HIRING A HUSTLER (OR TWO)
And just like that... wedding season 2014 is over. I'll be posting plenty of pretty from this past year, but first, I'd like to take a moment to look ahead to 2015. I'm so excited about the weddings I have on the calendar for next year and can only imagine, with booking season all but upon us, that I'll be adding a few more awesome events to the mix. That said, I NEED HELP!
Interested in becoming part of the Vanessa Noel Events team or know someone who might be? Read on, friend.
WHAT YOU'LL DO:
I'm hiring a day-of assistant to help on the day of a wedding or event to execute details and keep things running smoothly. All events occur on weekends and are sporadic. Tasks may include, but are not limited to; setting table numbers, ceremony programs, votive candles, (perfectly in line) escort cards; creating dessert displays; keeping bridal party organized; and helping to get bride and bridal party down the aisle.
WHO YOU ARE:
I need a HUSTLER. I mean it. This isn't meant to be a scare tactic, but the wedding world is not entirely (or even hardly) one of J. Lo style glamour. The absolute #1, non-negotiable requirement is that this person know how to hustle and have urgency in completing tasks--taking initiative to get the job done. (Sometimes that means carrying the flower girl to the bridal party photos like that <----)
In addition to knowing how to hustle, this assistant will have a great eye for detail and design. You'll be instructed to put table numbers on the tables, but there are several ways to do that. This person will style the details they execute.
Resourceful. What do you do when the wind picks up and the escort cards going flying? Think about it, and feel free to answer in your application email :) The event industry is a fast-paced one and I need someone who can think and act fast, using what resources he/she has to get the job done.
A lot of people come together to produce a beautiful wedding or event. And each one of those people needs to be treated with respect and professionalism. As an assistant and representative of Vanessa Noel Events, you'll speak and act appropriately, professionally, and kindly to vendors, guests, and clients.
Experience is required. If you were all jazzed about this until you read those dreaded 3 words, don't lose hope. I'm not requiring that you be a full-fledged event coordinator yourself (in fact, I don't want that), but I am looking for someone with some event experience. Go ahead; sell me.
I'm looking for someone who lives in Los Angeles or on the Central Coast, where most VNE weddings take place. Pay will be hourly and DOE.
