We are looking for people who can help us promote corporate membership of The Yorkshire Society to the business community of Yorkshire.
The Yorkshire Society is one of Yorkshire’s best kept secrets. It’s a not-for-profit organisation that celebrates and promotes everything that’s great about Yorkshire. Now in its 40th year, it has over 5,000 members, some very well-known Vice Presidents, established contacts and big ambitions.
Membership has been focussed on individuals who love Yorkshire with member recruitment in the main by word-of-mouth. As a result, The Society is a real community with lots of spirit.
There are c400,000 business enterprises in Yorkshire, micro to multinational, but for all its 40 years, corporate membership of The Yorkshire Society has been largely limited to those businesses who have a personal connection with it or who stumbled across it.
Now, we want to pro-actively take The Yorkshire Society into the vast reservoir of Yorkshire businesses and encourage them to join.
To do that, we need pro-active people to help us market The Yorkshire Society to the business community in Yorkshire and promote membership of it face to face (or just over the phone) to those businesses who share our love of the county.
This is not a hard sell. There are both emotional and rational reasons to join The Yorkshire Society, with both tangible and intangible benefits. Therefore, the right person is, first and foremost, passionate about and proud of Yorkshire – just like the businesses we want as corporate members, and just like us. They are also self-motivated, friendly, persuasive, honest and reliable. Experience in sales is obviously an advantage but not essential.
