Events Coordinator

What we need in a nutshell

We’re looking for an enthusiastic and creative events coordinator to manage a full calendar of events, from wedding celebrations to charity balls, at our new holiday park in Cleethorpes.

Who are we?

We’re a dynamic and growing company, shaking up the Great British holiday at our award-winning UK resorts. Guests at Cleethorpes Pearl enjoy the ultimate getaway, with delights that include a heated lido, live entertainment and award-winning green spaces, all close to the seaside.  Want to find out more about our holidays? Check out our website: http://www.awayresorts.co.uk.

What you’ll be doing

You will be the key point of contact on the park for all the events we host, coordinating events, liaising with outside contractors and internal departments and making sure events run smoothly and successfully. This includes:

  • Coordinating all the operational requirements for each event to be a success
  • Organising and overseeing the events and functions to ensure they run smoothly and learn how we can improve
  • Building productive working relationships with external event organisers and contractors
  • Prioritising communication with clients to ensure they are fully included in the planning
  • Resolving issues as they arise
  • Ensuring all internal teams involved in events are fully briefed and working together.
  • Coordinating promotional materials, working with budgets and overseeing Health and Safety and GDPR considerations

 One more thing…many of our events happen at holiday times, so you’ll need to work your magic on bank holidays and weekends too.

Skills, experience and qualities you’ll need

We aim to deliver delight to our guests and customers, and to do this as Events Coordinator you will need:

  • A good level of general education and to be comfortable with IT, including MS Office
  • Events Management experience including knowledge of bar management
  • Excellent organisational and problem-solving skills with strong attention to detail
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Evidence of team management skills and an ability to motivate and persuade people at all levels
  • A creative, forward-thinking mindset

It’s the icing on the cake, but not essential, if you have an NVQ or Higher in Events Management, holiday park experience and a wide-ranging knowledge of the events and function industry.

We have a can-do, people-centred ethos at Away Resorts, and we look for certain qualities in our team members. Have a read about it and see if you fit the bill.

  • Competitive Pension
  • Bonus Scheme
