Job Description:

Haymarket Events, part of Haymarket Media Group, is looking for an enthusiastic, hard working, all round events coordinator who can keep a team of busy events managers in order.
This position is a fixed term contract for 9 months which could lead to a possible extension.
The main focus of the role will be to provide administrative support to the team of 7 who deliver 25 annual events.
You will work as part of the team reporting to one of the Group Events Managers and their team of events managers who will direct your workload. The role is very diverse, it is hard work but also fun! 
Responsibilities will include, but not limited to:

  • Organising meetings and judging days
  • Dealing with queries from entrants, delegates, sponsors and dinner attendees
  • Maintaining databases
  • Updating information on our websites
  • Chasing outstanding invoices and answering invoice queries.

The position is based in Twickenham although there may be on occasion some out of hours work, especially around the build up to the events.
This entry level role is suited to someone looking to start their career in the events industry.  The Events Coordinator will have an excellent telephone manner, be able to multi task and unparalleled organisation skills. A strong command of written and spoken English, as well as strong numeracy skills will be essential to the success of the role.
Previous knowledge of the events industry is a benefit, a degree in events management would be ideal, but is not a prerequisite for the role, although experience within administration is essential. The successful candidate will have excellent computer skills, especially in Microsoft Word and Excel.
