Project Manager - Live Events

Beckenham (South London), United Kingdom

Calling all technical & live event Project Managers (or Production Managers!) living near Southeast London and looking for a freeing and fulfilling leg up in their career.

We are recruiting for experienced, enthusiastic and technical live event Project Managers who are well-versed in the schematics of putting together a quote, managing the budget and keeping the spreadsheet up to date, whilst supporting clients and coralling your in-house AV technicians for any event on the calendar - be it a very posh wedding, fancy afterparty in Cannes, or a product launch for trend-setting shoes!

Putting quotes and budgets together are an essential part of the role: you need to be able to factor in lighting, projection, sound systems and scenic components that form the dream 'vision' your client has floating around in the meeting space, and break down what it will take to finance their perfect experience.

You don’t have to be a technical wiz; there are in-house experts who can help you assess which specific projector or camera or lighting rig etc. would be needed to bring each vision to life, as well as expert designers on hand. What this team needs is a calm and collected presence to face the clientssupport the in-house teams, keep a keen eye on the budget and tackle those pesky spreadsheets!

Our client is known for their big budget events and no-holds barred approach to putting on the perfect production - their average event budget ranges from £100-£250kLots of travel is involved to keep things organised and the team on track, so being rared and prepared to spend every other week sunning in the South of France, trekking the dunes of Dubai or scampering around the USA is a key part of the role. But that being said, working hard doesn't mean running yourself into the ground - if you are used to taking on high-class jobs but are sick of being rushed off your feet handling numerous projects at once, then maybe consider this your ticket to chillville - there's no overloading here.

Plus with a generous expense package and plenty of company bonuses, it's nice to make every project a party!

You do need to be commutable to Beckenham and work in the office 4 days a week - with the insane creative freedom comes great responsibility, and with a team of eager and expert underlings to corral and coordinate, it's easy to brainstorm and bounce ideas around in person.

If this kind of work seems right up your alley, and you've been on the hunt for a chance to elevate your spreadsheets, client-speak and budgeting-chic, get in touch with us today. Let's have a conversation :)
