Members can play, pause and resume watching, as much as they want, anytime, anywhere, and can change their plans at any time. To support this growth, we are looking for an Event Specialist for the UK who will be based out of our office in London.

The Role

This UK Event Specialist will play a key role in strategizing, executing and managing external and some large scale internal events as part of the publicity and marketing team. They will be a member of a broader, seasoned group of events professionals who are based across the local offices in EMEA.

More broadly the goal of the team is to drive conversation around Netflix titles, talent and the brand through curated external events and experiences. The specialist will work with other events team members and the cross functional team that is helping to create, shape, execute and manage campaigns for our content, meaning that they will have to be in sync and show a curiosity about promotional efforts and contribute to building campaigns with new and innovative event ideas. This is also a hands-on role and one that requires end to end project management of some events, whilst also working as a support on other events. This will involve varying tasks such as leading cross functional project taskforce groups, managing agency pitches, ideating event creative, overseeing guest communications, formulating budgets, handling event admin and much more.

Success in the role is someone who can simplify even the most challenging of situations, leaving partners and talent impressed and feeling like their event is in very safe and trusted hands.
