Events Manager - East Coast

Spring Bay Mill

Welcome to Spring Bay Mill

Glasshouses, chippers, log lines and slew walls, we’re not your average events venue. We’ve up-cycled The Mill’s industrial past into spaces both stunning and functional for performance, weddings, corporate gatherings & retreats, meetings – events of all shapes and sizes.

The Events Manager will oversee and organise events at the Mill that will make an impact for our clients. You’ll ensure events are successful and cost-effective, paying attention to budget and time constraints. Our Events Manager is, above all, a project manager with a good understanding of customer experience and marketing/promotions. We want to see fresh ideas and organisational skills that leave nothing to chance.

The role is full-time and will be based ideally on the East Coast of Tasmania – as you will be required to work at different hours including evenings. You will report to the General Manager and collaborate with the CEO.

Our team is made up of adventurers, storytellers, horticulturists and the odd provocateur. We are looking for a fellow traveller willing to join the team that shares our attitude - we just get it done!
