Marketing & Events
Simply great opportunity for an experienced events operations manager to oversee the logistics and organisational side of a series of large-scale (and growing) shows in London, Amsterdam and San Francisco.
These high-quality conferences and exhibitions are held worldwide in London, Amsterdam and Silicon Valley, each attracting thousands of attendees and in excess of 150 exhibitors per event.
Headquartered in Bristol, this is the events division of a larger group - a diverse and dynamic events, venues, and publishing business.
What you’ll be doing:
The focus will be to ensure that the three annual international events look fantastic and come in on budget. You will liaise with sponsors to ensure that they have everything they need to maximise their participation in our events, while managing external suppliers including stand contractors, AV suppliers, printers, and furniture/flooring providers.
You will initially line manage one ops assistant and between you deal with all supplier-related enquiries and deliverables. You will work in conjunction with the in-house designer to ensure that all event signage is on-point, and that floorplans are laid out for optimal flow and traffic.
Between you and the ops assistant you will ensure that all sponsor and exhibitor logos are clearly displayed on the relevant websites. In some instances you will be required to manage turnkey stand build requirements for sponsors as well as coordinating any bespoke networking events.
You will arrange venue bookings, will be responsible for managing staff travel and accommodation, and in the current climate you will ensure that all events are held in line with latest relevant local and international travel and domestic guidelines relating to Covid19.
You will oversee all major logistical requirements across three international tradeshows and take a hands-on visible project management position on site at events. You will create an on-site staff rota and brief all staff pre-event as to their responsibilities for the duration of the events.
- You need to be an authentic communicator and great stakeholder manager – both internally within the business and externally with suppliers.
- You should be able to maximise event budgets through supplier management.
- You should have fantastic customer service skills, putting the experience of the clients above all else.
- You will need to be highly organised and able to set and maintain schedules. Multi-tasking skills are a must!
- Candidates should have a minimum of 3-5 years relevant experience.
- Competitive salary
- Career development opportunities in a growing business
- A fun and lively work culture, with regular social events.

Moxie and Mettle is a UK-based recruitment company; our clients are based in the UK too. Although many clients offer remote working as an option, there is still a need to regularly visit company offices and clients in the UK. Therefore, applications from overseas are unlikely to be successful, unless applicants already have plans to be in the UK several times a month/year to facilitate meetings with both the teams and clients.
