Head of Sales role
Experience Level
Contract Type
Full Time

This is a big role for an ambitious, creative and hard working individual, who is passionate about hospitality, events and entertainment. 


An opportunity to help Proud grow and expand, to take ownership of business and brand development strategy, inspire the team at Proud and improve internal systems, processes and planning. 

Proud is a small company, with high energy and high creativity. This is not a traditional corporate environment and will suit an original thinker, who is used to working independently and taking the initiative. You will need to get stuck in and have a ‘no job is too small’ attitude. The company has a flat hierarchy, and a family atmosphere, you will support and work closely with all departments, and it is important that you care about the business and the team, and that you work with loyalty, diligence and integrity. 

For the right candidate, this job has infinite scope for progression and there is a real opportunity to make an impact on an entrepreneurial business. 

Role: FT Mon-Friday either 9-6 or 10-7 with some weekend and evening work

Location: Strand Photography Gallery office, 32 John Adam St, London
