You’ll need an intellectual curiosity to get to grips with complex challenges that come with conference production and be happy working to very tight deadlines. This role offers the opportunity to accelerate your career rapidly, travel internationally and gain a broad understanding of business issues within the science industry.
More about the role
We have a very exciting opportunity for a Life Science Conference Producer role at one of our established portfolio, and you’ll have the responsibility to curate the content for this community – which will ultimately help advance pre-clinical drug discovery to market.
