While iDaph Events has been officially operating since 2011, our company operates closer to a start-up with all team members wearing multiple hats and committing directly to the bottom line success of iDaph Events.
This job is not for the faint of heart, as neither is the special events industry. Physical labor, heavy lifting and working weekends, holidays and long hours during event weekends are imperative to the success of this role. The ideal candidate should already understand this from personal experience if he or she meets the requirements set forth in the expectations of those applying for this job.
This job will require independent work during the week, mostly in front of the computer and the occasional weekend work would be outside in any and all types of weather conditions. There is some flexibility with this job (part-time or full-time) and the ability to work remotely. We are looking to fill this position immediately.
The person in this position will be expected to understand, embrace, and execute the vision of iDaph Events and to conduct business professionally at all times.
