Posted May 4, 2023 - Requisition No. 116040

We work hard, and we work fast - while keeping up the quality and accuracy we're known for. It's what keeps us inventing and reinventing, all the time. You're the type of person who has a passion for people and events planning. More so, should you enjoy dealing with people and be someone who knows what customer service really means, we would love to have that initial conversation with you.

  • Project manages mid-high level complex events (in-person, virtual and hybrid programs) effectively to infuse customized, out-of-the-box ideas and solutions for events
  • Lead the creative process, including invitations, in-person and virtual event production, audio visual requirements (including show calling), virtual platforms and components, etc.
  • Lead projects with multiple partners (across different geographies and businesses) and teams from inception to delivery
  • Leverage relationships with business stakeholders to go beyond execution excellence, connecting the products, audiences, and markets to event formats and programs
  • Prepare and align event budgets, negotiate with vendors, ensure payments & reconciliations take place in a timely manner

You'll need to have:

  • Minimum 7 years of event/experiential planning (based in the Middle East)
  • Highly articulate, polished, and able to present to all levels of management
  • The ability to multi-task and work flexibly under tight deadlines
  • Experience integrating events into marketing campaigns; understands the role that events play within the integrated marketing communications framework and works to ensure that the right type of events are being planned at the right time
  • Ability to work successfully and efficiently with minimal supervision; yet seeks and takes direction appropriately 
  • Strong interpersonal skills and very effective working in a team environment

We’d love to see:

  • Track record of success working in and influencing a fast-paced, fast-growing global organization on in-person and virtual events in emerging markets in particular across Africa
  • An Arabic Speaker
  • High energy, problem solving, self-starter, results oriented, proactive individual with a high sense of urgency
  • Ability to effectively lead and influence internal/external partners towards intended and successful results

What’s it like to work here?

We work hard. We are ambitious and set ourselves tough business goals. We are a meritocracy where everyone has a voice - not a job title. Working with people you trust, respect, and can collaborate with is more important than titles or position. Things move fast, and we want people who will enjoy working in this environment and feed off the energy. But it isn’t all about work. Giving back is one of our core values, and there are many ways to get involved in philanthropic initiatives from helping local school kids with their reading to helping clean up local parks and waterways.
