Senior Project Manager (Events)
Salary: £33,000 - £37,000
Job posted: 17/02/2020
Type: Full Time
What does Mary Berry and events project management have in common?
Not much, we’ll give you that.
But, just like on the Bake Off, you’re going to be used to having show stopping ideas and want your stage to show these off.
Imagine that feeling of getting a Hollywood handshake?
Unlike the Bake Off though, you don’t get the chance to get the golden handshake as you are being stifled, and your boss isn’t Paul Hollywood. Mostly because this position has nothing to do with baking, and more about nailing the execution of events in the automotive industry.
From proposals to pitches, development to delivery – you’re the go-to for it all.
Being a senior point of contact for both your clients and your team, you’ll understand the importance of a clear message and not getting things lost in translation. After all, it saves you from panic picking up the pieces when something falls through.
Having everything ticking over perfectly and managing it from start to finish means you’ll not be scrambling when you forgot to put the jam in your Victoria sponge. You’ll have already planned which supplier it’s coming from, how much you need, when it needs to go on and ensured that it was as delicious as you were promised.
For this one, it’s important that you have experience of conference production, delegate management and live events (like awards ceremonies, exhibitions, board meetings, product launches).
The first thing I’ll look for in any application is your event agency background, as this is a need to have for the role.
You will get a salary of £33k – £37k, a good amount of ‘you’ time with the 25 holiday days on top of your 8 bank holidays. Being in events, there will be some travel within the UK and overseas from time to time and some evening and weekend work required.
Let’s have a chat about it. You can send me a connection and a message on LinkedIn (Dan Beecher), or you can send me your CV through the portal. If you’re a talker, my number is on our website.
