They are now recruiting for an Event Manager to come in and work on launching Corporate events such as Dinners, Product Launches and Brand Activation for the UK market.

You will be responsible for the Operations so you will be liaising with their Sound, Set and AV/Lights departments, dealing with the client direct and putting on their events.
To be considered for this Event Manager role you must have 2 to 3 years proven events within either another agency or a corporate client, the client will consider people coming from a B2B Conference/events background as long as you know you will be initially getting new clients on board.
