Events Assistant at London's largest Tech Events Venue

at Skills Matter in London

(₤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
Skills Matter supports a 90,000+ community of software developers who regularly come together at Codenode (our 23,000 sq ft events venue), to learn and share skills, discover emerging technologies and evolve practices and ideas. To do that, we bring our members together at thousands of meetups, hackathons, talks, conferences, product launches, pitch and networking events, courses and workshops.



Our members and attendees are simply amazing. Their skills and experience, combined with a strong commitment to share with others, has helped shape our industry today. In 2015, we opened CodeNode, the home for Skills Matter’s community and the UK’s largest venue dedicated to technology events, located in the heart of London’s Tech City.



In it’s first three months alone, Codenode welcomed over 14,000 visitors: passionate software craftsmen and women who share a passion for tackling complex engineering challenges. Engineering teams behind some of the most amazing technology solutions in FinTech, Retail, Media, Gaming and Technology now have the opportunity to share their skills, expertise, tools and devices at Codenode, the UK’s #1 meeting place for the engineering community.



Many new technologies were born at Skills Matter and, as part of our events team, you’ll be supporting this amazing community in coming up with many more innovations!



Sounds exciting? Get in touch!
