Head of Event Planning

Location: Oxfordshire

Salary: £35,000 - £50,000

Industry: Creative

Job posted: 25/10/2020

Type: Contract (12 month)

I am looking for an event professional, to join my client on a 12 month (mat cover) contract.

When you’re partnering with some of the biggest names in the automotive industry, it’s important that you’re fully immersed in it, and have extensive experience already. As this is for a fixed term, you need to be able to hit the ground running.

You will be leading the project management team, ensuring everything is delivered as ‘best-practice’ and continuing the amazing service their clients receive. The team have been working between home and the office, but have a very collaborative approach, so enjoy working safely together. Living within commuting distance to Banbury is going to be very beneficial, as that is where the office is based.

Times have of course changed, but our client has successfully adapted and is still delighting their clients with new vehicle launches, large scale chauffeuring programmes, VIP media events and VIP customer events. However there are going to be huge amounts of challenges that are yet unknown, so being able to overcome them with enthusiasm and gusto is incredibly important.

This is an international role and you will be expected to travel across the globe, supporting the team and acting in a customer-facing position.

You’ll be in close collaboration with the directors and international office, but you’re going to control and oversee the project function. Strong people and project management is extremely important for this role.

I have a full specification I would be delighted to share with you after our initial screening conversation.

You’ll be on around £35,000 – £50,000 depending on your experience level. 25 days holiday + 8 bank holidays and healthcare, too.

I’d love to talk to you about this one. If you haven’t got an up to date CV, don’t worry, you can just send me what you do have (will@ox-seven.com) or get in touch another way – I know not everyone has one to hand. My number is on our site, along with LinkedIn details to connect (Will Grashoff).

Every applicant will receive a response.
