VENUE MANAGER

at Dragon Park, aka Clementine and Ruby

Venue managers are pilots of the plane (or building).

T

he Venue Manager position at Dragon Park’s venues has a singular focus on our facilities, and not the specialized details of events themselves.  We are designers and facility operators and do not act in the capacity of a coordinator or other vendors who routinely service events in our spaces.

Duties

Facilities Oversight
Management of the venue: before, during and after an event.  The day begins with opening the facility with routine as well as customized set up for the event. Throughout the event day, vendor oversight as it relates to our spaces is needed as vendors set up and prepare, service and then tear down and load out.  During the event you will also welcome clients and guests, and ensure building related aspects are on point. At the end of the day, you will perform internal closing duties and closing of the facility.

Vendor Management
Events in our spaces usually require numerous vendors to perform the many services required.  Monitoring vendor performance in our spaces is paramount to both a successful event for the client, as well as the good care of our facility.  We see the same vendors often at our facilities and call many friends.  They are also a source of referral business.  We therefore treat them as guests-with-obligations: to be considerate to both our facility and the client and their guests.

Client Satisfaction
Our events are held at the pleasure of our clients:  bride/groom, companies, non-profits and individuals.  We may not have seen the client for some time before their event, but they selected us primarily for the quality, comprehensive nature, and meticulous manner in which we keep our spaces.  During the event, we must maintain the client’s trust with our professionalism and the over delivery of their expectations.

Requirements

Facility Related
Our facilities are high-end and demand a keen eye for detail to deliver our venues in exceptional form, every time.  Complex audio, video, lighting and other systems require a reasonable comfort level with technology. Logical, problem-solving and a checklist mentality are key.   

Interpersonal
Events held at our spaces are comprised of groups of people who enjoy an inspiring atmosphere for their festivities.  Since all events are, in their essence, people - the client, their guests, and their vendors - being able to relate to people at once in an expert, mature, welcoming but authoritative manner is a critical recipe.

Schedule

This is a part time, hourly position with assignments falling upon event days, which are generally Friday, Saturdays and Sundays.  Shifts usually begin at 9 am or late afternoon and last approximately 8 hours. We require a commitment of at least two shifts per month.

Compensation

Hourly compensation begins at $25/hr, escalating according to ability and commitment. We also give event bonuses that increase this considerably.
