Job

We are looking for a lively, ambitious, money hungry candidates that love events, have superb planning skills and are great with people. Does this sound like you?

As a Chillisauce Event Sales Executive, you will work in our B2C (business-to-consumer) department, reacting to online enquiries generated through our website and via campaigns and be responsible for the planning and booking of stag do’s and hen parties. This is not your typical sales role, and we never cold-call.

Your working day requires you to be the groups primary contact and the face of Chillisauce, doing everything from helping customers find the perfect destination and develop their itinerary, to booking the suppliers and providing an excellent customer experience. You’ll be planning unforgettable activity weekends, mates escapes, stag parties, hen dos and celebrations for hundreds of people and groups of friends all over Europe.

This is actually one of the most versatile roles at Chillisauce and you will excel at handling multiple events at once, be able to talk on the phone and across various devices, and be able to adapt to last minute changes. Of course we work to targets, but with the high volume of enquiries and the nature of our consumer, the focus is very much upon positive consumer engagement as opposed to cold hard sales. By building relationships in an enthusiastic and friendly way with our customers you’ll find the sales will follow.

Full training will be given to get you up to speed, and whilst you’ll receive the full support of our Sales Management, Training and Product Teams, the events you organise will start and end with you.
