Role Profile  

The right candidate for this role will be a versatile chameleon and a pillar of support for the SPECTRA team.  

 

You thrive in organized chaos and can easily pivot between tasks. You are able to manage interruptions and quickly re-prioritize your to-do list as new information becomes available. Not only are you able to get the day-to-day work done, but you can always see the bigger picture and can help steer the ship in the right direction to accomplish strategic projects and long-term goals.  

   

Prior experience in the event, film or production industries would be a big help in tackling a steep learning curve, as this role supports both the high-level business needs, but also advises the team on micro decisions directly related to the event design services SPECTRA prides itself upon.  

 

While this role has set job duties and requirements, at SPECTRA we recognize that talent comes in a variety of ways and that skills are transferable. Dazzle us with your work experience and roster of abilities. Please apply if you feel you meet most of the requirements listed.
