Job Details

 

ARE YOU READY TO TAKE THE NEXT STEP IN YOUR CAREER?

 

The Indiana Pacers and Indiana Fever (WNBA) are constantly looking for ticket sales professionals who want to be the very best in the industry.  Have you already had some success in ticket sales?  Are you looking to climb the sports industry ladder?  If your answer is yes to both of those questions, then this is the perfect job for you.

 

We’re looking for someone who is still on their rookie contract, but ready to take their game to the next level.  This top performer should be someone who is only satisfied with being #1 on the leaderboard and shares the Pacers goal of being the best in the business!

 

WE’RE TALKING ABOUT SELLOUTS!

 

The Pacers and Fever view their Group Sales team as the key to selling out games.  We fill the seats by finding groups of all sizes and incentivizing them to purchase as many tickets as possible by offering unique once-in-a-lifetime fan experiences. We target certain games by offering discounted tickets and added value for groups who bring 10 or more people.               

 

THE FUTURE IS BRIGHT

 

Off the court, our group sales department has a solid dynamic of all-star veterans working alongside up-and-coming draft picks who will lead our team to becoming one of the best group sales departments in the NBA. Will you be our next draft pick? 

 

THE X's AND O's

 

We scout out talented individuals who have a basic understanding of ticket sales coming in.  We will develop you into one of the best group sales reps in the NBA through training, practice, and career development so you can execute the plays.

 

We run a very efficient quick pace offense. We run the floor and attack the basket with an aggressive style of play. That’s why being in shape and training is critical to our success. Our style of play allows you to shine as an individual while helping our team achieve our goals.

 

You’ll be making phone calls, emailing, and meeting face to face with Pacers and Fever group prospects. You’ll develop and manage relationships while providing exemplary customer service. The majority of your time will be spent in the office, but you may work various community and in-arena events along with all of our Pacers and Fever home games. 

 

THE GAMEPLAN

 

1. Make 100+ contacts per day to group prospects with a focus on generating group ticket sales
2. Manage relationships with current clients while prospecting for new sales
3. Be available to work up to 40+ Pacers home games and Fever home games plus other shows and events as necessary
4. Other duties as assigned

 

ARE YOU OUR NEXT MVP?

 

We are working to develop the best ticket sales department in all of sports. Therefore, we will be very selective in who we add to our team. We’re looking for candidates who are competitive, coachable, detail-oriented, and who have the desire to climb to the top of the industry. If you’ve had some success in the past and think you can be an MVP candidate, you’re just who we’re looking for.
