Our client, a national and well-established hospitality business based in Cheltenham is looking for an Area Sales Manager to join them on a fixed term contract which for the right candidate, could be a permanent role. Heading up a small team, you would be responsible for the analysis and propulsion of sales within the Gloucestershire area and further afield if required.

Working on a full time basis, and reporting to the regional sales manager, your responsibilities will include business development and fostering long-standing relationships with businesses in the area in order to close sales and build a network of contacts to benefit the business. You will be required to grow an in-depth understanding of the hospitality market and be able to report on and gain insight of the commercial arena. You will also be responsible for the planning and designating of funds, negotiating of proposals and contracts as well as working to meet key performance indicators and maintaining a pipeline of revenue.

We are looking for an individual with excellent rapport building and negotiation skills along with an good attention to detail and ability to prioritise your workload. Previous sales experience is essential in order to be considered for this role as well as a willingness to travel throughout the UK as the need arises to represent the business. Additionally you will have management experience and display a can-do attitude, along with an ability to be flexible and see the bigger picture of the commercial market.

It would be desirable for you to be a graduate and have knowledge of marketing systems and property management systems – as well as hospitality experience, however this is not vital to be successful in securing this post.
