CONFERENCE DESIGN is one of Australia’s leading conference management companies and every day our team is working with organisations to deliver efficient, stand-out conference events all over Australia and New Zealand.
Right now we are taking applications for talented organisers to join us as we grow towards an exciting future.
It’s definitely not a boring job – but it’s not an easy job either. Every event we create is a huge challenge requiring a carefully managed and systematic approach. There are detailed processes to follow, long hours of desk work and careful negotiations. And let’s not forget meticulous time management and serious amounts of preparation.
If sleeping-in late is a high priority, you probably need to keep looking.
But if you’ve got individual flair, creative talent and initiative to burn, then you might be exactly the person we are looking for.
Coordinating a high-profile conference for our clients is about balancing an intricate matrix of systems, processes and technology with personality and individual interaction.
If you understand this, you’ve passed the first test!
You will need:
- Great attention to detail and brilliant organising skills
- Ability to multi-task and handle conflicting deadlines effectively
- Exceptional written and verbal communication skills (yep, that means on the phone & face-to-face – not just email)
- Strong computer literacy with a high level of experience using Microsoft Word, Excel and Outlook
- A general understanding of website content and Social Media platform management
- And you’ll need to be professionally presented at all times
This position will be employed under the following Award:
Conference Design is a family-run team in the truest sense. Ours is a team that supports each other and embraces individual talents and skills to encourage personal growth. We’re all about job satisfaction with a fair amount of fun along the way.
Most of the time you’ll be based in our Hobart office but occasionally the position will require interstate travel to conference locations as well as some work outside normal office hours.
You’ll go from balancing budgets on spreadsheets and organising floorplans, to engaging with delegates via phone, website, social media, mobile conference apps…and things we haven’t even thought of yet!
If you are just starting out on your career path – and already have bucket loads of initiative, then this could be EXACTLY the job you are looking for.
Conference Design has a strong reputation for looking after our staff and encouraging personal growth either inside or outside the company. Think of it as a starting point for a world of future opportunities.
If this sounds like you, we simply want to hear from you – sooner rather than later.
The chance to apply officially closes on 6 January 2019 but don’t wait – we will be reviewing any applications we receive early, so get them in soon. Our new Coordinators will be starting with us in January 2019.
