You must be used to a face paced client servicing focused environment, have amazing attention to detail, be able to juggle multiple projects at any one time and at the outset be the hands-on delivery person until the new division is fully up and running and further developed (NB you will be only events person at the very beginning).
You'll already have a broad and varied skill set of end2end event management (including delivery). advising clients, creating bespoke events proposals, building & growing supplier relationships (AV, caterers, florists etc..), negotiation, Thought Leadership & developing internal knowledge of event management across the business, cross-team liaison, establishing processes & systems and stakeholder management (financial services, global corporates, professional services-based clients) as well as the energy, enthusiasm and knowledge to drive forward a new division/company offering.
From a personality point of view this company will suit an outgoing, motivated, curious, enthusiastic and tenacious individual who is fun to work with as well as being very professional, mega-detailed, super organised and exceptionally customer service focused.
