YUST combines short and long-term stays, events, food and culture, located in creative and emerging neighbourhoods. At YUST, the creation of a community between the residents and the locals is our main objective.

ARE YOU THE ONE WE’RE LOOKING FOR? 

Our events are the heartbeat of the YUST community. They range from in-house events; brunch, exhibitions, music sessions, talks.

WHAT DO WE EXPECT FROM YOU?

Everything to do with Event Management: event planning, client contact, budget management, preparation, organisation, and problem-solving. There is no one who can organise and lead an event like you:

  • You thrive in a fast-paced environment and collaborate effectively as part of a team
  • You are sociable, with good communication skills (NL, ENG, FR)
  • You are well-organised; can respect timings and are deadline-oriented

  • You have experience working in the events industry
  • You have some roots in Liège and have a little black book of contacts in the industry

But above all, you stay ahead of the curve, you’re a trendsetter, who knows what the next thing will be before the rest.

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM US?

  • You become part of a young, dynamic and slightly eccentric team with lots of talented people.
  • You’ll play a role in the start and growth of a brand new, modern concept that’s set to conquer Liège
  • Enough independence and support to grow in your role
  • Plenty of opportunities to contribute ideas and collaborate with some awesome brands and artists
  • A competitive paycheque
  • The usual extra-legal benefits
