Are you an experienced project manager with CAD skills and a proven track record of delivery?

Our business creates engaging exhibition stands helping our clients achieve enhanced results from exhibiting at trade exhibitions across Europe and increasingly further afield. This is an exciting, creative and dynamic business with a 100 strong team and purpose-built facility with fantastic equipment and resources.

Our unique formula uses a clever blend of modular hired architecture with bespoke features and graphics to deliver custom stands more efficiently.  With a focus on visitor engagement, we also lead the way in pioneering exciting new ways for our clients to tell their story with investment in technology and digital content creation skills, setting us apart from our traditional rivals.

Key Responsibilities:

Based at our purpose-built premises in Northamptonshire, you will form part of an experienced project management team, coordinating a wide range of processes on each assigned project.

Projects are predominantly delivered in the UK, with some delivered in the EU and further afield. You will be responsible for the physical delivery and financial performance of each project. Normal activities include:

  • developing the sold CAD design through to the final deliverable design
  • coordinating technical details with clients (all post sale)
  • creating bills of materials and fabrication instructions
  • arranging subcontract activities & technical show services
  • Client liaison
  • Oversight of onsite build.

*Internal activities include manufacture of joinery and engineered components, graphics printing and finishing, logistics, on-site installation and dismantle, and integration of our in-house developed engagement offerings.

The Ideal Project Manager:

Our Project Managers play a pivotal role in coordinating our resources and delivering both an exceptional result and great experience for our customers working with our in-house design, fabrication, graphics, AV, installation and content teams. With enviable resources at your fingertips, this is an environment in which an experienced project manager can excel and join a business with serious plans for growth and innovation.

With over 150 active clients and more than 300 projects a year, the ability to work flexibly to seasonal demands is a must; in peak periods additional hours will be required. You will also need to be able to travel to venues, so holding a full UK driving licence and passport are essential. Exhibition or event industry experience is desirable along with experience operating CAD software. Candidates from construction, retail fitout or other similar industries are also invited to apply.

 In return we can offer a competitive salary, 31 days annual leave + 2 additional days for good attendance per year! Paid Overtime, Private Medical Insurance, Cash Health Plan, Death in Service and Pension with employer contribution

Core working hours are Monday to Friday 09:00 to 17:00.
