VACANCIES

Head of Event Operations

We’re on the lookout for an awesome new Head of Event Operations to lead, manage and develop our bright and energetic young events team, overseeing the organisation and execution of a revolving line-up of high profile brand activations, product launches, press dinners, workshops, weddings, private parties, live performances and just about every other kind of event you can think of.

The beauty of Carousel is that no two days here are ever the same. Achieving that takes careful planning and meticulous choreography, juggling multiple spaces and multiple moving parts. Candidates must therefore have excellent interpersonal and organisational skills, and an unflinching ability to think calmly and creatively under pressure. If you fit that profile and you like the sound of heading up the UK’s ‘best venue team’ (2018 Campaign Event Awards), we’d love to hear from you.

Carousel is an award-winning creative hub that can accommodate events of all different kinds, from international guest chef residencies and art exhibitions to brand activations and press days. Split across three buildings – two in Marylebone and one in Seven Dials – and totalling just under 8,000 sq. ft., Carousel’s stylish and ultra-flexible blank canvas spaces can accommodate events of all different shapes and sizes, dry hire or bespoke. And unlike conventional event venues we’re able to offer a wide range of additional extras, all done in-house to the highest standard, thoughtfully and creatively; from top-notch food and drink to friendly staffing and creative in-house production.

2019 promises to be our most exciting yet as we look to expand the Carousel footprint, taking on new sites and continuing to partner up with an impressive portfolio of cutting edge brands such as Converse, Glossier, Tabasco, Estée Lauder, Drunk Elephant, Nikon, Lulu Lemon, Google, Penguin, Instagram, The Guardian and the NFL.
