Job Description

Events Space Coordinator




You’re detailed oriented and organized – at least that’s what people tell you. If there is a problem, you’ll solve it. And whether managing multiple training room calendars, setting up for an event, or finding new ways to improve processes, you can do it all. Variety is vital to your happiness, and you find fulfillment in impressing internal customers with your responsiveness and ability to anticipate needs.

You believe prioritizing is a true art form. Even the tiniest of details deserve your attention, and you take pleasure in checking “complete” on tasks both big and small. Smooth sailing doesn’t happen by accident, and a well-kept and meticulously-crafted workspace is crucial to your organization’s efficiency and success.

  • Maintain high standards of organization of training room calendars, information gathering from customers, and timely and accurate execution of events across multiple locations
