This role involves working on Wow’s varied calendar of events, leading on event logistics, organisation and marketing communications.

You’ll be part of the Commercial team, working closely with the Content & Social Media Coordinator and Head of Marketing to plan and deliver Wow’s events. You’ll also be involved with strategy, analysing KPIs plus looking after the associated communications, emails and assets we send to our database about our events.

While the majority of our events are live and online, you will also be heavily involved with our annual, in-person event, BenchPress.

Our specialism is working with agencies and consultancies, so you’ll have come from an agency background (or have worked closely with an agency when in-house). You also don’t need a deep understanding of accounting practices (we’ll leave that to the accountants!) but the capability to understand more technical services and financial information is a must.

Here's how you'll make a big difference to Wow:

  • Owning our events calendar, making sure everything runs to perfection
  • Writing email comms to drive the right audience to our events
  • Helping with venue selection, tech & AV, and logistics for our landmark in-person event
  • Setting up landing pages and registration forms, plus driving conversion to register for our events
  • Working with the rest of the Wow team to write event synopses and choose topics
  • Working with our Content & Social Media Coordinator to maximise event assets
  • Tracking KPIs and analysing event marketing performance

To be successful in this varied role you will need the following:

  • Excellent communication skills - you’ll be brilliant at talking to senior stakeholders and event partners with clarity, plus be able to write very well too.
  • Highly organised - while we use project management tech to organise our workload, you’ll need to stay cool and calm in the sea of around 40-50 events that we either run or are involved with each year. 
  • Good generalist marketing skills - you’re a dab hand at whizzing up email comms, plus know what we mean by things like social assets and conversion rates. 
  • Relevant agency insights or an agency background - you might not have been employed by an agency, but if you know the sector well that’s a great start.
  • You’ll of course need to have relevant event experience too, across both logistics and comms.

Location and working hours

  • The position is full-time, with flexible working around Wow’s core hours of 10am-4pm. There is no fixed start or end time each day.
  • You'll be based in the UK, so you can join us for our quarterly team days and social events.
  • Day-to-day, you get to choose where you work. All you need is your laptop (which we’ll provide) and the internet... and enough snacks to see you through the day!
  • Whilst you have the freedom of remote working, we don't want you to feel remote. Right from the start, you'll feel connected to the amazing Wow team through a series of online and in-person session that will help you build the relationships and get the support you need to thrive in your role.
