Events Manager

Norrsken is looking for an Events Manager; an outstanding team member to create amazing experiences at Norrsken House and to manage external organisations’ events in our spaces.

We’re on a mission to put a positive ding in the universe. We’re proud of where we’ve got so far, but we’re just getting started. As the Events Manager, you will play a crucial role in working towards our mission. You will help us create the WOW-effect by curating exciting Norrsken events and also ensure that our members, partners and external organisations have first-class experience in hosting their events in our spaces.

We bring together inspiring conversations at the intersection of impact, technology and entrepreneurship to explore, collaborate, educate, connect, inspire and co-create solutions to the most pressing global challenges. We just hosted Edward Snowden, engaged an exciting audience and took a deep dive into data privacy questions, one of the most pressing societal challenges these days. What topic would you want to tackle? Who is your hero that you would proud to bring to Norrsken House?

You will join the team as Events Manager and replace Thom Feeney, who will take the next step and focus on Norrsken House Stockholm operations and partnerships. Are you our next fantastic teammate who we cannot wait to meet?

A job at Norrsken will be demanding, it may be long hours and challenging work. But it will also give you the opportunity of a lifetime to work on ideas and solutions that truly drive positive impact in society.

Among other things, your responsibilities will be:

  • Curating and organizing Norrsken Sessions
  • Creating one-off special events at Norrsken House
  • Developing partnership events
  • Managing external requests to hold events in our two event spaces
  • Administration of event staff, food, drinks and technical equipment

Keep in mind that Norrsken is a startup at heart. We don’t know where this journey will take us. Things change fast, new opportunities come out of the blue, and as a result, your responsibilities will change over time as well.

We actively seek to recruit talented people from all backgrounds and will consider all combinations of work experience, academic qualifications and extracurricular activities when selecting candidates to interview.

We think you are capable of increasing the bar and taking Norrsken events to the next level. You would also do an excellent job creating a smooth experience, from beginning to end, for anyone hosting an event at Norrsken House. You are an energetic, creative, tech-savvy and meticulous talent that can plan, coordinate and execute events. You can work on multiple projects at the same time and know how to prioritize high and low tasks. You may still be early in your career but you have events experience, preferably in the startup world. You also love learning and take pride in resourcefulness - if you don't know how to do something, you figure it out or you know who to ask.

We will recruit the right person for this role as soon as possible, so don’t wait with your application. Please include the following information when you apply:

  • Education (please include subjects and grades/scores)
  • Personal statement: Your motivation for applying in 300 words or fewer
  • CV/Resume
  • Language skills: Information regarding your proficiency in languages. Our working language at Norrsken is English.
  • Any additional relevant information such as recommendations or reference letters.

We look forward to hearing from you!
