About the Role

We are looking to hire a go-getter, creative events manager who can lead the development and delivery of world class events from live to virtual and everything in between in Japan. You should not be afraid to push the envelope and bring new ideas to the table, as well as experiment with the latest tools and technologies to elevate our events into unique-to-Netflix experiences. You will have amazing attention to detail, the ability to see the big picture and clearly articulate your vision to internal and external stakeholders, as well as the ability to partner seamlessly, and execute flawlessly in Japan and for Japanese Content in partnership with the regional team of seasoned professionals who specialize in events.

Reporting to the PR Director for Japan, the role combines project management with partnerships, strategic thinking, execution and the smart use of resources for maximum impact. You will need to have strong cross-functional relationships to create, shape, execute and manage events for Netflix content.

The work:
• Creative conceptualization, crafting of creative proposals and quotations

• Adaptable to hybrid or virtual events, with knowledge of what it takes online and off, including the latest tools, platforms and technologies to bring our vision to life
• External vendor and agency management and supervision
• Provide team with strategic direction on sourcing of venues, vendors, entertainment and event related requirements
• Superior project, budget and time management skills, within tight deadlines

The candidate must:
• 10+ yrs of events experience preferably from the entertainment industry that includes managing, executing, planning and staffing events at an agency, studio, network or with a brand (experience in film or television awards campaigns is a bonus)
• A self starter who is able to work independently, and under pressure, while consistently exercising sound judgement even when faced with ambiguity
• Articulate what is and is not required to deliver a successful campaign
• Be transparent and unafraid to challenge, ask questions or call out obstacles
• Agile with meticulous attention to details
