If you’re ready to take on a senior event management role with an international, award-winning agency, this is for you. We need someone who’s got experience – maybe a lot, maybe just a bit – but crucially, someone who can get stuck in and make things happen as part of a dynamic events team. We create show-stopping, headline-grabbing projects. And we do it all over the world. It’s great!

If you think this sounds like a great opportunity, you’re right. 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

This is a brand-new senior role, part of a dynamic team responsible for bringing together all the elements – creation, planning, management and delivery – of large-scale events. We’ll want your operational, creative and strategic input. You’ll need to keep budgets and deadlines on point, and make sure stakeholders, clients, and suppliers are kept happy.

You’ll report to the Event Director, but there’ll be plenty of opportunity for you to take the initiative on your own projects. There’ll be travel (UK and international), problem-solving, adventures, surprises (always), VIPs and celebrities to manage. It’ll be hard sometimes, hilarious often, and satisfying in the way only a top-flight event management job can be.

About you

You’re going to need energy and enthusiasm. Logistics are your bread and butter, and attention to detail runs in your blood. So you’ll be able to tell us about how these qualities have powered your past events victories – How you’ve stayed cool as a cucumber under pressure – How you took responsibility and got the job done when it counted.

Because you only get one chance to deliver a great event, which is part of the reason you love it – like us. But it’s also the fun, the adventure, the creativity, and the chance to do something genuinely special of as part of a great team. If you’ve got love for events, we’re your people.

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.
