Employment Type: Full-Time
The Sponsorship Collective is looking for someone to join our growing team of consultants in Ottawa or Toronto. We are way more interested in fit and personality than we are in a specific skillset or employment background.
In other words, we are hiring for passion, not experience.
You have experience selling sponsorship and you love every aspect of sponsorship sales…yes, even the dreaded cold call (but you know how to warm up a cold call, so you rarely have to make them anyway).
Building activations, servicing your sponsors and helping sponsors leverage their investment is what gets you out of bed in the morning.
If this is you, then we want to hear from you!
Our main office (which is a remote office, by the way) is in Ottawa and our clients are all over the place, with particular focus on Toronto.
Whether you are located in Ottawa or Toronto, you will be working remotely with lots of face time at coffee shops and, on occasion, in the office.
This position will include the following:
Client work (70%):
- Prospect research
- Follow up calls
- Negotiating with brands
- Brainstorming sponsorship opportunities
- Asking for the sale
- Reporting on progress to clients
- Asset valuation
- Strategy development
- Presenting findings to clients by webinar and in person
New client acquisition and marketing (20%):
- Attending networking events
- Meeting with prospective clients to determine needs
- Following up with prospective clients
Boring stuff (10%):
- Internal meetings
We have a training process that we will guide you through, making you an expert in our process in no time. This role is for you if you enjoy talking to people, are happy to pick up the phone and call a client (or a prospect) and enjoy a relaxed work environment with good people.
We love what we do, we love our clients, we work hard and we have fun.
In order to apply, submit a cover letter and resume along with your target salary range to Lindsay McGrath firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will be conducting interviews as applications are received and until the position has been filled.
