Job Description


Don't miss out on this rare opportunity to join a leading global events agency within a newly created team following a recent high profile healthcare client win!


With a strong, established base and offices across Europe and the USA this agency is going from strength to strength! With a broad and varied list of blue chip clients they have exceptional capabilities in event logistics, production and travel delivering events including conferences, exhibitions, congresses and incentives for 10 - 1000 pax worldwide. Covering a variety of sectors including IT, pharma and financial services they deliver outstanding events across the UK and internationally.

Offering the feel of a smaller agency with the international backing and support of a global business - career progression and development knows no bound here!


Due to a new client win as part of their ongoing global business development strategy, we are now recruiting multiple roles for a new healthcare client of theirs including a Senior Project Manager. With a focus on congress attendance and stand alone meetings, the events delivered will be varied and the role of Project Manager will focus on the end to end delivery.

The role will cover:

* Key stakeholder management within the client
* Briefing the teams and running the more complex events
* Contracting and negotiating with venues and suppliers
* Large scale budget management and reconciliation
* Managing 3rd party suppliers
* Ensuring smooth delegate registration process
* Overseeing a Project Manager and Project Executive
* Continuous client management and updates
* On-site event management (international travel)


Currently working either within an agency delivering large scale pharmaceutical congresses and stand alone events, or within an in-house pharma client team, you will be able to demonstrate full project management of a range of events. With a strong understanding of the compliance surrounding the industry including ABPI and European compliance within pharma, you will be passionate about delivering high profile events for some of the top names in the industry and keen to develop your career with a great agency!

Do not delay in applying for this exciting new team!
