Senior Event Manager
Location: Ashby-de-la-Zouch, UK
We deliver full service healthcare meetings and events throughout the product lifecycle. From the initial brief through to the final reconciliation, our Senior Event Managers act as the main client contact and are key to the flawless delivery of such programmes.
This role requires a commercially-adept leader who will ensure all stakeholders are informed and engaged through clear communication. You will be managing complex programmes with large budgets and will need to use business intelligence to drive innovation and display exceptional leadership to mentor staff, develop performance and monitor deliverables.
During project planning you will oversee a team of logistics, venue, travel, engagement, creative and production specialists and will need to set, communicate and maintain roles, responsibilities and timelines, as well as liaising with content producers to support, drive and advise clients on the best strategy to achieve their business objectives. You should therefore be able to work under pressure, prioritise workloads and meet deadlines, whilst maintaining a fastidious attention to detail and constantly displaying best practice processes and behaviour. On-site, you will co-ordinate and manage suppliers, preferred partners, event personnel and freelancers, ensuring compliance with all relevant policies and procedures.
You will help the Account Manager to grow key accounts by developing strong client relationships and creating new business opportunities, and will be involved in managing proposals, helping to translate briefs into innovative, appealing and commercially-viable creative solutions. It is therefore essential that you have experience of pitching to clients at a senior management level and that you are skilled at building trust and creating enthusiasm.
