GLL is looking for an flexible Events Duty Manager to ensure the smooth day-to-day running of Bath Pavilion in Bath, Somerset.


You'll thrive on making our clients and guests feel special whether they're high-profile, public figures or not. This is a largely hands-on role where you'll provide support to the wider events team, as well as to clients before, during and after events with the view to retaining their business on the back of our excellent service. You'll be part of a team that you'll inspire with your accuracy around health and safety procedures, security and sales. Your previous experience working in events will have taught you that this isn't a 9-5 job. With events running late into the night, you could be working shifts that don't finish until 3am where you'll be expected to close the building.

Friendly and likeable but able to command respect, you'll be confident giving tours of the venue to potential clients / customers, answering phones, managing bars and staff and planning duty rotas. Ideally you'll have a mix of operational and sales experience from an events background.
