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’re looking for talented people to join us as we grow towards an exciting – and definitely not ordinary – future.
Make no mistake, it’s not an easy job. 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, this isn’t the job for you.
But at the same time if you’ve got individual flair, creative talent and initiative to burn then you might be exactly the person we are looking for.
Seriously though, we are not after a clown who can juggle on a unicycle*. Good conference management is about balancing the intricate matrix of systems, processes and technology with personality and individual interaction. If you understand that, you’re already halfway there.
You’ll also know there’ll be certain things you just HAVE to have:
- Strong attention to detail and brilliant organising skills
- Ability to multi-task and handle conflicting deadlines effectively
- Exceptional written and verbal communication skills
- Computer literate and a high level of experience in Microsoft Word, Excel and Outlook is desirable
- General understanding of website content and Social Media platform management
- Professionally presented at all times
This position will be employed under the following Award:
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, websites, social media, mobile conference apps and things we haven’t even thought of yet!
Conference Design is a team in the truest sense, supporting each other while recognising and embrace individual talents and skills to encourage personal growth, job satisfaction and enjoyment.
If ANY of this sounds like you, we simply want to hear from you before 30th January, 2018 at the very latest.
EMAIL US NOW with your resume and tell us what makes YOU right for the job.
* Jugglers on unicycles may be considered. But not clowns.
