Business Development Executive
Permanent - Full Time
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.
Please note this role is being sourced directly and we are not accepting applications via external recruitment agencies.
Location: Hamilton, New Zealand
Closing Date: Monday, 27 November 2017

Bluebridge is setting off in an exciting new direction, and you can get us on our way. A recent change in ownership and management has given us a new focus on business development which is where you come in.
Because passenger ferry crossings are a huge growth area for us, we’ve created the brand new role of Sales Manager to make sure we reach our full potential. You’ll work on building those sales, growing our market share, and generally raising the profile of Bluebridge in the tourism industry.
It’s going to be a great role for someone who enjoys building relationships. We want you to get on board with travel agents, i-SITES and tour operators all around the country and even overseas anyone who sells Cook Strait crossings to the general public.
You’ll bring a significant amount of experience as a Sales Manager in the travel and tourism industry, enough to enable you to get right in and start getting results. So it would be a big plus if you’ve already got relationships with some of these tourism industry operators and know a bit about tourism industry-related IT.
A sales-focused, target-oriented type, you’ll be someone who can quickly gain respect and trust and make people want to do business with you. This isn’t a role for someone who takes a slow-burn approach to sales you need to be engaging, proactive, and determined.
It’s the kind of role a seasoned salesperson will jump at, because you’ll quickly see the difference your efforts are making, and be able to celebrate your success. And if you’re keen to walk in the door and just go for it, we want to talk to you.
