“You’ve got to admit your job has hit a spot of bad form

You used to love it but now it’s getting kinda lukewarm

Wouldn’t you agree you need a change of scenery

Instead of going through the motions like machinery”

That word scenery is a key part of these paraphrased lyrics to Oui 3’s track “Break From The Old Routine”, as it plays a major part in this opportunity.

You see, the scenery is only what the audience sees, yet you know how much goes into being the person responsible for ensuring the production, technical and project management aspect of the event is on point.

You also know it takes a huge amount of client hand holding and nodding through all of those meetings where their “inner creative” comes out, yet all you think is ‘not with your budget, are you crazy and do you even know what our space looks like” yet somehow you make it work on time, on budget and on message.

The song also came to mind as this role is 100% a hybrid role, and as such will only suit you if you’re looking to stop being a cog in the machine, going through the motions and doing the same thing, every day you want to start being front and centre across all departments.  

The dictionary definition of the word hybrid as an adjective is as follows:

‘of mixed character; composed of different elements’

With that in mind, these are the types of elements you’ll be responsible for in this role that hopefully sets your pulse racing

  • Production
  • Technical
  • Client Services
  • Relationship building
  • Project Management
  • Budget
  • Team leadership

This iconic Live Events venue hosts everything you can imagine, conferences, award shows, dinners, VIP parties, meetings, exhibitions and everything in between and with you and your team of 8 being the front, middle and back end, it’s a big gig for the right lead.  

So, if you're driven by the opportunity to conduct the orchestra rather than ‘ting’ the triangle when instructed, call me, Robert 01273 915123 or send me a message to find out more about this chance to take your career where you want it to go.

If you don’t have an up to date CV, don’t worry, we can deal with that later.
