The Role
As an Event + Wedding Lead, you are ready to take the reins and execute projects such as weddings, events, and corporate installations. You oversee a project from beginning to end, starting with the initial client inquiry all the way to project completion and removal. You are a valuable, client-facing team member who has strong organizational and multi-tasking skills.

  • Keep safety in mind at all times
  • Possess excellent spoken English and general communication skills
  • Maintain a professional appearance (work on location may require an all-black dress code)
