When people walk away from your event knowing they will never forget it, that's when you know you're good at what you do. Events that change lives, that spark emotions and bring people together; those are the kind of memorable events that this agency produce. There's no room for mediocre here. Recognising new opportunities in the pipeline, this boutique agency are expanding their team. They are searching for a new Account Executive to join the family.

Responsibilities of the role include;

* Project management - You will be perfectly capable to work independently, as some events will have minimal senior input. This gives you the platform to think creatively, both in managing the project and in dealing with any issues should they arise.
* Supplier management - Having already established some brilliant suppliers, this agency are always on the look out for inspirational additions to make a difference to their projects. You will have an open mind for sourcing and establishing suppliers, with a keen eye for detail and the assertiveness to support them to fulfil their potential. Each event should be as important to them as it is to you.
* Commercial management - Working appropriately to each budget, understanding costs and reporting them accurately without sacrificing agency standards.
* Client service - Each and every client deserves your full attention and passion. You have faith in your own ability to meet their objectives, and you will be authoritative in your opinions so they can trust you as well.
* Business development - You will eat, breath and sleep these events. You will be excited to promote this agency whenever and wherever possible, because managing these events is what excites you. This means business development will come naturally to you, as you will be as unforgettable as the events themselves; you want to be the first person clients think of to run a project.

In return you will get;

* Funky modern offices in Manchester
* A friendly, sociable atmosphere
* Opportunities for internal growth - you will have guidance from some of the best in the industry
* A modern and innovative work environment

A couple of years of experience in the events industry is preferred, this is not a graduate role. You will be thrown in at the deep end, as this is an opportunity to run events by yourself from start to finish and put your own creative stamp on them. This is a chance to bring your imagination to life. If you think you're up to the challenge, apply now.
