Fantastic Opportunity In The UK's Leading WEDDING & EVENTS Venues:
We Are Looking For:
We are looking for a talented, enthusiastic and capable Event Manager to join our fantastic team at one of the UK’S top wedding venues in idyllic east Kent for the 2019/20 seasons. This is a PART- TIME role and might suit someone with children or looking for a future career in the events industry. Our events season runs from March through to October each year.
There is BIG SCOPE for this to be a Career Role for someone looking for a challenge in a happy and fulfilling environment, within an expanding, dynamic business. We are small, friendly team who enjoy what we do.
We are looking for an articulate, professional and well presented people-person to join our lovely team, at a family owned wedding venue in pretty east Kent. You need to have excellent communication skills, be practical, hard working and focused, and you need to enjoy working in events, which can finish in the early hours or be demanding at times.
As an Event Manager you will work alongside another manager and would be responsible for coordinating our weddings and events which requires attention to detail, a smiley disposition and confidence to manage up to ten waitering staff. Don't worry we will provide thorough training and guidance, so we just need to find the right sort of person who will gel with our team.
Other tasks include meeting couples and their families, conducting occasional viewings of the venue, (which is always very enjoyable), basic diary management, problem solving and some practical tasks around the venue. You need to be able to work as part of a team or individually depending on the task in hand. Therefore, the applicant needs to have an understanding of sales, be calm under pressure, and able to multitask on occasion.
This is an Event Management role which will include a small proportion of office based tasks, and NOT a wedding planning role, and you need to be highly organised and capable of writing eloquent emails. A knowledge of Google Drive, Outlook / G suite (email), and other basic booking software/ platforms would be beneficial, however we can provide some training on this.
Hours:-- Approx 12-30 hours per week (including weekends). £10 - £15 per hour PLUS Bonus. Role will commence ASAP.
