Events Assistant at London's largest Tech Events Venue

at Skills Matter in London

(₤19000 - ₤21000 per year)

Are you a natural organiser? Someone who can talk to anyone, both flexible and fearless? Can you own it, make it bigger and better? Looking for an opportunity to channel your fantastic people skills and natural organising ability into growing an exciting startup with a fantastic community in London’s largest Tech Events Venue?


If that sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you!


We’re looking for an Events Assistant to help us deliver thousands of events organised for and by Skills Matter, our community and our clients every year. This role is highly visible so we’ll need you to be as friendly, helpful, smart, inclusive and outgoing as the thousands of software engineers we welcome here at Skills Matter every year.



As we are growing fast, we are looking for people who are keen to grow with us. If you work well in a team, have a can-do attitude and are keen to learn – from everything, every day – we’d love you to come show us what you’re made of and see you progress your career at Skills Matter.



About the role
We’re looking for an Events Assistant to work on our afternoon/evening shift from 1pm to 10pm. You’ll be involved in all aspects of event delivery. This is a very busy, fast-moving and varied role so you’ll need to enjoy that type of environment. A typical day? No day will be the same! One moment you’ll be cable trunking under a long row or desks, the next minute you are welcoming the world’s top technology speakers at our reception. Shortly after you may be testing mics, followed by a brief stint behind our licensed {{SpaceBar}}, after which you may be working with one of the event managers to set up an entire space, or you might jump on a call to one of our suppliers to get that special favour that will make a client super happy.



About us
We are a community of software craftsmen and women, with a passion for tackling complex engineering challenges, known for sharing our skills and experience with others.


We are experts in building adaptable, flexible and scalable systems with big data sets and regularly come together at related talks, conferences, meetups and workshops. We enable our community to discover, learn and share ideas and technologies that help with this challenge.


Every day, hundreds of us get together at Skills Matter, for events, or simply to meet for a chat and a drink at our fully licensed {{SpaceBar}}. Together, we have become a thriving ecosystem, that has given birth to many great technologies and ideas.


With more than 95,000 engineers regularly coming together, we are now Europe’s largest community of software engineers and ever growing!


We are looking for some creative, quick-thinking graduates, with a passion for people and technology, to help us to continue to grow.



Sounds exciting? Get in touch!


Send us us your CV with an email explaining why you’d like to be part of our team and how you think you could make a difference – and we’ll be in touch shortly!!
