Do you have a passion for the events industry? Are you confident at dealing with people at all levels? Based in Shrewsbury, we are responsible for the organisation of a large number of national exhibitions and are looking to recruit a number of staff to join our small but expanding team. The positions all require articulate, enthusiastic, hard-working team players, who must have a real passion for events. You will also need to be flexible – this is not a 9 to 5 industry! – you must be able to work away for the duration of the events and be prepared to work weekends when required. Event Operations Assistant Day to day responsibilities will involve working on all organisational aspects of our shows, including general event administration, floor plan management, exhibitor, venue and contractor liaison and the on-site management of events. Whilst there is an emphasis on operations and logistics, you will also be required to undertake exhibition sales and marketing tasks. An ability to deal with people of all levels and strong communication skills are essential. This opportunity offers the right individual who is looking for a career within the Exhibition/Events Industry to gain hands on experience from the ground up whilst working on nationally and internationally recognised events.
