We're looking for a conference/content production specialist to step up into the exciting role of Summit Event Director for our client, who specialise in events for the healthcare sector.

You will be responsible for researching, producing and overseeing 5-6 industry leading, commercially viable repeat and launch health conferences / summits that feature strong USPs. This includes determining and identifying the event concept, content timing, format, content, pricing, speakers, sponsors and experience through F2F and telephone based market research.

The role involves taking the lead on the delivery and project management of these events, working alongside and effectively with the editorial, marketing, operations and sales teams to ensure the events achieve their goals and targets and meet the needs of the target audience and sponsors. Whilst initially producing events for a well-established portfolio there is also the scope for the Summit Event Director to take a lead role in topic generation of new events in line with industry trends and demand.

We're looking for a conference professional with a minimum of five years experience. You'll naturally have exceptionally strong research skills and will have a deep understanding of the commercial principles that underpin business to business events. An interest in the public sector - and in healthcare in particular - would be an advantage, but is not essential. A healthy curiosity and desire to learn is!

This role attracts an excellent basic salary and profit share based on the financial performance of your events.
