About you

You are passionate about what you do; full of energy to succeed. A go-getter and a real team player, you take pride in delivering the very best work, often whilst under some rather tight deadlines!

You keep your cool and think about solutions rather than problems. You don’t mind travelling for work, (in and outside of the UK) and are comfortable with the fact that for the most part, no two days will ever be the same!

Overall though, you are dedicated to building a successful career in the world of live events and want to work with like-minded people.

Does the above sound familiar? Then we want to hear from you!
