This is a unique opportunity to take on a 2IC venue management role, working with a diverse portfolio of commercial clients across the live music and corporate sector, paired with budgetary and creative freedom to guide the programming of student events both in venue and on the UNSW campus.
Relaunched in March 2018, Roundhouse is home to awesome events on UNSW campus. From corporate conferences to concerts, Roundhouse is a unique venue in Sydney delivering high-quality events across the events spectrum.
The venue encompasses a concert hall, two bars, a beer garden, two lounge areas, and seven conference rooms.

You will lead the events team, be responsible for managing and responding to enquiries, have accountability for event budgets, lead venue set-ups, and be a primary point of contact for clients during events. You will contribute to the drive for commercial revenue and growth across commercial markets, and steer our student events programming to build engagement with our core UNSW demographic.
Who We Are Looking For
We are looking for an experienced events professional who can bring strategic thinking, strong commercial acumen and a demonstrated ability to set and meet targets and drive outcomes for the venue. You will have excellent stakeholder and people management skills, have experience winning business and managing clients in a venue, and be someone who thrives in a fast-paced environment. Previous experience in a similar role is essential.
As importantly, we're looking for someone who shares our values and culture, who brings passion and positivity, and make sure their team embodies the same culture.
