Marketeers are critical to our business; people who really understand their visitor, won’t leave any avenue unexplored and won’t stop selling tickets until the doors close. And we need Operations people who thrive in the creative process of turning a floor plan into reality and can drive a hard bargain when it comes to buying everything we need for an event.

VALUES

Family
Sometimes dysfunctional, sometimes a bit rowdy, always in it together. We win as a team, we look after each other, if we fail; we do as a team too. We want you to be you – hopes and ambitions, flaws and imperfections, ideas and challenges. We’d like to be part of your story not your CV.

Getting better
What we do is difficult and involves making mistakes. We want to learn how to run better shows, and have happier customers. We want you to learn how to be better at what you do. We want you to be the best. Love mistakes but don’t repeat them.

Pioneers
To infinity and beyond- we have a great tradition of creating new events. We like doing things for the first time. We like it when we are copied or when people wish they’d thought of something first. Trying new things is risky- we like taking risks. Ask ballsy questions and try something new every day.

Plain speaking
We dislike business speak. Tell it like you’d tell your mum or your mates in the pub. Plain speaking increases understanding and honesty. Good questions make us better. Kind but direct isn’t rude it’s helpful. Never speak like you are on the apprentice or trying to sound important.
