Candidate Specification

We’ve identified some qualities and motivations that we believe are important for this role. Consider them a few starting points to give applicants a feel for what we’re looking for from our newest team member. 

  • Relevant sales and marketing experience is desired but not essential. We’ll work with you to enhance this knowledge if new challenges excite you.  
  • Excellent presentation skills. You don’t need stage experience but storytelling is an important aspect of this role. We believe in capturing the engagement of prospects, not demanding it! 
  • Knowledge and experience of Hubspot or similar CRM systems is desirable. You might also like to use other systems and we’d be keen to hear from anyone who likes to have fun with digital tools and apps. 
  • Experience in working with Canva or other design tools (photoshop, illustrator, adobe etc.) is a big benefit. If you have an eye for design (interior, onscreen or with a paintbrush) we will find ways for you to collaborate with our designer. 
  • Can-do attitude, drive and ambition. We want you to be happy every day at Ticketsolve but some days will be more challenging than others so we are looking for someone who is willing to jump over hurdles with us to get to the end of the finishing line together. 
  • Excellent literacy skills, including copywriting and attention to detail. No string left undone and no typo left unnoticed! You’ll be supported here by our Head of Marketing but it’s important to enjoy copywriting, puns and poetry (you might want to look at our Twitter profile if you’re still reading 😉)
  • Excellent time management skills and prioritising skills. Time is our most valuable asset and we believe in making the most of it! 
  • We’re a blend of hybrid and remote colleagues so working online with your team means bringing a different kind of energy. If you are working from home, you need to be highly self-motivated, adaptable and enjoy all dynamics of teamwork.
