You will be able to demonstrate your track record within the events industry, having worked with similar agencies in the delivery of projects for public, private or third sector clients.

You will be a first point of contact for their clients and so you will be approachable, articulate, confident and able to interpret client briefs to develop innovative approaches and solutions.

You will thrive under pressure, relish a fast-paced environment and take interest in varied work from their diverse range of clients, whilst enjoying the totality of project work from start to finish.

Becoming part of our close-knit team, you will lead in project delivery providing end-to-end management for events and related projects all over the country. You will report to and be supported by the Head of Projects.
