A Birmingham head quartered law firm is looking to hire an Events Executive to join the team focusing on the support for the Birmingham, Reading and Milton Keynes offices to cover a maternity contract. The role sits within the broader business development team and will focus on ensuring the events programme re-inforces the BD goals and will challenge the commercial value for each event.
The role will be to work alongside a wide partner group, understand their objectives and goals and ensure that a comprehensive plan around events is pulled together to meet that requirement. You will take ownership from initial briefing and budget management through to attending the event and ensuring that the necessary introductions are made. Beyond this you will look to qualify/quantify the return on the event by tracking the follow up and ensuring that any wins are accounted for and leads actioned.
The role requires someone who is highly organised with a background in legal marketing and bd. You will be working closely with all areas of the business and so communication skills are critical and the relationships that you form with the partners will be crucial to understanding exactly what you are trying to achieve from any given event, who the target attendees are and ensuring that any appropriate follow up action is taken. The role can be based in any of the office locations although there will be an expectation to travel around all the offices as required as well as attending events so flexibility is required in terms of the hours you work.
In return there is a competitive salary on offer with support and training provided to further your career in a culture which prides itself on personal development.
