We’re currently looking for someone to help lead our world-class programme of inspirational events.
Following the strategic guidance and direction from the leadership team, you’ll be accountable for overseeing the delivery of all our events, including conferences, retreats and training & coaching programmes.
As the leader of a small but growing team of highly driven Event Managers, your role is essential in exectuing our ambitious events strategy, including our flagship brands Leading Design and UX London, through:
You’ll have proven experience within the events industry, supported by evidence of having run successful, face-to-face, virtual and/or hybrid events. You'll also be responsible for supporting and nurturing our events practice at Clearleft, through:
We’re looking for self-driven, adaptable and bold individuals who thrive on the freedom and trust to do the work they love in the way they like. If you strive to do some of the most fulfilling work of your career, in a culture free from bureaucratic constraints, Clearleft may be the ideal place for you.
You know that running events for a human-centred design studio means we put a lot of emphasis on great experiences for our attendees, whether they're in real life, virtual or a hybrid of the two. You intuitively focus on the needs of the people attending the events, but are able to understand the complexity involved and pragmatism required in balancing them with our organisational goals or any logistical constraints. You have a zest for putting smiles on the faces of our event attendees, and you have an array of techniques from which to draw upon to make it happen.
As you know, things can get really busy in the build up to an event. You're someone who is happy to roll up your sleeves as and when needed. Some international travel, a few long days and the occasional weekend away from home are to be expected, however we believe in a happy work-life balance at Clearleft, so offer flexible working hours and plenty of time off in lieu in return.
You’re proactive and happy to get stuck in, experimenting with new ideas and approaches and measuring their outcomes. If you don’t get them right the first time (which you won’t), you’re resilient and comfortable to adapt what you’ve learnt for the next time.
You prefer discussion over emails and documents. You pride yourself on expressing yourself confidently and clearly, and with a strong sense of purpose that encourages trust from your colleagues and stakeholders, whether that’s a conversation around a whiteboard, a pitch for an innovative new event idea, or a chat with a potential new sponsor.
We hire for culture add, not culture fit. We encourage everyone to bring their own unique character to the team, feeling free to express themselves in a safe and supportive environment. Hiring people from diverse backgrounds enriches the team’s values and the work we do, helping make us greater than the sum of our parts.
If the above resonates with you, we should get together for a chat.
If so, please send an email and your résumé, CV or portfolio to email@example.com, telling us why you’re right for this role.
Application deadline: 31 October 2021
We look forward to hearing from you.
