Detail is everything.

Your eye for the thorough planning before the big wedding day, or the simple extra touches for a small meeting of 5 in a boardroom. Whatever the occasion, you know how to make it smooth and pain-free. There is going to be a heavy focus on weddings for the rest of the year, with 40 booked in already. So having experience running and organising weddings is an absolute prerequisitte.

People dont want to worry about when the drinks are coming out or if there are enough seats, so youre going to have everything pre-empted before it becomes a question. Youll recognise potential problems and youll be a quick fixer, finding the easiest (but the best) way around issues that may pop up.

Since youll be managing, youll need to have been doing this for a while. Whether its Weddings, C&B or M&E, all events experience will be valuable and will come in handy. Yes, youll be delegating jobs between the team but youre going to need to be handson, too. People work their best for people they respect and earning respect is easy you just need to be a real part of the team for that.

You’ll be joining a company which places huge emphasis on having a family feel – they want to be a champion of your wellbeing. How can we expect you to give your all if we don’t give ours?

You’ll get £28,000 – £30,000 plus your usual holiday and pension. Free meals on shift, a complimentary spa day, free use of the leisure facilities and a discount on group stays and F&B.

If you are interested or want to know more, call me, send me a message, DM, carrier pigeon – whatever is easiest. We encourage anyone who feels they are suitable to apply, we love seeing diversity in our applicants. We use specialist technology to ensure there is no gender bias in our adverts.

Every applicant will receive a response. We sometimes make mistakes and miss things from CVs, so you will be given an opportunity to receive feedback and discuss the role in more detail if you feel necessary.
