You'll be working alongside other event officers (each have responsibility for their own dedicated portfolio of clients & events) and the role is more “venue/landlord operations based” than it is end-to-end planning & delivering of events and as such it will involve a significant amount of advising clients / prospective event organisers as well as the reviewing of event & venue-hire applications, cross-checking of compliance, H&S, licenses & insurance, crowd control measure & security, overseeing of set-up & build and on-site event delivery as well as post event site inspection and reconciliation.

Events will range from indoor events such as conferences, product launches, meetings, debates & talks, exhibitions and receptions at City Hall to (on occasion) public facing 1-3 day arts and cultural events, photo & film shoots, protests & demonstrations.

This role will suit a Senior Coordinator / Events Officer / Event Producer with a minimum of 3 years’ experience working on indoor and outdoor public facing events with strong operations skills and exceptionally good H&S knowledge (an Industry qualification in Health & Safety and Personal License are desirable)
