  • A gregarious and approachable personality that works easily with internal and external partners.
  • Good negotiation skills; resourceful and solutions oriented.
  • A positive and hands on, 'can do' attitude; no job is too big or too small.
  • The ability to build strong internal relationships and leverage cross-department resources.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication.
  • The ability to work and collaborate as part of a small, fast-paced team.
  • A willingness to be flexible with working hours dependent upon the event schedules.

 You’ll have:

  • Minimum of 2 years’ experience in conference, functions or hospitality industries.

  • Proven experience in assisting in the operational delivery of events and conferences.
  • Proficient use of the latest versions of Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, mail merges, email and web applications.
  • Accounts payable, receivable and reconciliation experience.
  • Basic AV knowledge.


In return, we offer the opportunity to be an integral part of a very progressive and successful company, the chance to work with a great team of highly motivated and dedicated people in what is probably the best office in the world, a competitive remuneration package, excellent staff benefits and a truly unique environment.
