This position is best filled by a strategic thinker and partnership builder with strong local roots and a local network. Experience in event management and community partnership building is critical. Having solid local roots is a must in this role for newer coworking spaces. A longer-standing coworking space with a reputation can hire a non-local that doesn’t have a network because the new hire can leverage the space’s existing network for event and partner outreach. This person plans and executes content-driven experiences that inspire members to join the coworking space. The core responsibilities of this person include:
Event Planning and Events Strategy (what types of events to get what results?)
Content/Event Partnership Building and Networking
Event Logistics and Execution
Expanding event space capabilities and quality
All Event Coordinator duties if there isn’t one on the team
Space setup and teardown
Organizing catering and entertainment
Greeting attendees and performing attendee checkins
Testing and running A/V equipment
