I have partnered with a leading energy organisation who are looking for an individual to take ownership of the various events they host throughout the year. This role requires the individual to be responsible for the overall concept of the conference, and the successful delivery of the event.

This will be a strategic position with extensive growth potential moving forward.


Client Details

My client are working at the forefront of the energy sector. They maintain a detailed overview of all developments being made, and provide companies/individuals with relevant market insight.

One of the tools they utilise to reach their "fans" are their events. These are high-profile, exciting and continuing to grow.


Description

* Work closely with the Commercial Director to create the overall concept of the events; ensuring they are in-line with company strategy. After all, this is a huge marketing tool for my client!
* Define the agenda for the event - what will be discussed, which speaks will discuss it etc. Ensure they are informative, relevant and fun!
* Work with senior management to create the overall event concept/topical focus right through to the theme for specific sessions
* Source partners/speakers and utilise your smashing network to ensure an outstanding line-up.
* Manage the events coordinator who is a "logistics magician".
* Identify other ways for my client to gain revenue from their events.


Profile

* You will be a star! Relevant experience in hosting events (ideally high-profile) will be important for this role. (sadly, hosting a friends birthday party doesn't quite suffice)
* You will be incredibly passionate about the energy sector - with reasonably strong network to draw upon. Keeping up-to-date with market trends, new developments, and even Greta Thunberg's travels will not be boring for you!
* You will be confident utilising a strong level of autonomy to act independently and "make things work".
* Previous experience in a strategic/commercial position within Energy would stand you in good stead for this position.
* As my client expands internationally, you will ideally be excited at the prospect of hosting conferences overseas as well!


Job Offer

A chance to be involved in some awesome conferences.

A chance to work in the best industry on the planet!
