As a hard-working events prof, does the sound of working 4 days a week, (every week), on ground-breaking international invite-only events appeal?
We’re looking for an operations manager to join this London based, award-winning company.
You will oversee the end-to-end logistics and delivery of 2 shows within the group portfolio. You don’t need to do everything yourself though, you will have an operations executive reporting into you, so delegating the right work to them will come natural to you.
The events they run are carefully curated, imaginative, never boring, and are attended by carefully selected crowds – so you are going to have a great time doing it! Both the events you work on are in North America (Miami & LA) – so travelling there about 6 times a year should excite you!
This is a super cool client, they are considered thought leaders in the luxury travel industry, making their impact by defining specific travel genres and building passionate communities and large-scale events around them.
You are going to be someone who has proven operational success on large-scale, high-profile events internationally in either the form of a festival, live music event or large scale entertainment event. All the stakeholders in the process have a passion and expectation for quality, so your attention to detail much be second to none.
There is obviously a lot of subjectivity from client to client, so for the avoidance of doubt, this is what you are likely to do on a regular basis:
- Manage the development, production and delivery of projects from proposal right up to delivery.
- Mange the budget for both events, ensuring best costs are negotiated.
- Provide strategic oversight and coordination of projects to ensure deadlines are hit as well as suggesting new processes to improve efficiency.
- Create a network of high calibre suppliers that you have excellent win-win relationships with.
- Ensure health and safety standards are met at both events.
As mentioned, you will only be working Monday – Thursday so can enjoy a 3 day weekend, every week The only fixed day in the office is Monday, so can choose the other day you WFH.
From a salary perspective, you are looking at between £35,000 and £45,000 and will have access to a whole raft of other benefits. Did we mention 4 day week? If you are interested or want to know more, call me, send me a message, DM, carrier pigeon – whatever is easiest.
