Event Manager at Codenode

at Skills Matter in London

(₤22500 - ₤27000 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 Manager to help us host hundreds of events organised at Codenode – London’s largest venue dedicated to Technology Events. You will help our clients with the space and services they need to create an awesome event experience. 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 Manager to support the successful delivery of tech events that are organised by our clients at Codenode, our funky tech events venue. You’ll be involved in all aspects of event delivery, from capturing the experience our clients want to create to ensuring a successful delivery during the event. You will be coordinating the successful set up of hired event spaces, the delivery of services by our internal teams (AV, Reception, Ushers), and the timely provision of services by third party suppliers. 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 may be briefing 5 different teams on the tasks of the day. Shortly after you may be welcoming the world’s top technology speakers at our reception, or you might jump on a call to one of our suppliers to get that special favour that will make our 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 enable our community to discover, learn and share ideas and technologies that help with this challenge… at our own events and at events organised by our clients.


Every day, hundreds of us get together at Skills Matter’s venue, baptised Codenode, to attend 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 creative, highly organised and quick-thinking graduates, with a passion for people and technology, who can help make every event our clients organise a truly memorable and positive experience.
