We are looking for an enthusiastic and engaging person to join the Unicorn Group stable.
Unicorns are rare so you must have an eye for detail, combined with creative flair and a customer-centric outlook on what we deliver. We are looking for someone who is completely buttoned down but can think independently, creatively and strategically.
You might have experience in events but that’s not a must. What is essential is understanding scheduling, working to deadlines and an ability to prioritise business goals. Your background may be as an EA, producer, project manager, travel manager, or something completely different.
You will be excited about collaborating with the team to create great experiences.
Your role will be twofold.
You will have a support role to the CEO as a business and executive assistant – supporting workload, liaising with clients, suppliers and team members. You will need to be highly organised and have great time management and logistical capabilities.
As an event assistant to the team, you will assist in the creation of memorable experiences. You will be a customer-focused member of the production team, managing registration and customer service components of events. You will also assist on the research of event concepts, destinations, suppliers, activities and deliverables. You will recommend solutions to the team and engage suppliers where necessary.
This combination of KPIs will gain you experience in all aspects of the events business from high-level strategic thinking through to on-site delivery and everything in between. This role will suit any individual who is passionate about learning as much as possible, as quickly as possible in the events industry.
