You have an understanding of consumer behaviour and are well versed in the latest digital marketing techniques;
You are dynamic and versatile and are used to wearing many hats – you thrive in an environment where no two work days are exactly the same;
A large part of event management is problem solving. We don’t expect you to have lots of experience in the sector, but we will expect you to be able to remain calm in stressful situations, to be proactive and full of ideas, to take ownership of the tasks that we give you, to think on your feet and to have a relentless attitude to getting things done;
