Full-time Events Manager
This is a key role within the college: we run a number of our own courses but also host a variety of external events, ranging from performances to large conferences, throughout the year.
We are looking for someone with great attention to detail and the ability to prioritise their own workload as well as juggling numerous requests. You will respond to enquiries for venue hires and the logistics for classroom spaces, accommodation and meals. In the Reception you will provide students and guests with all the information needed for their stay.
It will be helpful if you have previously worked in a hospitality environment or in a managerial role, and can work to tight timescales. You should be resilient, a good team player with excellent communication skills and the ability to deliver great customer service, as well as manage the day to day activities. A volunteer will support you in your work.
