This is an opportunity to join Bray Leino Events as an Event Director. You’ll have enough experience to have a good idea of what this will entail. We’ll need your strategic and creative input on large-scale, complex and high-profile events. It’ll be fast-paced, international, and awesome!
So if you’re ready for a challenge, read on…
Who are we?
We are Bray Leino Events, 100+ event professionals, working out of offices in Bristol, London, Devon, Stratford and Chicago. We deliver upwards of 200 events every year, from exhibitions and conferences, to summits, galas, awards, product launches, roadshows and everything in between.
We work all over the globe, face to face and virtually, with brands, businesses, charities, and governments who all have one thing in common – they have a key message that needs to be articulated through the unique environment of a live event.
These are not standard events. We imagine differently. We create spaces where leaders make international headlines, and sometimes change the world.
And we have great time doing it.
This is a lead role with a dynamic team, responsible for the concept, planning and delivery of a large-scale conferences with 1000+ delegates. You’ll be working with clients and stakeholders at a strategic level, briefing creative teams, managing budgets and timelines, negotiating with contractors and more…
There’ll be problem-solving, jet-setting, VIP delegate management, plate-spinning, laughter, surprises, and generally keeping everyone happy and on track to ensure seamless, epic project delivery.
You’re going to come in with confidence, energy, attention to detail, and a keen appreciation that in events, you only get one chance to deliver perfectly – that’s why we love it.
You’ll be able to tell us about how you’ve led teams, stayed cool and solved problems to emerge victorious under pressure. You’ll be happy in a leadership role among smart, dynamic, enthusiastic professionals. And, like us, you’ll be slightly addicted to the satisfaction of seamless events and happy clients.
You’ve got five to eight years of senior event management experience under your belt – or you haven’t, but you still think you can convince us you’ve got what it takes to nail this. We’re open to being convinced.
What we offer
For starters, you get 25 days holiday, which goes up to 29 after 2 years. There’s a company pension scheme, childcare vouchers, 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. So if you have a view or an idea, we’ll want you to be involved in helping us always be better.
If this sounds like your cup of tea, get in touch now.
