This role will include:-

  • Full end-to-end event management of corporate/B2B events held at external venues
  • Event planning & research, venue finding & venue liaison
  • Supplier coordination (AV, F&B, equipment hire etc.) 
  • Delegate registration management
  • Coordination of all event collateral (invites, programmes etc.)
  • Manage online filing/admin for each event
  • Updating information on website events pages
  • Budget management
  • Attendee recording & updating CRM
  • Post event reconciliation & analysis /reporting

NB: There will be a fair bit of travel in and around London with some overnight stays within the UK.

You’ll bring to the table a solid all-round events skill set (full 360 (end-to-end) event management, venue finding, supplier coordination, delegate registration management, on-site event delivery, budget management, updating event webpages, proof reading event marketing copy, admin and post event reconciliation & reporting) and be a fun and outgoing person who enjoys working with a dynamic and lively team in a fast paced corporate environment on a high turnover/volume of very high quality events.
