Tenacious? A great researcher? Can you think creatively to identify what makes something commercially successful? If so, we want to speak with you! We’re looking for a Conference Producer to join Reuters Events, a fast-growing team within Reuters, based in London. If you want real responsibility, control of a budget from your first day and the opportunity to develop your career quickly, this might just be the role for you.

Reuters Events deliver world-class conferences and content across the globe, and work with industry leaders and visionaries to provide the critical intelligence that senior level executives need to make strategic decisions.

We’re looking for motivated individuals who want to have a positive impact on the world, on critical industries and the communities working within them.

About the role

As a Conference Producer at Reuters Events, you will:

  • Have a positive impact on a range of critical industries (such as legal, pharmaceutical, energy and finance) by working with leading brands and figures within these sectors. Your conferences will ultimately shape how these industries react to specific opportunities and variety of challenges.
  • Create world-class events and develop excellent commercial skills.
  • Be responsible for the commercial success of major industry conferences. This includes including hitting revenue and attendance targets and setting sales strategies covering the scope of your entire projects.
  • Research markets, get to grips with hot business issues, develop conference agendas and conduct high-profile marketing campaigns.
  • Be part of a collaborative, diverse and inspired team.
  • To be absolutely clear, you will be a conference creator not a conference organiser! You won’t be answerable to a client, organising coffee or booking space at hotels.

About you

To be our Graduate Conference Producer, you will likely:

  • Have a degree in any discipline with the desire to learn how to create intriguing and exciting conferences (full training provided).
  • Be commercially driven and keen to understand the commercial drivers behind our customers decisions, as our job is to help them make smarter ones!
  • An interest in business is a must, as is an entrepreneurial spirit, a readiness to take responsibility for your work and, of course, great communication skills.
  • Thrive in a fast-paced, collaborative, high-growth environment and work well in a team.
  • Not need prior experience of working in conferences. We look for people who have done interesting things with their time – and who can grow and develop – rather than those who just have good qualifications.
  • Have the ability to identify new and interesting business trends coupled with the drive to develop great events that senior business people can’t afford to miss.
  • Communication and research and analytical skills are essential, along with an entrepreneurial flair and a target-driven mindset.

Please note: the deadline for applications is 23:59 on Sunday 23rd June 2024. We are reviewing applications on an ongoing basis and early applications are strongly encouraged.
