Events Administrator

We’re looking for an experienced and dedicated events professional to join our Customer Engagement marketing team ASAP! In 2019 we’ll be expanding our tradeshows and customer events calendar to support Redgate’s initiatives, and you will be responsible for supporting our events team to ensure for successful execution of the events plan.

This is a busy and varied role. You’ll be responsible for supporting the logistics of the events Redgate attends and sponsors, so a typical day might include working with our sales and marketing teams to understand what’s needed for each event, speaking with external suppliers to arrange new collateral and order swag, or managing the event inboxes and event pages.

We’re looking for someone who is experienced working in an events role, and who isn’t afraid to get stuck in across all aspects of event management.

The ideal candidate will feel passionate about delivering world class events and creating unforgettable experiences for our customers.

To apply, simply upload your CV and covering letter or get in touch if you’d like to talk to us first.

The Redgate Recruitment process

Step 1

Step 1. Application

Step one is your application. So write a letter and upload it on the page for the job you’re interested in. Tell us about yourself, your skills and experience, and talk about why you’d like to work at Redgate. Include a CV, or a link to your LinkedIn page, and if you'd like to show some of your work, attach your portfolio or point us to Stack Overflow or GitHub.

Step 2

Step 2. Assessment

We’ll acknowledge your application straight away, review it and keep you updated on your progress. We might also email an assessment to complete, or invite you for a brief telephone interview. If we don’t think you’re suitable, we’ll inform you – and tell you why. We won’t let you down, we’ll try and help you.

Step 3

Step 3. 1st Interview

Step three is an interview in our Cambridge office. We’ll talk about your work history, your covering letter or video, and any assessments you’ve completed. You might also be asked to do some work-based tests and, if you’re applying for a technical role, expect technical questions – we love talking tech.

Step 4

Step 4. 2nd Interview

The second interview typically lasts two hours. You’ll be talking to different people, you may well meet people you’ll be working with, and we’ll allow time for you to ask questions. We don’t have a dress code at Redgate, by the way, so dress in whatever makes you comfortable.

Step 1

Step 5. Offer

If we think you’d be great at Redgate, we’ll make an offer and iron out any details like relocation issues. If we don’t think you’ll fit in right away, we’ll tell you why. Some people have taken our advice, boned up their knowledge and come back a year later and got a job. It helps.

This is our typical recruitment process, though for some roles it might be a bit different.
