We are seeking to recruit  an Exhibition and Sponsorship Officer to join our Marketing & Communications team based in Coventry.  The key function of this role is to promote and market the value of sponsorship and exhibiting at CIH events to the breadth of the housing sector.

We are looking for an ambitious and proactive person with experience in sales and exhibition development and delivery.  You will need to be experienced in the use of e-marketing opportunities, such as email and social engagement, as well as having a solid sales background and be skilled in the use of a CRM.

We need you to be an excellent communicator and successful at managing relationships with a wide range of stakeholders, including our internal event team, corporate partners and exhibition contractors.
