Your role will focus on growing sponsorships for the events held by this medical charity that supports doctors and healthcare professionals with extensive educational programmes.
With over 350 events each year, this is a busy and exciting place to work and you will not only work with existing sponsors to develop relationships but also with colleagues such as event managers to ensure your Sponsors have the best possible experience at each event and feel their brand has been represented faithfully.

- Be in charge of raising invoices, agreements and contracts as required
- Provide support to the in-house events team with regards to sponsorship packages
For this role, we are looking for someone ideally with some sponsorship or event co-ordinating experience. However, above all else, you are proactive in approach, highly communicative, personable and with excellent organisational skills. We are looking for someone with enthusiasm, energy and passion who would relish the chance to combine client relationship management with sales and development.
