Overview

Sporta Tours provide bespoke sports tours to schools, clubs, and elite teams (including England Cricket), as well as event marketing & management services. Sporta Tours are seeking an “Account & Marketing Executive” intern to assist in these fields. Specifically, the intern will work on a number of accounts helping to coordinate sports tours to our destinations around the world, the marketing of our tours, and generally assisting our whole team.

Account Executive

The successful applicant will be supporting the Sales team with the putting together of sales quotations and presentations. In time, this will involve the pricing of tours as well as creating interesting itineraries with the help of our staff on the ground in each of our destinations and then liaising with the customer on the details of their tour to ensure they get the experience they are looking for.

You will also be responsible for regular contact with the client in order to keep them abreast of the content of their tour, managing their expectations, and performing pre-tour checks with them. As your role in the business develops, you may travel to your client’s location to give presentations. The role may also involve expanding on the destinations you coordinate and travelling abroad to your destinations when required.

Marketing

With the assistance of our Marketing team, you will be responsible for keeping all marketing collateral up to date, creating marketing collateral for new initiatives, maintaining our contact database and sending out emails to our schools and club contacts. You will be the lead contributor to our social media accounts and keep the website up to date with news items (with assistance when required from our website manager). This role may also see you getting involved in our tours and events for professional teams.
