Wildgoose is one of the most creative and dynamic companies in the events industry and is looking for freelance event professionals to join our team, and help us through the next stage in our exciting journey. With growth of 340% since 2011, a growing team of 20+ core staff, and delivering in excess of 1,500 events in 2015 alone, we’re looking for freelancers who have a range of skills that will help us meet the demands of our clients across the USA.
Using our unique app, we deliver events across the globe on smartphones and tablets to corporate clients looking for anything from a fun break-out activity to a fully facilitated conference. This is not a job for the work shy, but rather is the ideal opportunity for someone who is looking for a platform to use their many talents to the max while pursuing other freelance work. We are currently looking for a range of freelancers from presenters to event crew but our event managers are the highest in demand. Our event managers need to be comfortable briefing groups of 20 – 200 people while making sure the event is delivered to the high standards of the company.
Over the next year we aim to deliver events in cities and locations across North America and need a range of competent freelancers who are able to help deliver them anywhere from mountain resorts to cities, from hotels to zoos!
