Job Description:

As an Event Sponsorship Lead, you are awesome in creating partnerships between events and organizations that sponsor. You get that it’s a reciprocal relationship that requires sincere interest in the sponsor’s objectives and how to help them achieve their goals. With this solid win-win understanding, you are well-equipped to gain valuable sponsorship deals for Your Workplace.

  • Interact with members of the sales and event management team for the ultimate gain of sponsorship solutions we can all cheer about

  • Proven track record in meeting sales quotas with a passion for the chase and closing deals
  • Strong relationship building skills for creating strategic alliances and closing deals. We find strength in this area and want to see you fly!
  • Communication is a super power we encourage in all our team members. We coach and support, but require people to have a strong base in written and verbal communication.
  • Attention to detail — you’re proud of your work, and you will tell a colleague if they have something in their teeth!
  • Demonstrated the ability to learn, adapt and work as part of a team. We want to know you can be a sales leader and own your work — that’s pride in a job well done!
