Part-Time, Corporate Sponsor and Business Development

Confident sales individual, comfortable at communicating with senior level business professionals and corporate stakeholders, establishing warm leads and converting these to corporate membership sales and / or corporate sponsorship agreements. 

As not every lead will result in a sale you must be both a good communicator as well as able to handle rejection whilst maintaining corporate relations. 

This role offers the opportunity to work part-time and remotely, although some days present in London each month will be required to fulfill the role.
