Event Planning Manager - Corporate and Social Events


Our Events Team Planners are responsible for organising and overseeing the most amazing events at The Grove.  Whether it’s corporate conferences or weddings and parties, they have the job of building a relationship with the client and helping them decide how the event will run, organising the space, the food, the guest list and finalising the details and finishing touches so that everyone attending experiences the wow factor of the hotel.

It’s a busy role, working on several events simultaneously, so you will need to be organised, efficient and reliable, with a previous track record of planning large scale events and managing a diary.

In addition to building client relationships you will also need to work with key departments in the hotel – chefs, the operations team, front and back of house so communications skills are essential.  Experience of using Delphi would be desirable.

The role is a full time, permanent position and does require weekend and evening working depending on the events you are organising.
