Conference Coordinator
Hobart, Tasmania-based

CONFERENCE DESIGN is one of Australia’s leading conference management companies and every day our team is working with professional organisations to deliver stand-out, memorable conference events all over Australia and New Zealand.

After another successful year, we are looking for talented people to join our team as we grow towards an exciting future.

A CONFERENCE COORDINATOR is not an ‘easy’ job, but we promise it’s not boring either. Every event we create is a huge challenge requiring a meticulous and systematic approach. There are detailed processes to follow, long hours of preparation and desk work and careful negotiations to be made.

Coordinating a high-profile conference for our clients is about balancing an intricate matrix of systems, processes and technology with personality and individual interaction.

So if you’ve got individual flair, motivation and initiative to burn, then you might be exactly the person we are looking for.

Conference Design is a family-run team in the truest sense. We support each other and embrace individual talents and skills. Here you’ll find real job satisfaction – and 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 floor plans, to engaging with delegates via phone, website, social media, mobile conference apps … and things we haven’t even thought of yet!

At the same time you’ll definitely need:

• Great attention to detail and brilliant organising and time-management skills
• Ability to multi-task and handle conflicting deadlines effectively
• Exceptional written and verbal communication skills (and 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:

If you are just starting out on your career path – and already have loads of initiative and motivation, then this could be EXACTLY the job you are looking for.
If this sounds like you, we simply want to hear from you NOW.
