Job Description

Experienced Events Manager needed for this high-profile world-renowned venue – hosts a huge range of events, from premieres, receptions, graduation ceremonies, conferences, brand activations and everything in between!

COMPANY
Well known and large-scale Arts venue, cultural hub, performance space and visitor attraction in central London.  To work here is a fantastic opportunity to experience working at one of London’s most famous and iconic venues, and with leading corporate and media clients.

ROLE
Working in the close knit Commercial Events team you will be working with both corporate and private clients on an exciting and very diverse range of events including big awards evenings, premieres, drinks receptions, corporate parties, conferences, large company meetings & AGMs, brand activations, street festivals,  special events and for filming & photo shoots. The venue complex has several varied spaces that can accommodate 20-2,000+ people and can be hired on an exclusive or individual area/space basis, and will often be hosting multiple events at one time.
In this role you will look after your client from start to finish, and be responsible for the operational event coordination and implementation of commercial events (for both internal events and private hires) including venue booking and set-up, H&S, room dressing and catering, client liaison and follow-up, to ensure the successful delivery of all events, liaising with other internal teams throughout. You will also support on venue promotion and marketing and although there is a separate sales team your role sits within the Commercial Division so you’ll all be working towards maximising venue hire revenue and reaching the departmental targets.

YOU
You’ll be an outgoing, confident and hugely client facing events professional with a minium 2-3 years venue operations experience ideally gained from working for a heritage or unique venue (however candidates with a big multi-space hotel venue background will also be considered providing they have strong event operations knowledge and are currently in a role that involves managing incoming events from start to finish). You’ll need to have a good understanding of H&S for events and knowledge of CAD or of other floorplan design software packages would be very useful (but not essential).
You’ll also need to have strong commercial awareness and be someone who can engage confidently and diplomatically with potential venue hire clients, external event organisers & promoters, suppliers, contractors and internal colleagues at all levels.

This is a fantastic permanent opportunity for a talented Commercial Events Manager or fast-rising venue Event Co-ordinator, who has solid event operations skills and a background of working venue side on incoming events, and loves working with varied clients and their equally varied events!
