- Taking the lead on the delivery of all virtual/live events

- Managing all delegate and speaker liaison
- Sourcing appropriate venues when live events make a comeback
- Working closely with other key members of the team to create a marketing strategy for events
- Liaising with suppliers

- Handling any queries or event related problems
- Building relationships with sponsors
- Ensuring all health and safety obligations are followed
The right candidate must have experience of delivering complex events with many moving parts from within either an association or corporate environment. Ample experience of liaising with speakers will be necessary. Candidates should ideally have worked on large scale conferences previously and any experience of abstract management would be an added benefit.
Candidates will also need to be organised, have excellent communication skills and be used to managing multiple projects with certain timescales. Experience working on virtual events would be advantageous but isn't a must.
With an excellent working environment and fantastic benefits this is an opportunity not to be missed.
