Hiring for an Events Assistant

by Aug 19, 2019

As a top performer in this role, you have a knack for anticipating what clients need. You always have a positive attitude and have a “yes, if” approach to customer service. You work independently and don’t need someone to inspect your work, but you welcome direction and guidance when that happens. You may have a retail sales or hospitality background, though they’re not necessary nor required. You are self-starting and complete every checklist before heading home.

The Mill is Bloomington’s center of gravity for innovators, remote workers, entrepreneurs, and creators. We renovated a 104-year-old building from the Showers Brothers Furniture Company and transformed it into a 19,000 square-foot coworking space and business incubator. You’ll be working in a stunning building with exposed brick and original wood that seamlessly blends old and new, at the heart of the technology and innovation community.

Already a major driver of innovation in our community, The Mill is home to 25 companies and 225 members. They’re part of the infrastructure we’re building for the 21st century—talent, capital, and training—to help our City and State evolve in the new economy. Operating as a 501(c)(3) non-profit, our mission is to launch and accelerate high-potential companies, and our vision is to become the center of coworking and entrepreneurship in Indiana.

We are adding a full-time Events Assistant. This position will help our Membership and Events Manager host our clients and coordinate internal events for our members (some evenings and weekends required). Your responsibilities include but are not limited to event setup, event teardown, room reset, research projects, email correspondence, event signage, welcoming guests, assisting with tours, and event hosting and supervision.
The Mill is still new and we don’t know what we don’t know. You should be eager and willing to tackle new experiences and situations, and you’ll need to execute against them flawlessly. You need to be a jack-of-all-trades and master of them too.

Annual salary is $28,500-$30,000 and is commensurate with experience.

• Giving tours to potential members
• Sending proposals for the for-rent event spaces
• Coordinating members-only events
• Writing website copy for specific audiences
• Opening/closing the building
• Buying supplies
• Using Proximity Space to manage reservations and invoices
• Making morning coffee
