Events Manager at Bowood House & Gardens, Wiltshire
Bowood House & Gardens
An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the team at Bowood House & Gardens, managing the Estate’s varied event business.
Bowood hosts a diverse range of events each year, from music concerts, car shows and weddings, to mass participation sporting events. In addition, Bowood’s Capability Brown landscape provides a distinctive backdrop for film productions, most recently Poldark, Sanditon and the Downton Abbey film.
The successful applicant will have broad events experience in a relevant setting, ideally a stately home. In addition, you will have managed the full event life cycle on behalf of a venue – from the identification of potential events, through to on-site supervision. You will be a confident communicator with a ‘can do’ attitude, while retaining a clear understanding of the sensitivities when operating in a private heritage environment.
We offer a competitive salary and incentive structure. The role would ideally suit a candidate seeking 2-3 days per week, averaged across the year. However, we will consider alternative arrangements for an exceptional applicant.
If you are a clear thinker with the vision necessary to manage a unique events business, please apply through our website https://www.bowood.org/work-for-us/.
