Yolk Recruitment is recruiting for an Events Manager to work with a global transportation and logistics giant on an exciting project.

We are looking for an experienced independent consultant/event manager to coordinate high-profile events and help maintain and expand our relationship network.

Closing date for submission is the 19th of July


The companies Hospitality & Events department is responsible for the organisation of various types of (online and physical) events. On the one hand, B2B events for relationship marketing, ranging from trade fair participation to conferences, workshops and milestone events for 10 - 400 guests.

On the other hand, staff events and corporate hospitality events that arise from the activation of sponsoring. For each event, you will participate in a kick-off meeting with internal and external customers to discuss the outline and provide your advice. You then translate this into the final operational output, which you are in charge of. You make sure that the event is prepared down to the last detail. You are in close contact with locations and suppliers and you monitor the budget. In the run-up to an event, you are an experienced point of contact with a helicopter view for all parties involved.

During the event, you will be present to oversee the event. The evaluation afterwards provides insight into the ROI and indicates how we can further fine-tune the next event. In practice, you will work on multiple events at the same time, from small to large.

Experience Required:

  • Minimum HBO working and thinking level
  • A completed education, e.g. Event Management or Hotel School
  • You have at least 3-5 years of experience in organizing events.
  • You have been demonstrably responsible for complex events.
  • You work in a structured way, keep an overview and are the director of a wide range of events and trade fair participation.
  • You have a driver's license B
  • You can express yourself well in English, possibly also in German.

Desirable Experience:
