H3 Group Hamilton

Business Development Executive - Business Events

H3’s Business Events Team is part of the "engine room" of our operation, leading the negotiations and booking of the business events held at our world-class venues – Claudelands, Seddon Park and FMG Stadium Waikato.

One of our fantastic Business Development Executives (Business Events) is stepping down after making significant contribution to what we do and deciding to shift to Australia to explore new opportunities. We're looking for a competent, talented and committed business event professional to replace her.

This is a crucial role for H3. You will be responsible for liaising with our valuable local, regional and national business clients, managing those important relationships, and developing leads to and connections with other organisations which see the value in bringing their events to our venues. Negotiation and sales skills are essential to succeed in this role.

Positioning our brand is a vital aspect of our Business Events team, which works closely alongside our Marketing Manager and her team to make sure we're always putting H3's "best foot forward" to secure business.

Once you've nailed those deals, you'll need to work closely with the other teams in our operation to make sure the events run smoothly and all your clients' needs are met. From beginning to end, you will be a vital cog in the business events wheel, which means communication and adaptability are also very important.

Reporting to the H3 Business Development & Sales Manager – Business Events, this role is with one of the most diverse and high-profile parts of Hamilton City Council.

If you feel you have what this position takes, we're keen to hear from you.

All candidates will be notified of the outcome on their application via email. Short-listed candidates will be required to complete an interview process, reference checks, pre-employment medical and drug assessments and Ministry of Justice or Police vetting check.
