Job Description


This is a brilliant opportunity to join a well established company delivering international events for the healthcare sector!


This experienced agency delivers a wide variety of global events for the who's who of clients within the pharmaceutical sector. Working across the UK and Europe they pride themselves on offering services in the management of congress attendance, advisory boards, investigator meetings, internal training programmes and much more. With strengths in venue sourcing, delegate registration and full end to end logistics they have built fantastic working relationships with their clients based on the expert knowledge of the existing team.

Offering an excellent working environment and fantastic career opportunities, this is an opportunity not to be missed!


There is now an exciting opportunity for an experienced Event Manager to join their close-knit and dedicated team and deliver events across their client base. A broad and all encompassing role; responsibilities will include:

  • Managing events from initial concept through to delivery

  • Maintaining and developing client relationships

  • Preparing event proposals

  • Implementing project timelines and meeting deadlines

  • Organising full event logistics

  • Overseeing the delegate registration process

  • Managing delegate logistics including accommodation and travel

  • Liaising and negotiating with AV suppliers, hotels and DMC's

  • Preparing and reconciling event budgets

  • Coordinating the delivery of events onsite

  • Supervising a junior team member on a project basis


Candidates must have a proven background of running events from initial brief through to financial reconciliation including full logistics, supplier management and onsite support. This could be gained either from working within an agency, med coms company or client side (for a pharmaceutical client) as exposure to running events in the healthcare sector would be beneficial but is not necessarily essential for the role. Candidates must have meticulous attention to detail as well as strong commercial and client facing skills. Candidates must be open to frequent international travel as you will be required to go onsite to manage the events.

In return for your commitment the client offers an opportunity to join an exciting, dynamic and growing company, with the chance to develop and grow your career in a supportive environment.
