  • Experienced in Sales: Candidates should have a strong background in sales, with a proven ability to engage with clients and close deals effectively. Experience in event sales or in the renewable energy sector can be particularly advantageous, but is not essential.

The role offers substantial freedom to negotiate and structure deals, including the discretion to offer discounts to close sales effectively.
