The challenge
Acknowledged as one of the country's top conference and exhibition venues, Harrogate International Centre (HIC) is a place for people and organisations to show what they do best. Now we're giving you the chance to put your exceptional sales and events expertise in the spotlight.

This high-level role is pivotal to moving our business forward. Leading a sales events and marketing team, you'll enhance both performance and growth, and ensure we strengthen our already impressive industry standing.

The role
A key member of the management team, you'll develop and implement sales and event planning strategies that ensure our long-term competitiveness. This includes identifying and researching new markets and ensuring that professional sales and planning processes are embedded into the culture of the organisation. You'll also be responsible for setting targets and for the management of a sales and marketing budget.
