Do you like planning and coordinating a wide range of events?
We have an exciting opportunity for you to join The Bodleian Libraries events team. You will be part of the busy events team who look after all internal events as well as corporate events, weddings and commercial filming. You will also have the opportunity to work with a range of stakeholders to deliver high profile events.
You will conduct client show rounds, respond to enquiries from a range of customers and work with external suppliers and internal stakeholders. You will liaise with clients and colleagues to plan and agree the operational arrangements for each event and, on the event days, you will oversee the set-up and start of the event, and hand over to the Event Supervisors when appropriate. You will work closely with the Bodleian’s suppliers to maintain key relationships. You will work with other Bodleian departments and the others in the Events team to ensure that best-practice policy guidelines and service standards are met.
You will have previous experience coordinating events and a proven track record of providing outstanding customer service. With excellent interpersonal skills, employing tact, discretion and diplomacy, you will be able to take initiative when approaching decision making, planning and organising and be confident asserting rules when needed. You will also be a skilled multitasker with the ability to work under pressure in a busy environment as part of a team and on the events you are coordinating/responsible for.
