Events Manager - EMEA
Streaming – Publicity
Fueled by the broad appeal of being able to instantly enjoy unlimited movies and TV shows, Netflix has grown to have over 130 million streaming members in over 190 countries. This is a great opportunity to join a team that is spearheading promotional campaigns for such a fast growing and highly admired company, with a chance to strategize, plan and execute events alongside a team that is working on series and films that feature high production value from the brightest filmmakers and actors in the industry, using the latest technology.
The successful candidate will play a key role in strategizing, executing and managing events for the publicity team, which crosses documentaries, series and film. They are a member of a small, seasoned group of professionals, who will be based in our Amsterdam office & orientating around our EMEA business.
The Manager will work alongside the team that is helping to create, shape, execute and manage campaigns for our content, meaning that they will have to be in sync and show a curiosity about promotional efforts and contribute to improve campaigns with new and innovative event ideas. The ideal candidate has worked handling events for film, TV or entertainment brands. If they have experience working in film or television awards campaigns, that is a bonus. This person will be able to strategize & execute as part of a varied group of internal stakeholders. They can formulate and manage a budget, and give visibility into their process successfully. Pack your bag because international travel is a requirement.
They are able to make wise decisions, even when faced with ambiguity and thinks strategically. This person can articulate what they are - and are not - trying to do. They are a good listener and a real doer. They are organized, thorough and not afraid to get their hands dirty - and that will mean jumping in to handle tasks that range from hiring an agency to plan an event, to maintaining and updating guest lists, to booking a venue themselves for an event or to working a check-in table. The responsibility is wide-ranging. They collaborate well with partners that range from the publicists overseeing local and pan-regional campaign strategy to content/programming to marketing to social to product and beyond. Strong candidates can handle a vast amount of work and they are eager to learn. They are curious and also contribute effectively outside of their speciality. A good fit in the role has a candid and direct communication style, they are willing to admit to mistakes quickly and questions values inconsistent with our values.
The successful candidate for Events Manager EMEA will have at least 7+ years of entertainment experience organizing, planning, executing and staffing events at an agency, studio, network or with a brand. BA/BS required.
Netflix offers an attractive compensation package consisting of base salary, stock options, 401K (with match), comprehensive benefits and relocation.
