Leading global bank have an amazing opening for a Corporate Hospitality & Ticketing Executive or an EA / PA with significant experience of buying in and handling corporate hospitality packages & tickets!
You’ll be working in the busy events team of this prestigious global investment bank although it will be you and one other Hospitality & Ticketing Coordinator who handle all the Corporate Hospitality & Ticketing (sports, arts & cultural) requests for the business across the UK and EMEA regions.
You’ll be acting in an advisory, recommendation, ticketing management and guardianship capacity for the corporate hospitality across most major fixtures (Wimbledon, Rugby Tournaments, F1, Cricket Series) as well as hospitality for leading Summer Arts Exhibitions, Flower Shows, Opera & Arts premieres and major cultural & social events.
Your role will be 95% office based and heavily systems, processes, compliance and administratively focused. You’ll be dealing with hundreds of hospitality requests from across the business and managing the online ticketing request system as well as handling corporate hospitality package procurement, ticket co-ordination, processing requests, ticket allocation, corporate hospitality merchandise, billing and overall event / hospitality management.
You’ll be a sort of corporate hospitality guru for the bank (i.e. you’ll know when every major fixture, event, exhibition, performance takes place and what levels of hospitality can be obtained) and will manage the huge demand for tickets and packages for business managers and internal clients, keeping track (in detailed spreadsheets and online systems) of corporate hospitality availability, requests, ticket issue and re-charging back to departments and internal clients. You’ll also work closely with key suppliers (Keith Prowse, Ticketmaster etc) and will network/source new suppliers to provide the most up to date and cost effective corporate hospitality solutions.
You’ll be a confident, strong willed but calm, diplomatic and patient individual who “knows and understands” the corporate hospitality industry and has a minimum of 3-4 years’ hospitality related experience. You’ll have good ticketing and project management experience, at least two full seasons experience of the corporate hospitality industry and must also be good at advising and recommending (and saying “no” when necessary!). And finally…as with all in-house corporate roles ….you’ll need to be polished, professional, meticulous, pro-active, hard-working, very client facing, articulate and mega organised and you must be systems, processes and compliance focused. Strong communications skills are essential for this role and you’ll need to be a real “people person” too.
This is a fantastic temp to perm job opportunity and a hugely busy, fast-paced and exciting role where you’ll be juggling your time to manage requests, allocations and tickets as well as purchasing specific corporate hospitality, advising and recommending, liaising with internal clients about their corporate hospitality needs, maintaining detailed spreadsheets, keeping track of budgets and re-charges as well as keeping on top of the corporate hospitality, sporting, arts and social events calendar.
