More About the Role…

The highlight of any event coordinator's day is being able to stand up in front of hundreds of people presenting our event solutions while injecting energy, fun and enthusiasm into a group of participants. Our team of event coordinators get to work with many different people and travel around the world, often spending days and weeks on the road, depending on their schedule.

The purpose of the role is to work directly with our customers, ensuring that their team building events are delivered with expertise and precision. That includes working through event execution checklists, taking event photos, obtaining video testimonials, planning and organizing, and having exceptional attention to detail. As an event coordinator planning and prioritization, as well as event delivery, are key to success.

The role also involves working closely with event managers remotely and your event hosts who you will manage on event day and set up for success by providing them with briefings, instructions and guidance. And when not prepping, delivering or wrapping up events, you are involved in networking with customers in person, on the phone and via email.

To be successful, you'll need to be able to manage large groups confidently, professionally and calmly. You'll also need to have a strong grasp on technology, using it for your own personal management, and for the planning and delivery of events. Many of our activities use smartphone technology so you'll need to be tech savvy and comfortable rising to any challenge, whether that be physical, mental or creative.

We're looking for someone who can travel and work a flexible schedule, including mornings, nights, weekdays and weekends as needed. Depending on how many events you choose to take on and are available for, you will need to be comfortable working from home and out on location. You'll therefore need to be an expert in managing your time and able to prioritize the critical tasks on your schedule.

Our ideal candidate is someone who is already familiar with the lifestyle involved with running events, perhaps for themselves, or other organizations.
