Events Manager

Love retail? Looking to make an impact with high impact, agenda-setting industry events? Join our dynamic team at the Australian Retailers Association - peak body for the $362 billion retail sector and help us make a difference. You will lead and design our events strategy, and execute on a range of hallmark events for members and the broader retail sector.

We are looking for a creative, innovative and highly operational Events Superstar to create memorable events for a leading industry association. With a proven track record of successful events, face-to-face and virtual, you get excited when given the reigns to create and run momentous events attended by prominent people in the retail industry.

You’ve got all the right skills to run events from end-to-end and within budget. You’ll be working in a small team and not afraid to roll up your sleeves to do what it takes to execute the perfect event. There are a number of events in the pipeline so you must be ready to hit the ground running including webinars, sponsored lunches and larger conference-style events.

With COVID-19, we’ve seen great interest in transforming our traditional events into virtual events so if you thrive on thinking outside the box to create engaging small, medium and large-scale B2B virtual events, then we’d like to speak with you.

Selection Criteria:

  • At least 2 years’ experience in a similar role
  • Project management skills
  • Relationship management skills
  • Experience running virtual B2B events of all sizes
  • Experience running face-to-face B2B events of all sizes
  • Creative flair and history of interesting events run by you
  • Ability to work autonomously
  • Able to work under pressure
  • Work flexibly
  • Outcome focused

Why Work for the ARA:

The ARA is a national leading industry body for retail and our small but hard working team works flexibly across Australia. We advocate for strong work and life balance for all of our employees. We use modern technology to collaborate and work together seamlessly.
