Event Manager - niche 'boutique' events agency - bespoke events & imaginative experiences for HNW individuals & top-notch corporate clients!

THE COMPANY

Long-established and very niche Event & Party Planning agency. London based with a small team of really creative and passionate event professionals who constantly keep surprising their mixed client base of HNW individuals and big global brands with innovative tailor-made experiences and special events.

THE ROLE

As Event Manager you'll be part of a small but exceptionally talented team comprising of senior event managers, event managers and coordinators/assistants all of whom report to the Owner / Director.

In this role you'll take full ownership of your own events & parties for HNW individuals and high-end corporate clients, starting from initial brief/incoming lead through to the detailed event planning & delivery (and everything in between!).

Your role will include handling incoming leads & event enquiries, client liaison and client relationship building (mostly repeat business), developing the brief (including research, initial planning and costing out) and taking everything forward once the client has signed on the dotted line. You'll upsell services & add-ons and be involved in some pitching & proposals but overall this is a 360 event management position working on a range of very be-spoke imaginative and creative events (mostly UK). Events will include awards, product launches, high-end corporate parties, black-tie charity events, weddings, tailor-made experiences, away-days & corporate hospitality (around the sporting & social calendar), private parties, concerts, receptions and one-off special events.

THE CANDIDATE

You'll be an immaculately well-presented, creative and super organised Events professional (Event Manager, Event Producer, Event Project Manager, Event Executive or Senior Event Coordinator) with a minimum of 3 years' experience in end-to-end event management working on bespoke and tailor-made special events, parties & experiences.

Ideally, you'll have an agency background and will have worked with corporate clients as well as with HNW private individuals. You'll already have really good London venues knowledge and will have your finger on the pulse in terms of knowing all about the major sporting & social event calendar and what opportunities these can offer for your clients.

From a personality of view, you'll be confident, hugely personable and great with high-end clients and you'll also be someone who can work effectively at pace and under pressure whilst still remaining cool, calm and collected no matter what!

You must have a proven background of organising all aspects of an event from concept design, planning, F&B (including attending menu & wine tastings), theming & decoration, AV & production, entertainment, additional staffing, guest list & RSVP management, venue & supplier liaison (quotes, negotiation & contracting), budgeting, logistics & ops, on-site event delivery, post event reconciliation and general event related admin and project tracking. Good IT & social media (especially Instagram) skills are essential and you'll need to be commercially aware and meticulously detailed.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a creative and super organised Event Manager who loves planning and delivering very hi-end 'wow-factor" events and experiences for their clients.
