Event Manager

 

Summary

 

We have an opening in our event management team for someone who can get things done when it counts. Someone with a bit of experience who understands that in live events, you only get one chance to get it right, and that’s why we love it.

 

So, if that sounds like you and you want to work on projects you can be proud of, 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.

 

The role

 

You’ll be a key member of a dynamic, professional team that’s responsible for delivering massive events that take place live and online. From concept and planning, through to delivery and completion, you’ll be coming up with creative ideas, managing deadlines, and solving problems – keeping stakeholders happy at every stage.

 

There’ll be travel (domestic & international), negotiation with suppliers, client relationships to nurture, budgets to manage, briefs to interpret, and always last-minute surprises. This is events. Did we mention we love it?

 

Will it be easy? No. Will it be exciting? Definitely.

 

About you

 

You’ll need to bring energy and enthusiasm, but you know that already. You’ll have a couple of years events experience and be ready to step up into a new role with an award-winning agency. Calmness under pressure, organisational skills and the ability to work in a team are a given.
You’ll be happy thinking on your feet, comfortable having an opinion, and able to communicate clearly in writing, on the phone or face to face.
Most importantly, you’ll love how satisfying live events can be when you deliver them perfectly. Like us, you’ll understand this in your bones.

 

What we offer

 

For starters, you get 25 days holiday, which goes up to 29 after 2 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. 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.
