Are you an experienced weddings and events manager looking for a new challenge?

Do you want a job that offers variety, with no 2 days the same?

Are you passionate about customer service with a love for events?

I have a unique opportunity available for an events manager to join the team of a beautiful countryside wedding and events venue.

This is a very exciting time for this venue as new facilities are being added and the events manager would have a key role in the development process. It is a great opportunity to share your experience and ideas and really make your mark.

The events manager will meet with couples that are planning their big day, showing them around the venue and offering support and advice along the way.

You will also manage the event on the day to ensure everything runs smoothly.

Role responsibilities:

  • Answering phone calls, replying to emails, updating the CRM, sending booking documents.
  • Scheduling staff, ordering supplies, liaising with external suppliers and gaining post event feedback.
  • Showing couples or clients around the venue and supporting the planning process.
  • To manage a fast-growing hospitality venue with a great reputation.
  • Promote the business through social media and our website.
  • To be involved in recruiting process of new staff members to join the team.

Skills required

•             Previous experience in hospitality is essential – preferably within conferencing, weddings or events.

•             A keen eye for detail

•             Time management - the ability to manage your time on a monthly basis.

•             Ability to prioritise tasks and be adaptable.

Hours

This is not a 9 to 5 role. Weddings often take place during weekends so there will be a necessity to work a lot of weekends during the summer. There is flexibility around the hours when not running an event. You will be expected to manage your own hours and diary week to week.

Salary and benefits

  • Salary £25,000 - £30,000 depending on experience.
  • Free beverages and onsite parking
  • Holiday entitlement - 28 days of paid holiday per year
  • Pension Scheme available
