You and the Company

GLOBE Series’ Operations Coordinator will have defined roles and responsibilities, but will also work closely with team members in other departments for successful delivery of project elements. The event industry is cyclical in nature, therefore deadlines are hard, and hours are guaranteed to be longer in the lead up to key registration deadlines. Flexibility to accommodate this is essential; the flip side – it’s an exciting time, and it’s short-lived. We expect our staff to help build the best culture possible to encourage happiness, productivity, and fun, and provide an exceptional experience for our customers.

This is a contract position from January 2018 until April 2018.
