Venue Sourcing Consultant (maternity cover)

Venue consultancy at Grass Roots Meetings & Events.

Grass Roots operate Meetings and Events services from key locations in London, New York, Dusseldorf and Zurich. 

Specialists in strategic meetings management and delegate management, Grass Roots work with three of the Big Four professional services firms; nine of the top 15 investment banks and many other global organisations. We manage over £150m worth of meeting spend, drive compliance within organisations and focus on improving the performance of meetings and events programs.

We’re recruiting for a motivated, confident venue sourcing consultant with a good knowledge of the events industry, and experience in venue sourcing; people who know what it takes to go above and beyond client expectations to find them the best possible location for their occasion – at the right price. 

We are looking for people who are flexible, self-motivated and can work well as part of a team; people who are highly organised, thrive on pressure with keen attention to detail. The successful candidates will be required to manage multiple enquiries against very tight deadlines, and will be customer focused at all times. Experience tells us that people from a hotel background work well in these roles, and we will consider graduates who have covered areas of this role in their degree.

So if you’re able to share your expert knowledge, insight and relationships with the best hotels, meeting rooms and quirky spaces, you could be just the person for the job. Above all, you need to be able to build rapport with both clients and suppliers and to deliver solutions to challenging requests in a fast-paced environment. Of course, you’ll also need the usual skills, such as financial acumen and excellent communication.

It is a particularly exciting time to join our company, so if you want to be part of the continued development of a successful business, get in touch.
