Events Executive, Bishop's Stortford -
A small-but-global software company in Bishops Stortford are looking for an Events Executive to join their growing team. We have placed several people here this year and the feedback on what they’re like to work for is fantastic; highly collaborative, fast-paced and friendly with real progression and development opportunity.
The ideal candidate will be confident and proactive, and have at least two years’ events experience working on trade shows, conferences, exhibitions and seminars, and be comfortable working autonomously, making decisions, managing budgets, logistics and suppliers.
With nearly 50 events a year, you will not be bored, working on trade shows and exhibitions to plan, promote, run and then improve. It’s global, so some seminars will need (very occasional) international travel.
Day to day, you’ll be working with suppliers – from the displays and printers to catering and entertainment – and will manage the budget, too. You’ll work closely with the sales and marketing team in-house to agree a content strategy for promoting the event across multiple channels online and offline.
You’ll have full ownership for some events, so you will need to be confident in your ability and keep a cool head under pressure, but there is real opportunity with this position; as the company grows, so will your team, so if you’re an events professional with 2 years’ experience, get in touch and apply!
Well-connected by road and rail, you can easily commute to the offices from Cambridge, London, Harlow, Chelmsford, Colchester, Hatfield, Braintree, Stevenage, Welwyn Garden City, Luton, Cheshunt, Hemel Hempstead and St Albans.
