We publish across social channels, and have a twice weekly newsletter, the ESI Dispatch.
  • ESI Events - We run esports focused events and have produced more esports business events than any other, globally. These have included the ESI Forum Series, ESI Super Forum, Betting on Esports Conference, ESI Birmingham, the ESI Hall of Fame and ESI London. We offer white label events services too.

What we are looking for:-

We are looking for somebody to join the sales team at Esports Insider. This includes generating and pushing sales across our industry and business focused events, and across our services (ESI Media, Consultancy and Connect).

We need somebody who is well-versed in, you guessed it, both sales and esports. Ideally we would like somebody who has worked in the esports industry and has a strong network and contact list already, but we are open to newcomers who have the right skill-set and attitude.

The candidate must be motivated to work in esports, have proven experience in a sales role, be sociable, tireless and professional.

Somebody who has a broad understanding of esports is a major plus, and who understands how the ecosystem works, the main players, stakeholders and so on and so forth.

Being creative is also a massive plus, we are in the process of expanding our services and are always open to new ideas on this front in terms of events and much more.

You will report in directly to Sam Cooke (MD and Co-Founder at Esports Insider) and David Knight (Group Business Director at SBC Global).

Responsibilities:-

  • Generate and push sales on all Esports Insider services (Events, services and media)
  • Come up with new ideas for ESI services and partnerships and help to deliver on these
  • Build and maintain relationships with stakeholders throughout and around the esports industry, all the while representing Esports Insider and helping to ensure the positive growth and awareness of the brand
  • Represent ESI at industry events, and tournaments etc. where needed
  • Help to promote ESI events and services

We offer:-

  • A competitive salary plus a healthy commission on all sales
  • The opportunity to be part of the rapidly expanding (and quite fun…) esports industry in a South-West London office
  • Travel and attend events on our behalf
  • Grow your reputation throughout the industry and make plenty of strong contacts
  • A chance for your own ideas to come to fruition and to ‘grow with the company’
