The Business Leaders Network (BLN) runs events – workshops, dinners and conferences – for entrepreneurs and investors engaged in building growth businesses. Founded in the month prior to the Lehman Bros crash, we have grown steadily over the past 18 months in a tough market environment. We now need some more people to help us!
The Role Building on our reputation and existing event programme, we are now looking to develop our event programme and membership model. We are looking for support, initially part-time, to help manage a busy office, take control of the development and delivery of specific events and to develop a membership programme.
We require an individual who is capable and eager to take ownership of tasks to ensure that not only are deadlines met, but with the highest quality results. With too much to be done every day, we can tailor the role to suit the right candidate’s skill set.
You will liaise with existing and prospective BLN members, as well as working with other professionals. You will be able to pick new things up quickly and be prepared to work in a small team. The role will also involve putting together event booklets and delegate material, as well as managing project plans.
Candidates are likely to have experience in some of the following: event management; conference production; membership management; investor relations; corporate finance; event marketing; web site management; blogging. This is a role for a candidate who is looking to work in a fast-paced and dynamic environment for 2 days per week, with the potential for additional work opportunities from home.
– Communicating regularly with clients & responding to enquiries
– Maintaining & updating current records
– Identifying potential future BLN members from a range of sources
– Helping to secure attendees for events
– Ensuring a high degree of accuracy in the production of BLN documents/reports
– Ad-hoc project flexibility
– Event management assistance
Hours We will be as flexible as possible in terms of working hours – we recognise that sometimes the best people for a role don’t have the luxury of a 9-5 lifestyle. The role could be particularly suitable for example for a parent who is looking to move back into the real world.
How to Apply: To apply please simply send your CV and a covering letter via email to darren@TheBLN.com. We will review all applicants and respond back to you. Successful applications will be called for interview shortly afterwards.
