We’re looking for someone with operations experience to come in take a leading role in the seamless day to day running of Bray Leino Events. This is a great opportunity to take up a varied and interesting role as part of a busy international events agency. Working with leaders across every part of the business to ensure we’re as effective as we can be. If this sounds like a challenge you fancy, read on…


The role


This is a new role, reporting to the Commercial Director, and liaising closely with all departments, from event directors to facilities managers. You’ll be the go-to person for resourcing and training, and you’ll put procedures in place to ensure we’re sufficiently robust in both areas to deliver for our clients.


You’ll keep track of client assets and lead on global supply chain management, building relationships and negotiating with suppliers – ensuring they meet our sustainability and environmental requirements.


You’ll keep our processes in line and up to date with our ISO accreditations, work with teams to address their training needs, and help us induct new starters so they immediately feel like they belong.


Did we mention this was a varied role…? The leadership team will also need your operational support on key initiatives across areas like recruitment and retention, learning and development, and diversity and inclusion.


About you


You’ve got operations experience at a similar level. If it’s in the events industry, perfect, but if you can tell us about some relevant challenges you’ve faced in a different sector and how you overcame them, we’ll be all ears.


Goes without saying, you’ll be highly organised. And with a lead role in our internal comms, you’ll need to be comfortable communicating with all types of people, face to face, on the phone, and over email.


What we offer


For starters, you get 25 days holiday, which goes up to 29 after two years. There’s a company pension scheme, cycle to work scheme, and an extensive employee discount scheme that will save you money on everything from gym memberships to eating out.

We play hard. We throw awesome seasonal staff socials, finish early on Fridays in the summer, and we close down every year between Christmas and New Year.


We’ll look out for your wellbeing. There’s a medical plan that pays cashback on your dental treatment, glasses, physio and things like that; plus, it features an employee assist programme with a 24hr GP hotline and wellbeing support service. And if you refer a friend to come and work for us, we’ll pay you a finder’s fee.


The serious stuff


We take the serious stuff seriously. You’ll be given access to the learning and development you need to grow and progress. And we have clear codes of conduct and policies on issues like equality, diversity & inclusion, and sustainability. We want our people to feel confident about helping us always be better.


If this sounds like something for you, get in touch now.
