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. We’re looking for a creative and social Event Manager to grow our community in our brand-new location YUST Liège. Opening in April 2022.

 

ARE YOU THE ONE WE’RE LOOKING FOR? 

Our events are the heartbeat of the YUST community. They range from in-house events to external events. Reporting directly to the Food & Events Manager you’ll oversee & manage:

In-house events (weekly Sunday brunch, art exhibitions, music sessions etc.):

  • You’re responsible for creating a monthly calendar of unique events that attract guests, residents, and locals.
  • You’re in charge of making sure YUST becomes a Liège hotspot and the place to be when it comes to events.
  • You’ll organise events from A-Z; pre-event organisation & communication, hosting, event logistics, managing event staff, being point of contact and managing the budget (daily follow up and invoicing)
  • You’ll work closely with the marketing manager and help determine event marketing strategies

External events (meetings, corporate events, product launches etc.):

  • You’ll manage the CRM system: contacting and handling prospective leads, making quotes, and giving tours to potential clients
  • You’ll discuss the wishes and needs of the customer and act accordingly
  • You’ll organise the event from A-Z; pre-event organisation & communication, event logistics, managing event staff, being point of contact for the client and managing the budget (daily follow up and invoicing)
  • You’ll report post event analytics and feedback

Don’t worry, when you have stylish meeting rooms, a fire pit, a delicious restaurant, and a rooftop, organising events is incredibly fun.

If you’re looking to connect with likeminded people, love discovering new food, art & music and enjoy inspiring talks & exhibitions. You may yust be who we’re looking for.

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 have experience working in the events industry
  • You are a problem solving/practical thinker, you are proactive and troubleshoot problems before they occur
  • You thrive in a fast-paced environment and collaborate effectively as part of a team
  • You are sociable, with good communication skills (ENG & FR is a must, NL is a plus)
  • You are well-organised; can respect timings and are deadline-oriented
  • You are proficient in Microsoft Office (e.g., Word, Excel, and PowerPoint)
  • 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
