts, and prepare proposals and concepts for a range of event types. Strong analytical skills are desired as you’ll be expected to compare offers and make recommendations on the most suitable solution to a brief.

You’ll need to know your Aarhus from your El Paso – displaying a diverse knowledge of international and domestic destinations – and be keen to keep your industry knowledge up-to-date through supplier visits, site inspections and networking opportunities. An advanced understanding of the Microsoft Office suite is also a necessity as you’ll regularly flit between PowerPoint, Excel and Word.

If you think this could be the job for you, please download this editable application form and send it (along with your CV and salary expectations) to Helen Capelin.  Please note that this position is maternity cover, commencing at the beginning of June for a 12 period.

This role is based at our European headquarters in the picturesque market town of Ashby-de-la-Zouch, close to Nottingham, Leicester and Derby and easily accessible from the M1.
