About Us

We're a highly successful award-winning events company based in the heart of Brighton.  Through our brands, The Stag Company and Hen Heaven, we provide fantastic day and night time activities with accommodation across the UK and Europe for groups.

The Job

There's no call-calling involved with this role (relief!), so you'll be working with warm-leads to sell fun products that you'll experience yourself throughout the year on our educational trips.  You'll manage your won pipeline, maximise upsell & cross-sell opportunities and create a really positive experience for our customers.  You'll be given monthly targets and annual KPI targets for which you'll receive commission & bonuses if they're achieved.


You'll be target driven and have great sales skills with a real desire to achieve.  Your communication skills will be excellent with a high degree of self-motivation.  Resilient, able to cope under pressure with the ability to work independently or as part of the team, you'll flourish in a competitive environment.  Ideally, you'll have reservation or booking system knowledge, with account management and travel industry experience - all this is by no means essential!

You'll be available to work 37.5 hours per week, Monday to Friday usually with a Saturday shift once every 3 weeks.

In return

Your basic salary will be £20k with the opportunity to earn uncapped commission (OTE £30K), with 20 days holiday, 8 bank holidays and an additional day's leave awarded for each year worked to a max of 25 days.  You'll also be eligible for the following benefits:

  • Learning and development opportunities
  • UK and European travel to experience our great weekends
  • Childcare vouchers
  • Subsidised gym membership
  • Pension scheme
  • Discounted holiday stays
  • Additional holiday allowance scheme
  • Social club that organises lots of great, fun events
  • Annual bonus opportunity
  • Recommend a friend rewards

Preferred experience (but by no means essential):

Please send your application with covering letter to us - we look forward to hearing from you.
