|Position||Associate Booking Agent & Digital Content Editor|
|Hours||Monday-Friday, 9am-5.30pm. Plus occasional unpaid overtime.|
You will be based at our office in Leatherhead, Surrey, however, there will be many opportunities to attend events; from client bookings to industry meetings and showcases. It is essential to attend a wide range of events (in and outside of normal office hours) to gain the necessary understanding and experience for the role.
Working alongside the Booking Agents and Directors, you will assist with fulfilling client bookings; from initial enquiry through to event completion. Your day-to-day tasks will include liaising with artists or their representatives; travel and logistics planning and booking; creating detailed itineraries; arranging briefing calls; general office administrative duties and also the Digital Content Editor role.
As you progress in the job, you will be expected to handle basic enquiries – advising clients and determining suitable artists to fit their individual briefs and budgets. You will be expected to promote the artists on our roster, increase sales and cultivate long-term relationships. Researching, identifying and contacting new artists for our roster will also become an important aspect of the role.
As the Digital Content Editor, you will be responsible for updating new and existing artist profiles on our website, writing PPC ad copy, blog posts, FAQs and creating unique content for our social media channels. You will need the ability to transpose an artist's bullet-point resume into engaging copy. You will also be expected to articulate into words an artist's performance or presentation to help summarise what they have to offer potential clients. That may be summarising a keynote speaker or reviewing a live performance, such as a comedian, magician or headline musician.
You need to be self-motivated and work confidently using your own initiative. Nevertheless, we are a small team, so working collaboratively is essential. You need to remain professional whilst dealing with stressful situations and be able to problem-solve under pressure; have excellent interpersonal and communication skills with an exemplary telephone manner. You must be diligent and show exceptional attention to detail. You'll be adaptable and able to manage multiple deadlines in a fast-paced, sometimes stressful, environment.
We would expect you to have a natural aptitude for learning and a strong desire to expand your knowledge. You must have experience using Microsoft Office (Word, Excel and PowerPoint) and the willingness to learn new software (e.g. basic Photoshop, basic Final Cut Pro and TweetDeck); be fully conversant with all common social media platforms (LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, TikTok).
You will have a broad interest in current affairs, politics, culture, sports and the arts. However, we would be keen to learn of any specific areas of interest you may have. Dealing with a wide range of contemporary stand-up comedians and artists you must be broad-minded and not be easily offended.
Experience within the corporate live events industry is beneficial but not a requirement.
To apply, submit your full CV and a detailed covering letter (no more than one A4 page) outlining why the role appeals to you, and why you believe we should consider you for the position. All receipts will be acknowledged, however further correspondence shall only be with the successful applicants.
