  • Enthusiastic about the events industry

  • In possession of a valid driver's license

  • Professional in appearance and demeanor

  • Patient and calm in nature

  • Willing to go above and beyond

  • Quick on your feet

  • Able to lift 40lbs

  • Able to follow instructions

  • Able to take constructive criticism

  • Able to sit and/or stand for long periods of time

  • Able to operate AV equipment, HVAC systems and alarm systems

  • Experienced with social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest)

 

Typical Event Assistant  Duties:

  • Unlock/lock the building before and after events

  • Oversee/assist with setup and breakdown of tables/chairs, etc.

  • Interact with clients and event guests to ensure venue needs are being met
