Expiry date: 15:30, 24 June 2021
Location: London
Salary: £30,000 Per Annum
Benefits: Excellent Benefits

London is opening, events are back on and we're looking for an experienced Event Planner to join our amazing team at the Royal Albert Hall.

Managed by Rhubarb Hospitality Collection, the event operation encompasses 147 hospitality boxes, private and semi-private function rooms, a roof terrace and the arena itself which can all be used for spectacular private events, meetings, dinners, corporate launches, drinks parties and awards shows from BAFTA’s to the Fashion Awards.

As an Event Planner you’ll sell, book and oversee the larger (and typically VIP) private events, as well as handling inbox Hospitality bookings. You'll be able to convert incoming enquiries from a catering perspective, be the main contact for key clients and support the Head of Sales with the day to day running of a busy events office. This role has a strong emphasis on event planning.

The ideal Event Planner will need to have experience within a similar role – ideally the M&E department of a luxury 4 or 5* hotel or an event venue. We’re looking for an Event Planner who is highly organised, confident (in person and on the phone) and of course, passionate about food and drink.

We have an excellent track record of developing and promoting from within – career development is readily available for those who seek it.

What you get

  • Exceptional opportunity for training and development
  • Meals on duty or staff meal allowance
  • 40% Discount in our restaurants and bars
  • Internal transfer and promotion opportunities
  • Brilliant employee recognition schemes
  • Cross exposure to the wider business, events in London and beyond
