This business-critical role will be the main point of contact onsite for a range of customers in the sports & music sector.

The London & Southeast event calendar operates 12 months of the year and you would be expected to work flexibly to including some weekends, evenings and night shifts as the business requires.

The person

Experience in the events industry would be advantageous but someone with a real can-do attitude who is prepared to get their sleeves rolled up and do a brilliant job is what we are looking for. This is a hands-on role – we need someone who is happy to get stuck in and support the team on site at the events – no ivory towers to be seen!

Equally, this is a role which includes managing people – you will be pivotal in leading & motivating the Cup Crew Supervisor and Cup Crew Team on site and be the face of the company during these events, so 2-3 years’ experience in man management either in multi-site or standalone operational venue is essential.

Ideally this individual will be based in the home counties with easy access to major road networks and with the ability to get into London easily. A full driving licence is essential.

Finally, as a new business challenges are part of everyday life so we are looking for someone who is well organised, conscientious, hard working with a positive can-do attitude. You will be a self-starter who is able to work unsupervised and you will be willing to work through problems and create solutions – a true all-rounder and problem solver!
