The job involves undertaking a wide range tasks to ensure the smooth and efficient running of the events, including: preparation of conference materials and badges; dealing promptly with enquiries from event hosts, delegates, speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, partner organisations; and pro-active on-site event management tasks - dealing efficiently with delegates, speakers, venue staff and managing presentations.

As well as assisting other members of the team with their events the postholder will be required to lead on managing some events themselves. Raising invoices for a large event we are holding in June will also be required.

Successful candidates will be highly organised and have substantive experience of working on large events - both on-site and in the office.
Ability to prioritise while working on several projects concurrently is required.
Experience of using Eventsforce software would be beneficial but not mandatory.
Good verbal and communication skills are essential for the post and an ability to work well under pressure and to tight deadlines.

A flexible approach to work hours is required - the post will be based in our Waterloo office but will require travel to events and include overnight stays.

If this role is of interest please do apply with an up to date CV highlighting all your relevant experience.
