Job Ref:

A Midlands based events agency has a rare opportunity for someone to join their events team as a Project Manager. This close-knit and privately-owned events management agency, operating in the automotive sector, is seeking a highly motivated events professional. Their business involves supporting vehicle manufacturers and their dealers in all aspects of product, service offering and business promotion. This incorporates a wide range of indoor and outdoor events, project managing anything from photo shoots and new product launches to promotional roadshows - so you'll need to be a hands-on, versatile and flexible individual.

You will be responsible for cradle-to-grave delivery of client led events, primarily in the UK but occasionally in Europe, to a standard of service that is of the highest calibre, synonymous with one of the world's leading automotive brands.

Your responsibilities will include:

* Project managing the development of events to a pre-determined brief
* Managing a wide variety of off-site events
* Managing relationships with clients and service providers
* Developing new event solutions alongside the agency's in-house team
* Maintaining national and international venue knowledge
* Managing event timelines and budgets, ensuring projects are delivered on time and on budget
* Managing events on-site, including the invitation and delegate process, transfer and rooming lists
* Negotiating with suppliers and coordinating ground requirements
* Ensuring that event outcomes are recorded and providing detailed reports on each event

The company is looking for a self-starter and a specialist in project planning, who must have first class customer/people handling skills and a passion for delivering high quality events. Strong commercial acumen and an eye for spotting new event opportunities would also be a welcome attribute.

You must have experience in a project management role in an agency environment relating to the exhibition/conference/events industry, and be able to work independently. The ability to make quick decisions in a busy environment is essential. You will be a natural planner, confident communicator and be able to quickly establish working relationships with your clients and suppliers.

In return our client is able to offer a unique opportunity to become involved in a fast-paced stimulating environment where your creativity and organisational skills will be able to flourish and job satisfaction is a given!
