The Hired Guns are working with one of the leading players in the investment banking arena to find an Event Planner for its institutional marketing and event planning group. This is a great opportunity for a dynamic, up-and-coming person to gain entry into marketing and events within the investment banking sector.
You’ve got event planning in your blood. We’re looking for a highly professional multi-tasker who has excellent phone presence and tremendous attention to detail. You’ve got a bachelors degree and the standard skill set (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access), but it’ll really come down to that shining personality of yours. We want to see that you’re the consummate professional: articulate and comfortable on the phone, dazzling in your organizational skills, a flawless attention to detail, all while maintaining a positive, outgoing demeanor and an ability to work with a wide range of people.
We are looking for three or four years’ overall work experience in an event planning environment (preferably on the corporate side). This is an investment bank, where expectations are high and things move fast. So you need a can-do attitude, a confident communication style, and an ability to project a professional image.
You will be responsible for sourcing and planning small to mid-sized corporate events. You will handle every step of the process, so everything from booking the venue, to managing the list and working onsite the day of the event will fall under your purview.
This client is only interested in exceptional people, so be prepared to demonstrate what makes you just that. And it’s worth the added effort — landing this gig will set you up for any and every event and meeting planning opportunity you can imagine down the line.
This is a tough world to break into — here’s a shot at getting your foot in a big, heavy, rarely-opened door!
