Senior Event Producer

Senior Event Producer

Events Management

You’re a certain kind of adrenaline junky. The kind who sometimes wonders if your genetic code was sequenced precisely to handle the rush of live events. In the eye of a raging storm, you’re cool as ice. And nothing makes your soul sing like delivering the flawless performance of a minute-by-minute cue sheet.

You have the rare ability to see the world through multiple lenses – a dreamer with the vision and know-how to bring your ideas to life. Analytical and results-driven, you value careful post-event analysis, but you know how to celebrate success. As a natural relationship builder, you appreciate the support of a strong team and ensure that every person plays their part seamlessly.

Our team seeks a dynamic leader like you to come stir up some excitement. As an event producer on our team, you’ll develop and execute an ever-changing lineup of meetings, conferences and special events to support our educational mission. If you are an entrepreneurial-minded self-starter, excited about applying your passion and project management experience to help us advance the ideas of a free and open society where all can flourish, apply now!

• Executing and evaluating events (including communicating with attendees, hosting VIPs and writing post-event reports)
• Helping to develop and maintain standard operating procedures for events to help the Institute maintain a high level of service and event quality
• Contributing to the development and training of junior staff
