Key skills

The ideal candidate will have a minimum of 12 months experience in creating content for B2B events within either a conference production or agency role and/or a relevant science/medical degree. 

Candidates should be driven by seeing an event achieve its target as well as the overall success of the team. They should be confident in taking responsibility for their events and working autonomously whilst ensuring that all key stakeholders in the team are up to date with event progress. As events may be repeated several times through a year, the right candidate will be motivated by becoming an expert in the field/topic and be driven to constantly find new ways to engage the audience.

The ability to work under pressure and to deadlines is essential. The successful candidate must be able to multitask, working on multiple projects simultaneously. Candidates should have an understanding of commercial drivers to events and ability to identify and resolve potential conflict between delegate and sponsor objectives.
