Weddings InStyle & Events InStyle is hiring again! We are looking for a special someone to assist with the upcoming 2013 Season.
Before you shoot off that resume, please review the following to make sure this is you:
- You must understand confidentiality. We are a sounding board for our clients. Like in Las Vegas what happens at 107 Murray stays at 107 Murray. NO EXCEPTIONS!
- Manage client expectations
- Manage and develop a strategic plan of action to ensure that the cost of the event remain within budget
- Search and negotiate suitable venue or locations if outside of our capacity as per the requirement of client and within their budgetary constraints
- Carry out all the functions as per legal guidelines and contract
- Work on determining a suitable layout and theme of the event as per the requirement of the client
- You must have strong communication skills.
- You must be available to work weekends (including Friday).
- You must be a hard worker and understand that while this job can be glamorous, on the day of the event, it’s an extremely physical gig.
- You must be well put together and presentable. We SELL style and drama we DON'T employ it! When we meet, we need to see how you would meet with our clients and vendors. So yes, we will be checking you out: your clothes, your hair, your makeup, your accessories….all of it. Do your clothes fit properly? No tight clothes, cleavage, etc please.
- You must have a great sense of humour and be approachable and social.
- FINALLY, you MUST realize that this job is nothing like the Jennifer Lopez movie.
- Own transportation is a bonus!
