JOB VACANCY – Events Coordinator
We aim to develop an innovative and varied events programme across all of our venues. We are looking for a dynamic, energetic and determined individual to join the team. This is a busy role, that requires you to be well planned, but with the ability to be entirely reactive when required – which is often!
LEAF Portland Street is our first venue in Manchester; therefore, we are looking for a candidate who has a well-established network and contacts within the area. You will work within an established team to deliver events and also develop new concepts.
As an Events Coordinator and a specialist in your area, you will be responsible for social, corporate and cultural event planning. You will be the customer’s initial point of contact and will manage all communications from initial enquiries, to booking and agreeing final details of events. You will also liaise with the operational team to ensure that details are handed over so that service is delivered to meet and exceed the client’s expectations.
The role will involve conducting show-rounds with prospective customers and contacts, establishing what their requirements are and selling the correct packages to suit them. It will also involve supporting the marketing of events and maintaining relationships with key suppliers.
We are looking for someone with a great personality to share their passion for the hospitality industry and, as you will be a brand ambassador, someone who always delivers service with a smile. You will be working in a busy environment which requires a consistency in customer service, flexibility and being able to work well under pressure.
The ideal candidate will be organised, an excellent communicator, have exceptional attention to detail and the passion to go the extra mile for our customers. Experience within the hospitality industry is required.
We believe in developing our team and creating a workplace where people feel comfortable and happy in their roles. We also offer a wide variety of training programmes to aid you in your career development.
