Organisation: Historic Environment Scotland

Salary: £30,539-£37,131

The Hospitality and Events team is part of HESe (Historic Environment Scotland
Enterprises) which is the commercial arm of HES. The Hospitality and Events team’s
remit is to source, develop and facilitate commercial, corporate and one-off events; to source and contract weddings and to deliver all catering across the whole HES estate.
Within this team, your role as Event Sales Executive is to drive sales and deliver
corporate and commercial events across the estate. You’ll be responsible for driving
corporate event business (Mainly into Edinburgh Castle and Stirling Castle), but will
also look to drive wedding business at these sites and other ancillary events such as pre-opening tours, private hires, theatre, cafes, catering vendors and larger scale public events.

You will report directly to the Hospitality and Events Manager, assist with monthly
forecasting and business/finance updates and assisting with the delivery of targets
and objectives for events and catering within those events.

some flexibility with working from home. The role will therefore involve travel around
Scotland and the UK and occasional international travel.
