Project Director - Live Events Agency


£60k +





Job Description

Truely an agency with a personality all it's own - a fairly new kid on the block – but boy have they already packed a punch in the live events market! Now back to their fast growth trajectory, as their clients love to work with them – and you will too! The team work hard together and their inspirational MD ensures they play hard together too, and is always ensuring they get proper treat and relax time as work should also be fun!  A happy team is a brilliant team!

This really lovely agency (fairly small and boutique) have a rather special culture which their clients love, and emanates from their open, natural style and collaborative and creative approach. And their excellent track record of delivering great live event solutions. They have become particularly successful with cloud-based corporates who love them for their ability to craft and deliver impactful and successful events for them, events that deliver the reach they need in the real world – and for the approachable and reliable way they work to ensure the delivery of brilliantly crafted and executed events.  Here you’ll work on events for the hottest tech/cloud clients around, and with a really fab team, burgeoning with energy, enthusiasm and talent!

The agency are looking for a switched-on, proactive Project Director to add to the team – and to  take the lead on live event projects for their fabulous tech/cloud based clients – some of our best known cloud-based household names. You’ll own and lead on big projects and clients, leading project teams across all aspects of the event, from creative to production and logistics. You’ll also take a key role in managing, mentoring and developing the inhouse team. For your projects you’ll be the Director from start to finish, run the budget (Procim), critical path and direct all aspects of delivery, and be the client contact, confidant and collaborator thoughout.

We’re looking for someone bright, talented, experienced and forward thinking – on an upward trajectory just like the agency.  You’ll of course need to have a background in live events, across a broad creative production focussed range of formats - and for this senior level role, will have a proven track record of delivering large multi-faceted events, for major corporate clients. Tech sector background is great, ideal but not essential.  You will however need:

  • Minimum 7 years’ experience in event delivery (with at least 1 year as Event/Project Director)
  • Event Agency background (with experience across large f2f events, virtual and hybrid)
  • Proven experience in directing and managing large-scale corporate events
  • Extensive budget management experience (ideally including multi-currency) up to £3m
  • Experience in leading multi-functional/cross disciplined teams (across creative, tech production, logistics etc)
  • Extensive client management experience, with large corporates, ideally including from within the tech/cloud-based space
  • Extensive live event experience across a range of projects large and small
  • Experience of virtual platforms, virtual and hybrid events
  • Mentor to junior members of the team, keen to and able to nurture and develop their skills
  • Desirable software knowledge: Procim/Google docs
  • Being multilingual would be beneficial
  • Excellent interpersonal and communication skills
  • Great to work with

We know there are a lot of agency roles out there – but they’re not all with an agency like this! If you’re looking for that place that matches you to a tee, to work with a team of similar outlook and energy, to feel that you are valued and really important to the business, then this could just be the right agency for you! P.S. They also finish early on a Friday!
