events co-ordinator

Posted 27/03/2021

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an Events Coordinator to join our busy Suffolk auction house on the outskirts of Ipswich.

This challenging role would suit a mature and versatile individual looking for a varied and interesting working week who is prepared to drive and travel regularly around the UK. The successful applicant will be responsible for scheduling and attending antiques and traders’ fairs so must be highly motivated and have excellent communication and organisational skills, be extremely self-sufficient and exude confidence. Experience in hospitality management or similar will be a plus as this hands-on face-to-face role will require you to meet and build relationships with customers and to represent and promote our company and professional services. Your time would be split between office based event-scheduling tasks and attending the actual events with other team members. The role would be best suited to someone with a very flexible domestic diary as you would need to be available to attend events and stay away on a regular basis, inclusive of some weekends.
