Due to continued expansion, an exciting opportunity has arisen to join an award-winning event management company based in the heart of Staffordshire.

We are looking to appoint at Account Director level a Business Development Manager to drive forward two key areas of our business:

  • A new role, with the autonomy to develop our existing “Direct Client” relationships with an emphasis on the full events service offering that KDM provide, requiring a proactive approach with senior level client contacts. Any clients or contacts that you can bring with you would of course be an advantage.
  • Working in conjunction with our existing team, to help strengthen our venue partnerships by regularly visiting hotels & conference centres.

About KDM Events:

Established in 1990, and winner of the Gold Award for “Best Event Provider” three years running at the M&IT Awards, our team of 25 specialise in organising and delivering a vast range of corporate events – from conferences and roadshows, finding venues & away days, to team-building and themed parties.

About the individual:

  • A confident individual, adept at cultivating/developing relationships both over the phone & face to face, with senior level client contacts.
  • A minimum of 5 years relevant events industry experience is a must, and strong preference will be given to candidates coming from an agency background or position.
  • You must be able to work without constant direction, be self-motivated and a commitment to your career is vital!

Working patterns, salary & progression:

  • A competitive salary shall be offered, in addition to company bonus scheme along with mileage, pension & laptop etc - holiday entitlement is 25 days plus Bank Holidays.
  • Whilst progression within the company is dependent on both company and individual performance – the role will suit an ambitious individual with the desire to further develop their career.
  • The role is a full-time & permanent position, based in our Trentham office and working a 40-hour week Monday to Friday 8.30am to 5pm.
  • However as the role will have a large element of client & venue meetings, the ability to work from home can be considered & flexibility in the number of days worked is also a possibility for the right individual.
