Event Coordinator / Commercial Event Ops Officer (venue)
Fantastic 1st job for a "star" Events/Hospitality Management Graduate! High-profile London venue - big commercial event team to learn from!
Well known heritage venue, performance space and visitor attraction in central London. The venue complex has several spaces that can accommodate 20-2,000+ people and can be hired on an exclusive or individual area/space basis.
This is a "really" exciting permanent job working in the commercial events & venue hire team on both corporate and private client events (big awards evenings, concerts, drinks receptions, corporate parties, conferences, large company meetings & AGMs, brand activations, street festivals, music competitions, special events and film & photo shoots).
As Commercial Events Officer, you'll support the Managers within the Commercial Events Operations team and will be involved in all aspects of event planning and delivery from initial enquiry to on-site event delivery including:-
- Assisting with initial venue booking enquiries and conducting site visits
- Preparing contracts & event documentation (including entering data on the event booking system, amending / updating venue hire documentation and financial admin such as invoices, deposits etc)
- Client liaison / communication (with guidance from the Commercial Event Managers)
- Internal and external supplier coordination for catering, AV & production, flowers, theming & decoration and furniture
- On the day event preparation & set-up and on-site event management & delivery
You will also support on venue promotion and marketing and although there is a separate sales team your role sits within the Commercial Division so you'll all be working towards maximising venue hire revenue and reaching the departmental targets. This is very customer service and client facing role.
You'll be a super-star grad (Event Management or Hospitality Management degree) or a 2nd jobber within the events and/or hospitality field. You'll need around 6-12 months related experience (hospitality, event management, venue operations, event administration) and be someone who has bags of common sense and is operationally minded.
You'll also need to be a real people person with excellent customer service skills and be keen and eager to learn / progress in the events & hospitality industries.
From a personality and work ethic point of view we're looking for a super organized, accurate and very detailed individual who is enthusiastic, cheerful and hardworking and someone who is a good problem solver with a proactive and can-do approach.
This is an amazing opportunity for an equally amazing candidate who is looking for their 1st or 2nd job in events / hospitality.
